Waking from stand-by

Hi.

I want to share with you what happens when my computer (a Pentium 4 laptop)
wakes up from stand by.

If I have a running process (javaw.exe) when the computer wakes up javaw.exe
takes all the CPU it can get forever.

If I try to stop it from within IntelliJ it is not really stopped and I
always need to kill it through the Task Manager.

I am currently running 1.4.2_03 but that has been the case with prior
versions as well.

If I have a Java process run not from IntelliJ that also uses javaw it seems
that it is not a problem.

Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Is there anything I can do about it?

Thanks,
Amnon

Not me. I have noted though that Idea can use a lot of virtual mem, so
when swapped out it takes a lot of time getting out of swap.

And as moving mem from swap to live is an OS task, idea doesn't respond
at all at this time, so it looks somethin like your symptoms.

How much time do you wait until you kill idea?

Correction. I have this symptom with another java app.

I waked my portable jus't now and noticed that it went to sleep with a
java app active.

It took about 30 seconds for this app to recover, but it did recover.

I still think it's swap related.

Which stand by mode on PC are you talking about? Suspend to disk (all
memory gets written do disk)?

Shouldn't the system not swap at all? Stand by occurs transparently for
all applications, therefore waking up is just like sleeping never
happened. All memory is at the same place as it was before putting it to
sleep.
