Subject: X connections reset on PC sleep
Date: Tue, 12 Feb 2013 03:51:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <7BAAEF845FCF42B687F8A3181FD86025@ToshibaLaptop> (raw)

Sorry, I’m sure this is a known issue, but I can’t seem to locate any 
description of the problem in the FAQ, docs, or mailing list archives.

The problem is that when my PC sleeps, my X connections get reset with

           xterm: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) or 
KillClient on X server “somehost:0”

although the Cygwin/X server (Ver. 1.13.1) is still running. I’ve enabled 
logging, but I don’t see anything at all in the log file.

Is there some configuration to stop Cygwin/X from doing this? It’s extremely 
inconvenient to have to recreate all my windows if I happen to step away 
from the system for a while. I’m running the X clients under a Ubuntu VM 
(VMware Player), in case that is significant.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
