Because you have Dropbox installed on your computer - that uses a secure token which means that Dropbox is always signed in.

The only way to not be signed in constantly is to not use the software on your computer.

Also, please not putting your email on a public forum is dangerous - its a sure fire way to get spam/junk and potentially phishing emails etc.
