  1. Latest version of Libreoffice - i assume - as i just downloaded it
  2. Mac Book pro - yosemite

Thanks for any help all.

There are a number of reasons why LO would want to connect to the Internet. As just one example, examine Menu:Tools Options LibreOffice Online Update Check for updates automatically. If 'Every day' is ticked then you have at least one reason.
