If I leave Foldit running and suspend the computer (or if it goes to sleep on its own). When I rewake the computer, without fail the Foldit.exe crashes.

Since an option to debug comes up (I have VisualStudio installed from a course). I clicked it and it says this.
An unhandled win32 exception occurred in Foldit.exe[39772]

Unhandled exception at 0x77439ea5 in Foldit.exe: 0xC0000005: Acess violation reading location 0x6f6c6723

Foldit.exe has triggered a breakpoint

There are more errors but I didn't write them down. I can if it would help.

OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1
CPU: Intel Core2Duo T9300
HD: 320GB
GPU: ATI Mobility Radeon HD3450

If you need any other information please let me know.

I confirmed it. It happens 100% of the time. I did not do any debugging however.

I guess that answer would be to not suspend the PC when Foldit is running.

I could certainly see why this might cause problems, losing connection to the foldit servers.

Crashes under Linux? Don't use it under Linux. Crashes on a Mac? Don't use it on a Mac. Crashes on Windows?

I guess I don't see how this is a solution. Especially when a vast majority of Windows computers are set to suspend automatically, due to default Power-save options set by Microsoft, OEM.

This is odd. Today I tried to reproduce the crash I was experience so that I could attach a debugger for more information, but it is no longer happening.

Maybe there are certain conditions or circumstances?

Still happening faithfully on mine. Has happened thrice today. It sucks because occasionally I lose some points because of it.

For me related to:
When PC is suspended connections are broken and when it is waken up Foltit cant handle it properly and just crash.

It may be but one big difference which I can see is that it isn't game_library.dll which is crashing. It is FoldIt.exe which is crashing in this bug. I'll see if anything shows up in the log file. Didn't even think about looking in there.

I don't know if it is the same problem, but when my computer has been sitting for an extended period of time with scripts running (I have suspend disabled and run foldit while running other CPU intensive processes in the background).

When I start using the client again after it has been sitting for a few hours or longer, the machine tries to make a call to \Device\Harddisk1\DR103. I assume this is a remote device, or a device on development machine, because it is certainly not one that has ever been on my machine.

Failing to find this drive, foldit crashes ;P
