XP Network Status Display

I have my laptop recieving internet from my computer in
another room and somtimes the computer gets switched off
disconnecting me from the net, is there any way to let
the person see on the login welcome screen that "Laptop
is connected" or a message appears saying "other machines
are using the internet through this pc are you sure you
want to switch off" - but i only want these to happen if
my laptop is switched on and on the network ?

Is there a way ?

Thanks :) !

Try talking to the person and convince him not to
shutdown his machine. Some old fashioned human
communication can solve your problem...why look any
further. Buy the guy a beer, and all will be fine.

Windows messenger is quite a good way of telling who's on.
