    When I'm watching a movie, remote functions normally for awhile (I can press Menu, skip, etc.) and then it stops responding. I can still hear clicking on the TV when I press buttons on the remote. Not even the wireless keyboard keys will make it respond.

    When I hit Alt-Tab on the keyboard I can see the other programs that are running but I cannot switch to them. Ultimately Alt-F4 will kill MP but sometimes even that doesn't work and I have to reboot.

    I am running MPTray, could that be the problem? Not sure why it would be working for awhile and then stop.
