Latest GW stops running when laptop sleeps

Windows 11 Pro and latest GW Elite

Often when closing lid and laptop goes to sleep, GW stops running

When lid opened, manually restarting works but annoying to be required

For now, setup a 1 hour repeated Task Scheduler event to start every day at 07:59

glasswire.exe -hide

Is there also a -minimized switch as -hide will popup window on desktop ?

Found an even better solution:

Robotask 9 x64 (v9.0.0.1068 currently) task that watches for Process to Finish (Trigger)
Loops all hidden windows and if GlassWire not found, verifies service is running and
Starts C:\Program Files (x86)\GlassWire\GlassWire.exe in hidden mode

Sorry for the issue. GlassWire should not stop when a laptop sleeps.

Please try a clean reinstall and see if it solves the issue, or if you are using any unusual software that might be killing our Windows service, please consider white listing our service.

Service keeps on running, it is GlassWire.exe that disappears from the monitored processes when lid closed/sleep

Robotask detects it automatically when lid is opened and starts the .exe in hidden mode, the systray icon automatically re-appears. I also have system write a tracker.log file when this occurs and it does not happen at every sleep event.

The service never disappears or becomes disabled so that is not the issue.

Sorry I misunderstood.

Did the clean install solve it?

No, clean install does not solve it. My posted solution works and requires no input from me.

From the history of GlassWire since 2014 nobody has ever reported needing to use “robotask” to do anything with GlassWire to make it function properly. If that is happening for you, then there is something wrong with the install.

Sorry for the issue but I’m glad you were able to find some sort of solution, even though it should not be necessary to use a third party app.

Just happened again, today and it corresponds with Administrative Event Error Log.

Robotask automatically caught shutdown and forced an immediate restart of GW

I have a somewhat similar issue on my laptop running Windows 11. After waking up from sleep the Glasswire icon either disappears from the tray or greyed out. Service is running and if the icon is grey I click on it and the window pops up showing the “connect” button which tries to connect to the local server and usually just FCs after trying for a while.

Running the app again from the start opens the window with no issues and all the stats showing.
