Station becomes unresponsive after long periods of inactivity / freezes when coming from another app / crashes after resuming from standby


:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

I leave my desktops on most of the time (for weeks at a time often). While it is on, I always have station up. Lately, I’ve noticed that when I come to the computer in the morning most days, I can no longer switch between apps as everything except the currently loaded webpage becomes unresponsive. I can’t click any of the app icons in the station bar on the left, nor can I use the file menu at the top. This has forced me to restart station at least once pretty much every morning for the past few weeks.

:writing_hand:Brief description of the issue

When working with other software windows and going back to Station, it’s freezed and it needs a lot of time to be usable again. I often have to close and relaunch because waiting is too long.
Station should be a help with time, henceforth, it actually does the opposite, please fix this!

Station lags sometimes when you come from another app. The App is frozen, after 2 minutes it’s back again. This happens since the last update

bug still present in version 1.25.1

push push
…got the same Bug now on a different Computer, also windows.

I experience this as well on 1.25.1 (on macOS Mojave). Sometimes I have to kill Station, other times it comes back in a few seconds.

Been trying to record it, but it’s not consistent.

The issue I’m facing is …
The app just freezes for me today, happened already 3 times. Seems to be connected to the popup

When the pop up is open and I click any of the app on the sidebar Station freezes.

(David Baxter) #11

Not sure why, but the Windows Station app (just updated to 1.7.1) is freezing for a bout 5 seconds on a regular basis…

Didn’t used to do that, but it is getting tough to use the app.

Anyone else having this? Any work around?

:writing_hand:Brief description of the issue

My problem is that I open station, go do my work elsewhere, and when I come back to station it does not respond to any clicks. I have to force quit and restart. Repeat,

:warning:Mandatory details

  • :gun: Trigger — some amount of time passing

  • :movie_camera: Explanatory gifs/pictures — None needed, the resulting behavior is not explainable by a video or gif because station does not DO anything. The error is that station does nothing, ever.

  • :gear:Station version — 1.24.0

(Jeremy Bauer) #13

I’m having the same issue. It started after the last update.

(Tom Avatars) #14

Same here! It seems to freeze and I have to wait a while before I can use it again.
I’m on OSX 10.13.6

(Manuel Merz) #15

Yes noticed the same on my machine (Win 10 Pro, 64-bit). Hope it get fixed soon.

:writing_hand:Brief description of the issue

My problem is that after returning to Station after a period of doing something else on my computer, Station gets unresponsive for typically one minute before it comes to life again.

:warning:Mandatory details
Interacting with applications does not work, and switching apps does not work either.

This make Station close to unusable, and I’m on the verge of dropping it and getting back to my old browser (a pity since I love Station and your great work on it…)

(Ashwani Agarwal) #18

Having the same issue. Nothing in debugger or anywhere.

Though the application which is open inside Station works a bit (I’m able to scroll; but not click anywhere)

But the Station is unresponsive.

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

I use Station a lot, but when I’m doing something else, after a while, when I go back to station (with Cmd+tab) it’s freezed. I have to wait a loooong time before I can use it again, or close/open the app. In one word : Unusable.
