Whenever you open an Aras-managed Office file from your local working directory, it will attempt to have you log in to Aras Innovator immediately. But occasionally you may have the need to work with Office applications while disconnected from the company network, meaning that you don't have a connection to Aras Innovator. In this case, when the login dialog appears, just close it using the "X" on the window, and you can then continue to work on the file locally. When you reconnect to the company network and have access to Aras Innovator again, you can just click the Refresh command in the Aras ribbon, and it will prompt you to log in and establish the Aras connection.
