If you have nscd (Name Services Caching Daemon) enabled, yes.  However,
that will only cache the UID/GID lookups, and not authentication.  If
you are using local authentication, then no problem :)  Also, if you
wanted a file sharing service that would work better with a laptop, look
at Coda instead (at least for home dirs).  Coda has a concept of a
disconnected mode, and caches locally the most used items that are on
the share.
