    Right now, if you exit the GUI of MediaPortal, the PowerScheduler will shutdown the PC after x Minutes, which is not desirable imho. Is there a way to prevent Standby when exiting the GUI? If not... I think that should be implemented ;)

    If singleseat then disable the "shutdown server after being idle xxx minutes" in TVServer\plugins\powerscheduler

    Personally prefer this left on, and use the processes tab to add programs running that will stop system standby, ie TMPEnc xpress whilst recoding video, firefox for internet, Azurues for any downloads.

    Yep, I already added FireFox and Media Player Classic for example.

    Ah, I see, so it's actually the server causing the standby in this case... and MediaPortal itself won't go into standby, when exiting the GUI? Are there any drawbacks on disabling the idle timer of the powerscheduler in the TVserver (in singleseat)?

    Actually, I think I'm experiencing the same issue - when I tick the "shutdown server after being idle xxx minutes" off, the machine doesn't go to sleep at all.
    I have set the client plugin to two minutes in order to be certain that it's only when MediaPortal is running, the system will suspend.

    It seems that when you uncheck the TVserver shutdown-checkbox, the whole suspend-feature gets disabled, instead of listening to the client plugin.
    Am I wrong?

    I'm running the RC1 refresh edition, if that's any help.

    I think there are so many possible variations on this, remember most people have a remote with a standby button configured, so this is by far a very used feature.

    But you do need these plugins enabled to allow for recordings to be done.

    Ideal world, the detect keyboard\mouse input with Vista, being fixed would resolve this.
