    What you do not say, is how you are closing MP down, menu\remote, which button etc.

    And its never good to bitch about something, especially on a first post.

    Welcome to MP

    Thanks for the quick reply on mediaportal shuts down windows when I close mediaportal

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Sorry for the bitches but the fact that when I close a prg and the prg also closes windows is something that pisses me off!

    The buttons I use are: the button at the opening- or closing window of mediaportal to close mediaportal. Then I get a new window with 4 buttons, 1 switch off, 2 restart, 3 sleep, 4 sleep position.
    When I use 1 switch off it also shuts down windows!!

    I just got mediaportal installed last night, but I think you are clicking the wrong button to close mediaportal. Just click the X to close mediaportal, the other button that may look like it is to close mediaportal, but is actually to close mediaportal and shut down your computer.

    that button does not exist in the last window I described. there is an other X button but that button appears only when I let mediaportal open itself in a small window. but that should not be the way to close mediaportal.

    X is the shutdown mediaportal button

    Which skin are you using, you can also get to the close button on many screens by going to the top bar.

    Please upload logs. Maybe it is some skinning issue that triggers the shutdown command (as you can use MP to close down the PC).

    I've done a few MP1 installs in the past and haven't had a problem, so I didn't expect one today. I just purchased a mini PC with Win11 installed. I downloaded and tried installing Mediaportal 1. I chose single click standard installation with no TV. It started working on things and I wasn't paying terribly close attention, but...
