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.
OS version — Windows 10
Station version — 1.35.0
