This depends on you system values for the Disconnect Activity Timer
(QDSCJOBITV) and the Device Recovery Action (QDEVRCYACN) values. By
default QDEVRCYACN is set to '*DSCMSG', a disconnect message is sent to
the user's app. Try using either '*MSG' or '*DSCMSG' which works best
in your environment. The Disconnect Activity timer defaults to '240'
in minutes. The session must use a static workstation name i.e.,
MIS001, PAY001, etc. QPADEV* type devices will do an End Job. You can
view what jobs get disconnected by looking in your history logs for the
message id of CPF5140.
If you reconnect with in the Activity timer, the job will be reconnected
and your job needs to be evaluated for recovery . In my past and
current environment, when I reconnect, I lose nothing.

Usually you connect but get warned that your messages are being
routed to your old session. WRKJOB can fix this.
