    Re: SleepControl plugin for MediaPortal v0.9.6

    Hello,

    azzuro: Thanks for this hint, I've forgot this in the hectic of last days. I'll include your translation (thank you!) into future versions.



    vrm42: I don't know, how SleepControl could fix problems of other plugins. Because of this I'm not able to create workarounds or fixes, until I have internal source or workflow related information for minidisplay. Sorry.

    Cheers, Micropolis

    No need to fix problems of other plugins. I just said that it would be nice if Sleepcontrol could shut down the computer just the way as MePo itself does. Ok, I don't know how to do that, so my best guess is: if you would see how Sleepcontrol could make Minidisplay plugin to get into standby state before your plugin actually make computer to shut down - that would be awesome.
    Now I wake up every morning only to see that my VFD is just freezed-in its last state - instead of showing date and time.
    Looks like plugin does force shutdown instead of quit MePo and execute shutdown process.

    I hope I was clear :)

    Hello vrm42,

    SleepControl use the same WindowsController routines from MediaPortal.

    I don't have any details about your current configuration, but maybe the option "force selected mode" can help you. Please switch off this and SleepControl (and the whole operating system) wait until all services and programs are exited succesfully.
    If this also don't fix your issue, please use the trigger mode, select "Start process" and execute a self defined batch here.

    Cheers, Micropolis

    Re: SleepControl plugin for MediaPortal v0.9.6

    Well, when I quit MP with remote or select the exit from the menu, everything's fine.
    But when SC shuts down the computer, VFD freezes into its last state.
    This didn't occur prior to MP 1.2b.

    With taskkill and shutdown commands I end up with the same result as with SC.

    I'm trying to find a way to control vfd by command line...

    EDIT

    Wow, 101% success :) Now I get my VFD blank before shutdown.

    Code (Text):
    1. taskkill /f /im mediaportal.exe
    2. start "" "%programfiles%"\lcdsmartie\lcdsmartie.exe
    3. shutdown -s -f -t 5
    Trigger mode is awesome! :)

    AW: SleepControl plugin for MediaPortal v0.9.6

    Hi,
    gread Plugin. Thanks a lot for it. Works like a charm, but after I copy the sleepcontrol.xml to the blue default wide skin folder I see the controls on a black page. Seems like styles are lost and just the menue on the left has some blue boarders.

    Any ideas?

    TIA

    Hello Holzi,

    Done, you can find updated libraries here.

    @items: I must take a deeper look here, please give me some time, thanks.

    Cheers, Micropolis
