    I just got a new machine that runs Windows 8 so I have not seen this issue before, not sure if it is a know issue, it never happened for me on Windows 7 with previous builds

  • Can't reproduce, my Win8 dev machine can sleep and resume just fine without crashing C2. I think this might be a graphics card driver bug, are you sure your drivers are up to date?

  • Yes the driver is up to date. It doesn't happen every time, just a number of times in a few days that made me notice. Not a big deal, I will just save/close before walking away or switching user. As long as it doesn't crash while I'm working I'm happy <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Turns out the driver was not up to date, the auto-detect feature on AMD's website was showing it as current but when searching manually I found a much newer one. Sorry for the confusion.
