Can remote only turn Mediaportal on, and never off? (1 Viewer)

Just got a harmony one remote, and I love it. Granted it takes some fiddling to get it perfect, but I pays off in the end.

While it's possible to change which devices it turns on and off when using activities, my problem is that the server running mediaportal decides for itself when to standby and when not to. It runs several different programs which require different things.

So when using my favorite activity on the harmony one, it turns the server on if its off, and off if its on.

Is there a way to program into mediaportal, or some other things, that if the server is on and not in standby, to not respond to the power signal sent from the remote? And if the server is in standby, actually respond and turn itself on with the same signal.

Ill guess youre better off disabling the on/off function in the Harmony software, and better make a manual ON/OFF-button in the screen on the remote. Well, just my 2 cents :)
