Windows GMS2 version 2.2.5 crashes when closing my laptop(standby mode?)



I have noticed something which seems to be a bug in GMS2 version 2.2.5. When I close the lid of my laptop, essentially putting it into standby mode, the software crashes. when i log back onto the computer at a later time GMS 2 will have crashed. There is however no prompt for sending a bug report or anything when logging back on. I just know this to be the case as I was working on a project earlier and "closed the lid" on my computer to go and do other things and as i came back GMS2 had crashed; as software that you typically have in use stay active even though the PC is on standby.

I am using an old PC laptop with Windows 7, however. It does not happen with any other sofftware as far as i am aware of. It's not a huge problem but I thought i'd make you aware that it's there to be fixed for the next update or updates.


I've had an issue with that before as well, and the solution was to copy C:\Program Files\GameMaker Studio 2\mesa\opengl32.dll up to C:\Program Files\GameMaker Studio 2.
