Created a bug report: 64922

Anyone else having trouble afk-travelling with vista 64?

Seems to be getting a lot of problems whenever I try to do it in my freighter. Typically - I will do around 5-6 jumps, then the power option settings shuts down the DISPLAY only.

This seems to cause trouble with Eve: it seems to stop processing information sent to the client. When I get back to the cpu, it seems as it tries to play catch-up - and I get to see a ****load of ships arriving at gate, then disappear next second, ap trying to jump, failing to do so, etc etc.

An option I guess is to disable the monitor turn-off in Vista - but I kind of like to keep it there... And Eve should be able to run normally, shouldn't it, even though the display is sleeping?

The sleep-mode of the display should affect your AFK-flying.
Any other powersettings might, have you checked those?

All other power settings are checked: the only thing that turns off is the monitor.

Might be totally wrong, but I assumed that programs keep running even though the monitor is off.

Will check for sure next time I do a freighter trip by turning off the monitor physically instead, and removing the sleep option from power setting all together - that should make me figure out if that's what stops eve from processing information it recieves (because it DOES recieve the info sent from server, since it has a REALLY hard time processing everything that's happened the last hour or so when I return to the computer.... )
