    I didn't know that PS++ could prevent user induced shutdown. Do you mind pointing me to how I enable this. Surely if it does this, it will do it when a recording is running as well though, so I don't understand why you say there's no option to prevent user induced shutdown when a recording is running.

    Configuration - MediaPortal Wiki

    The options in question are
    • Prevent Power off while grabbing EPG
    • Prevent Power off while processes are running
    • Prevent Power off while shares are active
    • Prevent Power off during network activity

    However, it seems that a true shutdown or restart cannot prevented this way, as mbuzina points out.

    I mean that I don't nead PowerScheduler beacause my ServerPc is always on. There is ther Program Ip-Symcon for the Home Automation the needed an always on Pc :) So I need only a Plugin or anything else that prevent an restart of the system when a recording is active. If this is possible I will try this Plugin and test it.

    OK, I knew PS++ could go to Away mode. Seems like those options should be re-labelled "Prevent Standby" rather than "Prevent Poweroff" then.

    I have my power buttons set to "Do Nothing" so I don't have to worry about them, just have to avoid shutting down, etc via MP or Windows.
