suspended animation and 2 screens
I use ver 6.0.0.937 on Win XP Pro

I keep my computer on most of the time and I find that frequently, perhaps every day after the screen has gone to sleep, WT has no labels or clock content.  The frame is there.  I cannot click it.  If I click the systray icon nothing happens.  All I can do is use task manager to kill it and restart.

Also, I have a dual screen setup, (one virtual screen across two monitors).  Every other ap I can drag from one screen to another, but not WT.

Regards
David Grugeon

Re: suspended animation and 2 screens
The hard disk does stop after a period of inactivity.  That must explain why WT dies.

The screen setup is - my laptop screen is set as the secondary screen and the monitor as the primary, although it displays with the laptop on the left.  The laptop screen is marked "Extend my desktop onto this Monitor".

I can drag the taskbar, with systray etc, from one screen to the other.

Re: suspended animation and 2 screens
I have an idea for both of these...

point 1) is it just the screen that goes to sleep - or do you have your system set to sleep the Hard Drives as well? if the latter WT might be crashing when it trys to write a log entry.

2) I also have dual screens and I can drag it - BUT only if I have it set to be a spanned desktop - the reason is that WT checks to ensure it is not being opened outside the visible deskop area - which on some dual monitor systems is the way things are configured.
Now if Im wrong and it is a spanned desktop (i.e. your system tray and clock are on the far monitor) please let me know.
