I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but a couple times now I've disabled a research station only to be unable to turn it back on. You can see here that it says it's disabled, yet my option for this is to *disable* it. If I click that, I get the option to enable... which just repeats the process. Reloading doesn't help. The only option I've seen so far is to deconstruct/reconstruct but that is getting a bit tiresome.
It doesn't happen every time, but at this point it's happened once out of a few tries with the research and advanced research stations.
I have seen people talk about mods - I don't have any. I just installed this game today.
EDIT: I'm not sure why it's working now, but it is. Not sure how to mark this as resolved.
EDIT 2: I'm think observing that the duplicants have to turn on the station themselves, which isn't always immediate. Sorry I didn't catch that sooner!
I simply disabled the station and tried to enable it again later.
