Have you tried:

       Do not exit after a connection is  terminated;  instead  try  to
       reopen the connection. The maxfail option still has an effect on
       persistent connections.


Do you have set:
 idle n
       Specifies that pppd should disconnect if the link is idle for  n
       seconds.   The  link is idle when no data packets (i.e. IP pack-
       ets) are being sent or received.  Note: it is not  advisable  to
       use  this  option  with  the  persist  option without the demand
       option.  If the active-filter  option  is  given,  data  packets
       which  are  rejected by the specified activity filter also count
       as the link being idle.
