Did you try changing your idle-time setting, via a script, before running your automation? Apple's answer seems to say that it is manual disconnects that reset the dial-on-demand setting, so instead of forcibly disconnecting, let it die by itself after all your processing is finished.

    I considered that and mentioned it in the Apple bug report, but not here. Basically, I have a static IP address and do a lot of web development: I'm constantly getting hit by worms, Code Red, port scans, blah blah blah, all of which defeat the idle timeout.
