Plugin freezes Intellij when sonar server is unreachable

Hi, our sonar server is available only from internal network. If I forget to turn on VPN, Intellij Idea or Webstorm freezes when Sonar plugin tries to communicate with the server. I’m not able to browse and edit code or stop sonar lint process. IDE is in general unusable. Only enabling vpn helps in that situation.

It would be good if communication with server happen in background without affecting normal work.
