Code execution stops after connection is dropped

Hello everyone,

I just made my first Blynk project and I’m having a silly issue I haven’t been able to solve with the documentation and other topics on the matter. I’ve tested my code without the Blynk part and works perfectly.

My problem is that whenever I cut power to the ESP01, the code execution stops. If I power on the ESP01 again, no connection is established to the Blynk server and the code execution is still frozen. In a nutshell, I want to be able to:

  1. Execute all the code if the Arduino is not connected to the server or if connection is dropped, and
  2. Reconnect to Blynk server after connection is dropped for whatever reason.

Details as follows:

Hardware: Arduino UNO + ESP-01[ESP8266] (Connection to server tested, working properly)
Smartphone: iOS (Tested, shows Arduino connected)
Blynk server: Local (Tested, working properly)
Blynk Library version: 0.6.1
Sketch: I will provide the Blynk nuts and bolts, void setup() and void loop() as everything else works properly:

void setup()
    Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass, "", 8080);
void loop()

Many thanks in advance!
