    As title,

    I reinstalled Steam a couple of hrs or so ago on my new rig, and been going through my games, getting them up and running again (the first time starts), but now ive restarted my rig, i can't log back in, when i pop my password in, i just keep getting 'Could Not Connect To Steam Network', and when i click on the 'Network Troubleshooting Tips', it just loads a page saying :-

    'Service Unavailable - Zero size object
    The server is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later.

    Reference #15.c2c1ab8.1419098995.5ed1e58 '

    Anyone else having probs ?

    It's been doing it for a week or two to me, weirdly enough started after I wiped my machine too

    If you close the error and try logging in again, it fails again, but if you put your password in again, it logs in the second time usually - for me anyway

    Same for me, at last! :D

    Solved my no sound issue in Bioshock too (as having to use the onboard, as my Xonar isn't working properly).

    Thanks to AJV111 on the Steam forums for that. :)

    Another steam issue:

    For the past few days Steam has been keeping my monitor from going to sleep after a set amount of time. This only happens if you have the store page open (even minimized to the tray) it blocks the screen from sleeping / locking. If you go back to any non-store page the issue goes away.

    I have been able to reproduce this by setting my screen turn off timeout to 1 minute and opening the steam store.

    If you run 'powercfg -requests' from cmd you can see what has locks on various functionality (such as the display).

    When steam is open to the store page you get the following:

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -requests
    DISPLAY:
    [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Steam\bin\steamwebhelper.exe
    Playing video
    When Steam isn't on the store page you get no locks.

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -requests
    DISPLAY:
    None.

    I for one have never had a problem with steam being I would never use it or any other online service to store my data. I keep my data on my own hardware and have ability with media to sale what I invested in. Honestly, I am going to love the day when steam and other services like Microsoft cloud, and apple cloud all get hammered and all the money you invested goes POOF !

    Yeah... this is typical Steam Holiday Sale behavior.
    More surprised people are surprised by this. It happens every year.

    When it starts affecting someone's ability to play their games, as someone above mentioned about SOM, then NO we should not be expecting this kind of thing.
