Hi
When my system wakes up from hibernate mode, all SSH connections are naturally cut off, including putty and winscp.
Unfortunately, WinSCP asks me twice for the password: At first it shows a password dialog which never succeeds to log me in. Then I get a message "Connection was closed by the server" or something. Then I have to type the password again.
Sometimes I am even back at the list of saved connections, after the first login attempt.

Would it be possible to remember the password in cases like this, and try a second time? The best would be if I don't need a mouse in the entire procedure, and I get as few dialogs as possible Smile

Thanks!

[Btw, putty isn't perfect either: First I need to respond to an error message telling me that the connection was cut. Then I have to click "Restart session" in the menu, and then type the password.]

This feature would spare you the first password prompt.
