Steam and Mavericks
Anyone else having issues with Steam not reconnecting after coming out of sleep mode in OSX 10.9 Mavericks? I don't remember having this problem with the last OS.

It's usually fine for me, but on occasion I need to quit steam and restart it (steam) after waking from sleep.

steam's always been a bit slow and finnicky for me, but restarted helps.

It's weird. Have a Macbook Air and a Macbook Pro in this house, both running Mavericks. The Air can connect just fine, but the Pro gets the generic connection failure message every time I try to log in.

WFM, but I only use it for the friends chat on my air.

I've not encountered any problems at all since I upgraded to Mavericks.

I'm running Mavericks on an iMac and if I have Steam running while it goes into sleep mode, when waking up I cannot launch any game (it just becomes stuck at "Preparing to launch [...]".

I haven't taken any time to check other features, as I generally just quit Steam then reopen.

This is the exact problem I have. That and my friends list and online status are stuck and cannot be changed. I have to shut down steam and relaunch it. Things could be worse, but my point was that I don't remember this happening with Mountain Lion.

Aye I've had this happen on occasion and a full restart of Steam sorted it. Odd issue to have but heck it could be worse.

I have a similar issue as the original post. Steam doesn't launch any games after resuming from sleep mode.

Mavericks is definitely the issue here. Its a pain in the butt, not only does it refuse to reconnect, but when I close a game 1 out of two times I cant reopen it because Steam thinks its still "open". So I have to force quit steam and start over. Im thinking of going back to mountain lion, this crap didn't happen. Thanks apple.
