Thank you very much. The problem I was having recently was that whenever I close chromebook for a while and come back all my tabs were grayed out and each one had same message, ¨opps ....... reload¨  I thought that the setting in question may have been turned off, it wasn´t, and was cause of this problem. I now think the reason is that I turn off wifi each time i close the lid. However, the oops message only started popping up on all the tabs just recently. I will keep wifi on from now on and see if that is the cause but as I said, oops message was not problem before few weeks ago, maybe after latest chome update.  What do you think? Thanks in advance.  gtorydr@gmail.com  PS...do you use a chromebook? Just curious.  If so, and you don´t discussing your pros and cons, like to share my frustration with how poorly android and chrome os is working on same platform but android apps aside, chrome os/chrome implementation, especially how File Manager works, is really a ´hack´ job.  Tkx again.  Andrew

Great info/help, thanks. You spoke about google making change for better memory management tabs not used for a while now get discarded and i need to reload.Question, do you know why this was done, were there lot of problems with memory? I can have many tabs open (I think i started doing this cause closing chrome with setting öpen where you left off¨ doesnt work, chrome on windows will open and all tabs that were open re-appear, no on chromebook)  Also, with many tabs open, i don recall memory issues (slow chromebook)

How can i disable this OS resource saving measure, i want my applications to run normally in the background. I use a chromebook and run multiple external displays. Some chat apps (like Slack) basically stop syncing when it is not the selected window. Really hampers this device as a productivity device.
