So I run Irssi on my VPS inside a GNU Screen session and sometimes accidentally close Irssi process when I log out, therefore forgetting to close the Screen session beforehand. Is there a way that I can prevent a Screen session from closing on disconnect?

So... your question is more about GNU Screen than Irssi? – Bob May 4 '13 at 14:24
Yes, my question is primarily about Screen. If you have an alternate solution to keep Irssi always open, I am all ears. – Peter May 4 '13 at 14:28
