 From Help menu item select Internet Connectivity.  The Preferences 
window opens with the Internet Connectivity tab in front.  By default, 
this is set to automatically check for documentation updates and data 

But I don't know when the checks are made:  each time Mathematica starts 
or by some clock.  However, there's a button available on that tab, 
"Update Local Indices from the Wolfram Research Server", which I presume 
does the same thing manually.
