My problem is that everytime my iMac is recovering from a long standby mode, Station is completly stuck.
Can’t click anywhere and have to kill the process. Moreover, CPU usage is still high even is Station is stuck.
It did happen manytimes on short standby mode two weeks ago, but not every since.

My problem is that … the program becomes completely unresponsive, grays out (‘Not Responding’), and can’t be closed (or even force killed) when device hibernates and resumes.

Appreciate the merge, but to ask - any expected timeline to resolution?

Mind is a little blown that there are a couple dozen users who can’t use your product due to a bug for two months (a top 15 issue by replies) and there’s not even a reply from someone on the Station team…

With the last update my Station is going after a few hours blank, have to close the program. Still can’t copy and paste text.

Hey @goke, @dbenj, @Christoph, @Valdo_Ghafoor, @Marc_Frey, @Tom_Avatars, @ashwanihere, @pseudoh, @Jean-Jacques_Auffret, @Manuel_Merz, @jeremybbauer, @Sam_Borick, @BigPixel, @Bojan, @Michael_Clinton, @Christoph, @Andreas_Wagner, @AlvaGB, @mbfobbs :wave:

This should’ve been fixed in Station’s latest version (1.31) :partying_face:
Could you update your Station and tell us if it’s been solved for you?

To update, just open the preferences (from the “Station” top bar menu) and click the “Check for updates” button on the right.

I’m using 1.31.0 and just ran into this issue again this morning unfortunately.


(Gottfried Keller) #28

I already updated to 1.31.0 and still have the problem.


(Jean Jacques Auffret) #29

Using 1.13.2 now.
This news made me use Station again (I had dropped it because of this problem).
I did not run into the problem again so far but it looks like my keyboard entries get slowed down at times.

In short, I’m hopeful but not (yet) 100% confident. Time will tell, but thank you to bring me back to Station anyway, I had missed it!

Aside from making the rest of my PC slow whenever I have it open, this issue also happened to me. Why I stopped using Station. I loved the app so I wish the Station guys could fix this. :frowning:

My problem is that … Station not responding after windows resumes from standby mode.

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

The current version of Station seems to be crashing very frequently. I can’t seem to keep it open for more than 20 minutes. It just crashes randomly - whether it’s in the foreground or background!
I have HipChat, Gmail and Telegram configured on it - with light usage.

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

A few times now, if I leave Station running overnight, I come to the computer (Windows 10) and find that the application doesn’t appear to be running anymore. The window is gone, and although the app is pinned to the taskbar, it appears as if it hasn’t been started.

Here we can see that Station is pinned to the taskbar and running (with the underline), but in the morning I find the app there but no underline, as if it’s not running:

Sometimes starting Station seems to work, but occasionally it doesn’t, and I had to reboot before it’d start working again. I also found that the CPU was running hot, and trying to use Chrome or other browsers was extremely slow and stuttering.

Today I found all these Station processes running the CPU in the background. I killed them and restarted the app and it worked fine. This seems to be very repeatable, but I’m not sure what the conditions are except for leaving Station running in the background for long periods of time. I’ve never had this problem in the middle of the day (in my memory, which isn’t perfect)… it always seems to be after leaving it running overnight.

Looking at Task Manager in the morning, after Station isn’t running. I tried starting Station, but no app appears. In one case the Station app came up but remained blank. The entire time my laptop’s fan is running high.

Looking at Task Manager after I’ve killed the above processes, and then restarted Station. It now appears to be running OK. The CPU fan goes back to quiet after a few moments.

Hi,

The same at my laptop - boring / annoying / frustrating / #!%"/%!@&##>&@!!!

I wonder, if that’s in connection with the time Station was not active, the time Station is running, the number of apps/pages that are open.
Actually, in Chrome or Firefox this never happens.

I very much think of leaving it and open my work related web-apps in a normal speedy browser. Though, the promise is great… The first post is 4 months old now and a few new updates were released - and only 1 reaction from the staff (as I can see).

I’m using
Station - latest (as soon as I see there’s update)
Win 10 - latest

Cheers,
Géza

Happens again. Leave Station running overnight, come to the computer in the morning to find the fan running loud. Check processes and see that one of the Station processes is burning:

Kill the process, and the fan goes quiet. Restarting Station now works fine.

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

Ever since Station auto-upgraded to 1.36.0, when I come back to my laptop after leaving it for anywhere longer than an hour or so (didn’t time it), I often find it completely unresponsive in the app when I click. I hear the fan spin up a bit, and then after about 10-15 seconds, it starts to respond to clicks and works. This has happened to me at least half a dozen times in the few days since I’ve been at the new version. It didn’t happen in this manner in 1.35

Here’s what it looks like when I’m returning to the computer:

And then shortly after it stops hanging and starts working again:

My problem is that … Station is freezed and unable to click anything after leaving it overnight at home.
Could you please have a check about this ? Thanks

As you noticed, the same freezing also happens with latest version 1.36, hope to have the fix soon,

Thanks a lot


(Gabriel T) #40

The same happens to me.

  • :desktop_computer: OS version — OSX 10.14.2
  • :gear: Station version — 1.36.0

Does anyone know if the developers are aware of this or if anyone is working on it?
