[PsychoPy Runner] Buggy behaviour in stdout and Windows blue circle

OS: Win10
PsychoPy version: 2021.1.4
Standard Standalone? (y/n): Yes

Runner is acting very strange when I run my experiments, with the “blue circle” of Windows appearing whenever I hover over the window.
The stdout is buggy as well, with print statements and logging not appearing in real time. They seem to respond somewhat whenever the runner window is clicked. Some of the first logs are even pushed to the back, right before ###Experiment ended####. See pictures.

Might be similar to this problem (Stdout updates only on mouse movement) - I am also using a dual monitor setup.

Thanks :slight_smile:

I’ve been looking further into the problem:

  • When running the compiled Python script from cmd, there is no delay or change in logging order - working normally and as expected.
  • When running an experiment from PsychoPy, as soon as one hovers over the Runner window the Stdout updates.
