Description of the issue:
For around a month, Brave browser crashes every time my Windows 11 laptop is asleep for more than 1 hour or so.
If the Brave window was already open on the screen when I put the computer to sleep, after I reawaken my computer from its sleep state, the system gives me a “Not responding” message and then Brave crashes after a few minutes of attempting to load. Afterwards, when I try to open Brave, the system gives me this same “Not responding” message repeatedly - it takes around 6-10 cycles of opening and closing Brave for it to actually start working again.
If my Brave window was minimized when I put the computer to sleep, it has already closed during the time that it was asleep and the application has been quit when I reawaken my computer. The same issue occurs with the “Not responding” message when I reopen my computer, and it once again takes 6-10 cycles of opening and closing Brave for it to start working again.
A similar issue occurs when my laptop is asleep for less than around one hour (these numbers aren’t scientific). The system shows me a “Not responding” message, but it doesn’t crash and loads all of the tabs I had open when I set my laptop to sleep - rather, it just takes a while for the “Not responding” message to go away and for the browser to start working.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Let the computer fall asleep for around 1 hour or so
- Reopen computer from sleep state
Expected result: Brave should reopen immediately and show me all the tabs and windows I had open when I set my laptop to sleep - the browser should not crash.

Additional Information: This is really frustrating - it takes 10 minutes for Brave just to open, load, and actually function when I open my laptop every morning. What can I do to fix this? It’s not reasonable for me to never set my laptop to sleep mode - I’ve already tried this and the battery drains heavily.
