    since the option to restart MePo after resume from standby has been removed, I have the problem that MePo loses focus when the HTPC im coming back from standby. I was not able so far to nail down the program that is stealing focus (if anyone has another hint except from taskmanager and pushing alt-f4 after resume....ideas are welcome).

    Yes, there's an option to set Mepo to be always in front. But that's not a real solution as it would interfere with e.g. starting Steam client, browser etc from within MePo.

    So, simple suggestion would be to add an option to regain focus x seconds after standby.

    If anyone knows external tools/addins to automatically switch focus to MePo after resume or if there's an addon that reenables thge "restart on resume"-feature, It'd be appreciated.
