Window Sleep Issue
Closed, DuplicatePublic


System Information
Operating system: macOS 10.14.2
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB

Blender Version
Broken: 2.80 beta, a77b63c56943 1-7-2019

My MacBookPro went to sleep and was plugged into another Samsung monitor via hdmi while the MBP's display was closed. When I woke up the system later, after lunch, the blender 2.8 beta UI was resized incorrectly. The area where blender renders its UI did not match the window size blender 2.8 beta is running in. See attached image.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Leave blender running with a file being edited. Change the window size. Let the computer goto sleep. Login and the UI was rendered to a smaller rectangle than the windows rectangle. ( resulting in some black background ) See attached image for comparison.

Hope the feedback helps.



Event Timeline

It didn't happen for me on 3d2ff33c2615. Does it have to be plugged into an external display?

Not sure if the display needs to be external. Though, I am describing my particular setup. That is, my laptop is closed and the display being used was the external monitor. Then the computer went to sleep with the active foreground app being blender. Might be hard to repro but I did take a screenshot for evidence. I can try both ways on my system to verify.

ok, this might be the trick. I resized the window before the sleep. So, I would wager the app is capturing a rectangle size when it starts up and its not matching the resized window. So, I could repro it.

Here is a screen shot of the repro with the additional step of changing the window size before sleep.

Nope, no success on my laptop. It's probably an issue with macOS when waking up and changing image resolution to match the external monitor. After waking if you resize it does the UI go back to the correct size?

I was able to do it again. I will be more particular in my description.

Regarding resize, I dragged the upper right corner of the window in towards the center to make the window smaller. I then moved the window to center it on my screen. I clicked once in the middle of the blender window. I then went to the Apple menu to sleep. I woke up the computer with the keyboard and mouse. My account requires me to login. So, I entered the user name and password. And the problem showed up again.

Note: My computer hardware is a Mid 2012 Mac Book Pro. The monitor is a Samsung U32J59x 61-inch (3840 x 2160) Display . Big monitor for my eyes.

I will upload another image as evidence.
