Boot2docker automatically closes after a period of inactivity win7

(Refschool) #1

ok to be more accurate, i start Boot2Docker, do some stuffs, and go away my windows 7 sleeps, when i am back after one hour or so, wake windows, i just barely see boot2docker shell one seconds and it disappears (I supposed it is shut off), i have to start it again but the processes are still running.

ah, ok - so the VM keeps working, but the shell has some kind of problem with the computer sleeping.

I think what is happening is that the ssh connection from the shell to the vm times out due to the sleep - but re-attaching will work fine.

so ya, normal :confused: This might change when there is a Docker client for windows.
