Hi!

I've got a super annoying problem. Whenever I wake up my computer from sleep mode(Hybrid Sleep, it's a desktop) Opera loses internet connection. I've checked with other browsers and they all work like usual so the problem must be with Opera. If i restart the browser it works again.

This just started to happen out of the blue a while after I updated to 12.13. I updated to 12.14 in hopes that it might solve something but it still happens.

I can't for the life of me figure this one out so any and all help would be most appreciated.

Windows 7 64-bit
Opera 12.14

The last few versions of Opera have been less than stable,and there are a few users with the same problem as you ............but my Q is why do you even use the sleep mode for a desktop in the 1st place?

Would you be able to point me to any of those threads? My google-fu fails me.

 

If I'm away from the computer for a while it goes in to sleep mode and doesn't use any power, ergo my electric bill is lower. Is that so strange?

http://my.opera.com/community/forums/tgr.dml?id=2 You can read up on their forum,and as far as saving $$ with the sleep mode...............that's a myth and a load of malarky,nowadays. Just shut your monitor off when not in use...... :)

Thanks but that was the first place I tried to search. Started a thread and got zero response.

 

Hybrid Sleep effectively shuts the computer off and if it's not using any power it wont affect my electric consumption. I don't know why you think it's a myth, I suggest you read up on the subject. It's not by any means a lot of money saved but every little thing helps.

I'm not green but there are considerable power savings in low power modes.  There aren't too many wind-powered hard drives around.  I couldn't find a table I came across from way back but here is an example .  I recently wrote a script to run on exit from Hibernation (to run user's choice) but it would not help with the Opera situation.  My issue was that the waking PC would not appear in the Windows Network even though all the shared folders and file tree were visible in Explorer.
