Right now, there is not much you can do; at this moment, probably 
disabling logon delay is the best advice I can give.
Normally (regular desktops, always in LAN), WPKG service tries to 
connect to a network share (as a user, depending on configuration).

If it can't connect, it won't block anymore, even if the timeout is large.

Under normal circumstances, it should timeout in about 30-60 seconds, if 
the server is specified with the name (\\server - DNS will fail faster).
However, there are lots of factors that can affect it, and in the end, 
it can last much longer:

- network settings
- firewall
- cached credentials
- etc.

That said - the next WPKG Client release will include a "laptop mode", 
designed specially for computers which are often disconnected. It should 
be released in December this year.
