    Is it possible to set up ppwerscheduler to go to sleep even if user paused video playing?

    My son pause video and go away for long time instead of stop playback.

    pausing the videoplayer should count as watching, but I dont know it exactly. PowerScheduler takes the information (if playing or not) from the Player...

    Hello Michael,

    I'm looking for an possibility to prevent my TV-Server going to sleep if WMP is used for streaming directly to my TV or any other upnp device.

    Is it possible with settings under "active shares"?
    e. g. share = "videos" / Client = "TV" / User = "radical" ?

    I hope you can understand my explanatian what I'm trying to do.

    Oh Hell, absolutly overseen this feature. Sorry.

    But as far I understand this means the TV-Server will stay awake no matter if I'm using streaming or not?

    Yes. We can use the TV server with any other device without PS++ clients (XBMC, Smart TV) and I use this feature to prevent to sleep the TV server if my/wife laptop's is online because my TV server is a file server too.

    This isn't what I was looking for. Because this means TV-Server stays awake when TV is on, even when TV is not connected for streaming.
    But if I don't find a soution I will use it as an workaround.

    Thank you for helping and explaining.
