Citrix Receiver and OS X App Nap

If you are using OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and use Citrix Receiver you might notice, as I did, that my Citrix Receiver sessions would end unexpectedly. App Nap was introduced in the latest release of OS X and enables the OS to save energy by pausing application when they are not visible.

You can turn off App Nap per-app by selecting “Prevent App Nap” on the Citrix Receiver app. I made this change yesterday and I haven’t been disconnected since.

  1. I had this problem and it was resolved by turning off the firewall on my Mac (running OS X 10.11.1). I’m sure I could have added a firewall exception rule if I cared about keeping my firewall on.
