I'm leaving my computer up all the time for MUSH.. And. sometimes, I'd leave it up .. And i'd come back and it's not there.. lol?

I've made sure 'prompt on wolrd close' is on so that it would ask me to close before it actually does.. But it's bypassing that.. Vanishing..

Help :/

Are you running Windows 98/ME by any chance?

I have never heard of MUSHclient just disappearing. Maybe sometimes it crashes with the usual error message box.

Perhaps what is happening is that the PC is totally rebooting while you are not there, and when you come back it looks like MUSHclient has gone, but it is in fact a reboot. Or could you tell, because you would see the network login dialog box?

In extraordinarilly rare cases a program or something it uses can fail and cause a shutdown of that program, often without windows reporting it, any error message being shown or, all too often' necessarilly releasing the memory it used. This has happened to me a few times under 98. Fixing it usually means fixing whatever caused the original problem, but since you get no error message, it usually ends up being a case of the system inexplicable fixing itself.

Note that this may be related to something that plaques me, where my internet connection will die on me for no reason after a more or less random period of time, also without any warning or error message. Sadly, the best I can say is 'it happens.' Why, I have no idea.

OK, just start the windows Resource Meter (rsrcmtr.exe). You can install it from the CD if it's not already installed. If i'm right, you'll see a message saying that all your PC's resources are being used when you come back to your PC.
