GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 3.8.4) of

I have access to an EC2 instance that we put to sleep when it isn't in
I did a dired to the /var/log/elasticsearch directory on that EC2
instance earlier, to read the logs locally in a nice editor.
When the EC2 node was sleeping, everytime I tried to do a dired or
magit-status operation, I got the message:
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell
and emacs was hanging, presumably trying to contact a computer that
currently wasn't available.
After I had killed all of the "scp"-something buffers, dired and magit
operation of emacs was back to normal.
I rarely stop or restart my emacs, and I tend to just let the buffers
Is there a way to let tramp-related buffers connected to the EC2
instance hang around in emacs without the annoying message popping up
when the EC2 instance is sleeping?
