Running MySQL with no Internet

I have a program that uses MySQL for storing some data, but not enough that it needs to be on a separate machine. Normally this machine is connected to some sort of internet or intranet.

I would like to be able to take this machine OFF of all network connections and still have it work just pointing everything at localhost. When I took this machine off the internet, I was no longer able to connect, either through the Browser tool or command line. I only get 10061 error saying it can't find localhost.

Based on my research this means it can't find a network connection (which makes sense) but is there anyway I can set up MySQL such that if there is no network connections it will still accept all incoming requests through localhost? I also need this to be transparent to the programs that connect given that changing them is not something I will be able to do. I would guess there's some server setting to set in some .ini file but I can't figure out what it is.

I use a Windows machine and i'm running MySQL 5.0.
