#163 closed Defect (Won't Fix)

Disconnects as soon as machine sleeps

Description

Disconnects as soon as machine sleeps

  1. Connect to a server
  2. Put machine to sleep, easier on a powerbook

Expected result:

If the machine isn't asleep long enough for a ping
timeout, it should attempt to re-ping the server as
soon as the machine wakes up and display everything I
missed.

Actual result:

Disconnects as soon as the machine goes to sleep.

A lot of times my powerbook goes to sleep on me because
i've been ignoring it, but I catch it 30 seconds or so
into sleep, or even immediately, but it's too late;
Colloquy has already disconnected me from the server.
There's no need to do this, with ircle I can have the
machine sleeping for as long as it takes for the ping
to timeout, wake it up and catch everything I missed
from the server.

It's not major, just annoying to have to reconnect.

It's intentional. We would rather disconnect intentionally than to ping a timeout.

Even if it's intentional, it's the reason I'm giving up Colloquy. It used to be PERFECT for work (Go to a meeting? No problem! Come back and catch up on IRC...). Now it's a lame, non-functional tool. So sad. I used to love you guys.

this is ridiculous. You can claim it to be a feature, but clearly there should be a setting to enable users to decide not to quit the server when they are not actively using the host.
