Tab Snoozing happens even with setting disabled

@gizmogadget No, I haven't actually left yet, GG, despite all my grumbling. Like you, I take a "compared to what" attitude toward this and I remember all the stuff I got tired of on Firefox and Chrome (Internet Explorer was always out of the question.) I did discover recently, however, and should have posted in case people didn't know, that it appears that the only tab that snoozes is the one that is selected, i.e., showing on the screen. Unfortunately, it happens pretty consistently with that tab, whatever site is involved. I'll look into that link you posted. Thanks again for all your work on this while the Opera people are still MIA. I gather this must be a part-time, side job for them.

I have clicked, "Disable tab snoozing," so many times, but it doesn't Disable it at all...

I might have found the cause of the problem and its solution. I urge all of you to try this. Because turning the "Snooze inactive tabs to save memory" switch off did not fix the problem, I tried turning it on. Opera has now been running for more than an hour with three inactive tabs, and it has not snoozed. If I am correct then the function of that switch is the reverse of what it is supposed to be.

Tab snoozing comes from Chromium, so all Chromium-based browsers do it. See https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=525216 if you want to complain.

Yes Opera is Chromium-based, but it is open source and should be up to the developers at opera to change this code as they see fit, not just skin it with their own interface and blame the underlying code. I can see the point of keeping it the same as possible to chromium, but when features start to be become too intrusive or plainly don't work, then something should be done about it.

Been generally happy with the browser. Until, it started snoozing tabs. What is the point of purchasing gigs of memory to keep my tabs active you the browser keeps snoozing them.
The are so many use cases for having tabs stay active, but primarily, i don't want to keep having to log into my security cameras because you snoozed the tab. Its not only inconvenient, its down right infuriating. stop it.
Guys, come on, I have actually started looking for a different browser now, i would rather not switch, but you are forcing my hand, and I never forget, and I never forgive.

I have two computers using Opera (always the latest version), one has the tab snoozing bug and the other does not, despite both being set Disabled to tab snoozing to save memory. No work around or fix yet? Pain in the ass.
