    I'm watching alot of streams on the web, and I launch these from within MP using Multishortcut, I have also set up PowerScheduler to go to sleep after 10 minutes, but for some reason Powerscheduler goes to sleep when I'm watching streams. Is there any way to prevent this? The "Force" tag is not tagged.

    Hi,
    You allowed it to suspend even when it's not in MP Home(set in MP Config -> Plugins ->PowerScheduler Client)?
    Also is this singleseat or stand alone client?

    Regards
    Roy

    The only think I've checked off is the "Shutdown client after being idle x minutes"

    Forced shutdown (shutdown even when prevented by other process)

    is not checked.

    It's only running MP client, TV-server is on a separate computer.

    Hi,
    Only way to prevent is to use the "Only allow standby when on home window", not used Multishortcut but if it has it's own window this should work, maybe someone else has another idea ;)

    Hmm ok, guess I might have to go back to using My Programs then.
