    I clicked on some infantry and then clicked on a square to move them onto that square. Nothing happened. Me being very impatient at the time spammed the button for a few seconds. It then came up with a dialogue box telling me i was out of energy. I'd some how managed to burn roughly 25 energy with out actually doing anything. The counter in the top left hadn't been going down and their was no indication that the game was anything but temporarily frozen like it often is.
    Has anyone else come across this?

    On a separate note I think it would be a good idea to add a second dialogue box when converting "Energy Supplies" to "Rechargeable Power". I think you should do this because it isn't immediately made clear how valuable this resource is. I managed to spend all my "Energy Reserves" immediately because I wasn't paying attention when i closed the dialogue box.

    Thanks! I'll keep this in mind and let the devs know. Seems like a pretty big issue!

    Thanks for your suggestion too.

    Good suggestion on the text, we may not have the space but will take a look.

    When you said you lost 25 energy was that power (battery) or energy (lightenin jag)?

    On the same topic, I was having a conversation with someone and they didn't know how they could convert energy to power with out running down all of their power reserves. Maybe you could highlight that you can convert energy to power in the tutorial (or better if it is already done).

    Its happened again. This time i was trying to move a probe. I tried several different squares in range (green) but i couldn't move and then it said i was out of power. I managed to use 28 power with out moving. I wish i could give you more details but i cant work out whats triggering it.

    Thanks. Do you know any details about the machine. Operating system etc and had you been playing OK for a while and it suddenly happened?
