Cfagent does not expect to be able to contact a server. If it fails,
then it fails and it will try again later. The main thing about laptops
is that they tend to be switched on and off alot, so you might not be
"on" at a time when a cfagent run is scheduled. A god idea might be to
put a cfengine run in the boot process.
