Suppress Network Error Popup upon losing connection

I have been using WinSCP for over 12 years now. Always wondered how to suppress the Network Error screen pop-up after losing the connection or when VPN connection timed out or if PC sleeps or hibernates while the connection was still on and throws error popup as soon as it wakes up.

Is there a way, that WinSCP remote window itself is greyed out to show the loss of connection with an option to reconnect, but no Network Error popup on screen? This would be a feature addition, if not already. Let the User chose whether they want a Greyed-out remote window or a Network Error popup.

This popup is causing my PC screen to freeze upon wake up. And if I switch between my monitor and laptop screens, this popup makes WinSCP unresponsive that I have no choice but to terminate it and restart. Also, the font-size on WinSCP suddenly becomes unreadable while switching between screens. That's another issue. Could someone please respond if that is even feasible what I am asking for? Or if it's already there somewhere and I'm not aware of it?

Thank you.

Re: Suppress Network Error Popup upon losing connection

So what is the problem? The popup or the freeze? I do not think that removing the popup would solve the freeze. If you want to try helping me solving the freeze, I'm sending you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.
