calibre shuts down after failed news download

When my computer has no internet connection and Calibre tries to make scheduled news downloads, it shows a notification dialog that news download failed and then Calibre closes itself when I click OK on the dialog.
Is there a way to prevent Calibre from closing after a failed news download?
Thanks,
Ari

Are you sure it's not just closing to the system tray?

No, it's not closing to the tray in this case. When this happens, Calibre actually closes. I have to launch it again. (I do, however, have Calibre set to close to tray.)

Here's a pic of the error message Calibre gives me when this happens.

Basically, when the computer wakes up, Calibre seems to try to download news before the computer is connected to the wifi and it says there's no connection and then throws this message. When I close the message or click OK, Calibre closes.
How can I fix this?

Here's a screen capture video (below) of what is happening -- you can see that Calibre is running in the system tray and then when I close the error dialog Calibre closes. Is there a fix for this?
Thanks,
Ari

Dont minimize to tray, instead minimize to taskbar and you should no longer see the crash. I cannot reproduce this crash so I cannot fix it.
