my MP loose always the focus of the client app. In my case, I go to work, the htpc is still running, but I switch my tv off. If I come back and turn the tv on, MP is not running in Fullscreen, I have to click on the window in the taskbar. Why does that happen is that because of the sleep timer?

    Switching the TV off means that from a Windows perspective you no longer have a monitor attached. Consequently the respective device disappears.

    Either leave the TV in standby or look for a special HDMI switch that keeps the HDMI connection alive, despite the attached screen being switched off.
