Since I migrate to MP 1.0.1 MediaPortal refuse entering standby mode by pressing remote power button. This worked well in MP 1.0.

When pressing power button TV Service seems to crash and MP display the dialog "connection to tv server lost"

Logs attached.

Thanks for your help.

I experience the same : TV server crashes both when I press the On/Off button of the Htpc and run the "Hibernate polite" in Girder .
I don't know much about MP but it seems to be caused by XmlTV that reports a bad date. See TV.log :
2009-04-18 10:40:49.725922 [Powerscheduler Suspender]: XmlTvImportWakeupHandler.GetNextWakeupTime 01/01/0001 00:00:00

I just hope the Standby feature of MP can be fixed soon also !

I use the basic plugin "PowerScheduler" for the client and the server, both set-up correctly.
Everything worked fine until yesterday when I had suddenly the same problem, same error message when trying to put MP in sleep mode.
(on my side I'm on Vista SP2 and MP 1.0.2).
I also found in the tv.log that it tried to do something with xmlTV before the error message. I checked the xmlTV plugin and found that the set-up time to run it was the current time, which was not ok because I defined it to be run at 20h00 every day. In the past I have remarked that this time is sometime automatically changed for an unknown reason. I put it back to my original setting and then, everything went back.... automatic sleep mode is back...
So I suspect that MP tried to run xmlTV when doing a sleep or hibernate and that makes the process crash.
What needs to be corrected is that automatic time update for xmlTV!
I have scheduled a recording for tomorrow morning so I will see if auto wake up is back too.
I'll let you know.

Yes everything is ok and back to normal. MP is correctly going to sleep mode and wakes up correctly. Recordings are going well.
So everytime I open and edit the server configuration I need to double check the value of the xmlTV plugin timing.
