Comment (by cypherpunks):

 > The "Owning controller connection has closed -- exiting now." message is
 more interesting to me. It means that Tor thinks the tcp connection to its
 control port got closed.

 How many different causes for this behavior have been previously

 > Is there some way that Windows is closing that localhost tcp connection
 when it returns from hibernation? Maybe some internal kernel thing timed

 Has that happened before with other Tor users? How is it usually resolved?
