    When using the client and server on a network environment, when putting the client to sleep the server doesn't stop timeshifting and keeps the tuner associated with the machine. In cases where more than one machine access the same server, a card might not be available to other machines even if one machine is sleeping.

    Steps to reproduce:
    - Start watching TV on Client (eg: Client1).
    - At the server, open the SetupTV application. Notice that at least one of the tuners is assigned to Client1 and the status is timeshifting.
    - It should also appear in the Streaming list.
    - At Client1, press the suspend button (Ex: Power button on MCE remote. Used this one). System should suspend.
    - Check the SetupTV application again at the server. Card is still associated to Client1 and still timeshifting, even after suspending.
    - Client doesn't appears in the Streaming list anymore, even with tuner still locked and timeshifting active.

    This behavior is always reproducible.

    Expected behavior: Tuner should be released and timeshifting should stop, or at least the bahavior should be configurable (ex: Could be an option of always keeping a card associated with a client or not).

    I'll be attaching logs in the coming days. I'am traveling now and can't access the server to reproduce the error and generate the logs.

    I would expect there to be a timeout period that will disconnect a client if they disappear for too long, are you sure you don't just have to wait longer (I didn't test this so you may be right)
