Will my Mac automatically discover and disconnect from a Time Capsule as I arrive and leave from my apartment, and handle interrupted backups?
I'm hoping that the Time Capsule is a flexible backup option that doesn't require me to mount / unmount it as a drive every time I take my laptop on or off my home network. Does it work this way, or does it mount as a network drive which has to unmounted before you can depart? I'm hoping that automatic backups can be interrupted and retried the next time my computer connects to the capsule.

Unless you want to view the files on the time capsule it backs up automatically you don't have to mount/unmount the drive (on a mac). I don't know about interrupting the backup and if that could affect the files or not. It should be OK I think. There are also programs that allow you to start it backing up say at 2AM so it will be done before you leave in the morning
