I have created a 3D book application for a museum. It runs on a PC with a PIR that switches off the touch-screen monitor for power saving when nobody is around.

The problem is that when somebody turns up and the screen is switched back on again, the 3D layers of the interactive aren’t visible anymore - I just get a white or black layer depending on renderMode. The 2D layers above it still show however.

If I restart the app, then it works again.

My development machine doesn’t do this when I turn the monitor off, but I get the same behaviour if I change the screen resolution while the app is running. This leads me to believe that there’s some sort of automatic power saving in the museum machine that causes the GPU to reset.

Any way to reset Away3D in runtime to get the 3D layer showing again?

On further research, it looks like it’s a lost context issue.
