After resuming from sleep (i.e. opening the laptop lid) an otherwise empty window is on top with title "..." and a spinner as content.

enter image description here

How can I get rid of this?

  • This window checks internet connectivity / displays a login window for a public wifi. If it disappears , it is that network connectivity is restored without any user interaction.

  • That is odd. The laptop is connected to my own private wifi network. And is not disappearing either, I have to close it manually. Feb 17, 2017 at 21:25

This is not a bug. It just checks if there is internet connection.

After a while it should print a text 'You are now connected to the internet blah blah blah...'. :)

It's just an information for you.

  • The thing is, it stays open indefinitely, spinning and all. Feb 18, 2017 at 9:13
  • Can you close it with an X?

  • So close it. I don't know how it works, but on my computer it pop up after a 10-20 minutes of using computer.

  • Don't you agree that it should not pop up on the first place? Feb 19, 2017 at 12:20
