Propane needs to handle wake from sleep better

I've noticed when I wake a sleeping computer, most of the time Propane gets "stuck" try to load my open chat window tabs. Only by closing and re-opening from the lobby, or hitting command-R to reload -- for each tab I have open -- will the rooms load up. Perhaps when propane gets notified that the system has woken up -- and as soon as the network is available -- it can just reload all open room windows/tabs.

    What OS version and hardware are you using? I've seen a couple of reports about this but it's not something experienced by me or my 20+ colleagues so it's a bit hard to pin down.

    What I'm beginning to suspect is that there may be a problem with the new "power nap" feature. Thinking it may be allowing Propane to wake up long enough to reset the polling, but not long enough to fully re-establish the polling, eventually wedging everything.

    So if you're not on a new MBA or MBP retina then that will eliminate power nap as a potential sole-source of the problem.

    One thing I noticed, after waking up my computer. I saw some new message there, right before it blanked out to show the connecting message.

    It's sad to say that I have since moved on to Flint so I no longer have this issue.
