I almost always see the spinning loading icon with the message "Checking incoming and outgoing changes" in the bottom of IDE. I think it is happening because my repository is unreachable unless I connect VPN, and it's trying to update my repository, times out or something, and trying it again and again, and I'm quite annoed by the spinning annimation. I would like to check changes only when I need to.
I tried to follow suggestions from this stackoverflow post, but it seems the interfaces has changed a lot since then.
So any suggestions how I can disable checking incoming and outgoing changes?
Also the problem appeared when I upgraded to IDEA 15.
