Hey guys, I have posted my problems on a couple threads but I have yet to get an answer as of late. I have had some progress with getting MP to go into hibernate automatically, and wake up for recordings, but now I have the opposite problem of what I started with. At first I couldnt get MP to automatically go into standby, and now it goes into standby regardless of where I am in MP and what I am doing. Here are my settings.

MP config
standby after xx minutes: checked
standby only on home screen: checked

MP TV config
standby after xx mintues: checked
wake up for recordings: checked

Now with these settings on I couldnt get MP to go into standby, so I downloaded pvr-scheduler and it worked, but now MP goes into standby constantly. The settings I have for PVR are
allow standbby only in home screen: checked
do not allow standby when in fullscreen: checked
do not allow standby when recording: checked
do not allow standby when DVD playing: checked

So yopu can see my problem with having MP go into standby whenever. I have tried alot of different settings, so if anyone knows what I should do please let me know. I will also post my TV and MP logs, along with my PVR settings and logs.

    For pvr-scheduler you have to contact them, we don't make it & therefore can't make support in it either.

    PVRScheduler should be unnecessary nowadays, unless you need some of its very advanced features by the way, is this a singleseat or multiseat setup.

    Worst case scenario, try with ForTheRecord, this uses windows own power settings, so will give you a indication if Vista is behaving itself.

    My is a single set up. I will try for the record, I didnt know it helped with power scheduling. The only reason I tried PVR was because I couldnt get go into standby to work with just the mediaportal setup. If I uncheck go into standby then the computer doesnt go into standby. Thanks for the replies.
