I'm using Messages 7.0.1 on Mountain Lion (10.8.4) and I'm experiencing an annoying problem whereby, when I return to my iMac having put it to sleep, large chunks of conversation are missing. However, if I quit Messages and instantly re-Open it, the missing parts of the conversation re-appear.

 

Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Hi,

     

    The Mac will effectively close any network as it goes to sleep.

    The iMessages server in this case will presume you have left.  (much the same way a iPhone will leave a WiFi network)

     

    Whilst the network is shut down you will get no new messages.

    When you wake the computer it does not class the Logging on to the server as a new session.

    So you get no items/Messages synced.

     

    However restarting the app does create a new session and iMessages will play  catch up.

     

    The only "fix" is to not let the computer Sleep.

    OK, thanks. I wonder if Apple have solved this problem in OS X Mavericks?

    HI,

     

    Sleep ?

    The app not doing what people expect ?

    Closing the Network On Sleep ?

     

    I doubt that any of these will change.
