All Output Suddenly Stops (when idle)

At random, while warming up the bed and hot ends, my brand new Felix 3.0 will cease all output. The fans turn off, the stepper motors stop and the heaters turn off. But the communication with the host still works, and it reports no error. A reset brings it back. The strange thing is that it only happens while idle. It will print for hours without a problem, but try to warm it up for a few minutes, and BAM, it stops. Checked the EEPROM settings, but the timeout was set to zero (disabled).

I've noticed the same. Usually I just restart things and it's fine again - it's more of an annoyance really. I can't say for sure but it seemed to happen after applying the .9/12-23 firmware update. Are you running the same by chance? I haven't upgraded to .91 yet.

I'm running 0.91 (I had to update to get the dual extrusion option).
