while watching a recording, every time I PAUSE or STOP the playback and do nothing for some time, MediaPortal suspends my system :confused::confused::confused: very annoying, even more annoying when new shows are beeing recorded in the background.

when I quickly switch to live tv (after I STOP a recording playback) the machine won't enter standby.

log attached, it entered standby at 18:53 (WM_POWERBROADCAST 4) after I've watching a recording.

I'm having the same problem with rev23684.

I'm using a Client PC to watch stuff and within a couple of minutes of a Recorded TV show finishing playback, the Server goes into standby.

I've got Powerscheduler Server plugin set to shutdown after 120 minutes and Network Monitor was set to 500KB/s, which was too high and I've reduced it to 100KB/s now, but I thought that MP Client was supposed to stop the Server shutting down while it was running.

I've attached logs as this has happened again. I was watching a TV recording on the Client and paused it and while it was paused, the Server went into standby.

You can see from tvserver.log that ActiveStreamsHandler was preventing standby whilst the recording was playing until 22:37, which is when I paused it, but PowerScheduler is using a lastUserTime of 20:39, which must have been when I last used the Server, and so shuts down as soon as I stop playback on the Client.

Surely the lastUserTime should be updated by actions on the Client. Or even more basically, shouldn't the Client be telling the Server it's running and so prevent it shutting down?

yeah, very annoying, it doesn't even check if there are currently active recordings, I wish they will add that option some time.

bump bump bump :p

Turns out I was being dumb and didn't have the Powerscheduler Client plugin enabled on the Client.

My turn to say :oops: :oops:

hey not fixed at all, it's still a bug, MediaPortal shouldn't go into standby within 60 seconds a playback is stopped or paused. when I do other thing with MediaPortal it doesn't standby as well within 60 seconds.

the PowerScheduler client plugin doesn't even work on Windows 7 and never had the problem before while the client side plugin was disabled when I tested that before.
will do some testing again with the client plugin again tomorrow to see it that's a workaround

    Client plugin MUST be enabled as it is the only way how server side can know if the user is using MediaPortal (in Vista / Windows 7 it is not possible to access desktop from the service processes for security reasons).

    I haven't ever hear that someone reports PS client plugin to be broken witn Windows 7.
