Thanks for a wonderful program. If my computer powers off through lack of use while stellarium is on screen, then when the computer wakes up again, stellarium doesn't work. If it's on full screen when this happens then I have to restart the computer- not just stellarium. If it is working in the background when the computer goes to sleep then everything is fine. This has happened on two laptops now so I'm guessing it's a bug not a problem with my computer's settings.

I'd love to try & use the latest version, but unfortunately whenever I run it, the initial splash screen pops up, then immediately drops down to a small 'white' window and appears to freeze, doing nothing else till I manually close it ....

This isn't the place to discuss software errors, but I don't see an obvious support forum, so here's a copy of the log.

I'm having exactly the same problem Julian. Any news on this at all?

Hi Alexander,

Thank you for the new version. I went for the beta v0.20.0.17814.

It runs fine. Again, I get the best result on my 4K monitor and NVIDIA 1060 in ANGLE Direct 3D 11 mode. I tried the others, but in ANGLE the fonts and lines still look perfect and in the rest not.

I just installed today and will let you know if I come across any issues.

I am very grateful to you and the others of the Stellarium team.
