LoadStatus State changes when returning from Screensaver

When returning from the screensaver in our application, we noticed the loadstaus of a poster image that is ready goes to loading then back to ready again. Is there a way to prevent this? We are observing the loadstatus of this poster and this causes unwanted behaviour in this edge case.

Re: LoadStatus State changes when returning from Screensaver

This is because when the screensaver is active, texture memory is usually purged requiring the system to reload the image from the source URLs.  You can't prevent this, as there's actually something happening in the system that the state notifiers are telling you about, but you could decide to stop listening once you got the initial ready status.
