    I have the MP screen saver set for the default of 5 min. to prevent burn-in of my screen.
    When it goes into screen save mode, it stops responding to most keys.
    I can only revive it with mouse movements or with the MCE remote BACK button.
    My keyboard doesn't seem to work at all.
    Furthermore, even after the display is reactivated, MP remains unresponsive (except to MCE remote BACK).
    It appears that MP has lost focus, perhaps to the MP Watchdog, which is the only other application running.
    IAC, I can get things to work normally again by using Alt-TAB on the keyboard to restore focus to MP.
    Any tips as to possible cause and/or corrective measures would be most welcome!
    Didn't attach logs, aince they can't record the absence of an event!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
