    I do not remember what was the last state when I stopped working on this. Is there any bug or missing feature?

    let me try to help you for restore your memory :p


    1. Rename the ZIP file
    my patch
    0001-rename-the-zip-name.patch

    From the post n° 162 https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/watchdog-improvements.118979/page-17#post-1116262
    2. Add more Power Management

    0001-Add-Shutdown-Power-Off-action-to-TVserver.patch

    3. Add option for select from where we want collect logs. ( only design change )
    0001-Collecting-logs-source.patch


    4. Use WOL if we run Watchdog on client, and we want TV logs ( if the server is offline)
    no patch from me.. too hard for me :(
    WOL is send during the collect of logs ( if server is offline, with an timeout, who can be set manually and saved )

    Can somebody please explain the purpose of this change?

    1. What is the difference between "shutdown" and "power off"?
    2. Please use proper product names. "TvServer" should be replaced with "TV Server".

    Why is this option needed?

    this one is more, for when you have multi seat, and don't neek to take logs from TV server if not needed. like MP plugin or MP GUI itself.

    Power Off - Shuts down the computer and turns off the power (if supported by the computer in question).

    Shutdown - Shuts down the computer to a point where it is safe to turn off the power. (All file buffers are flushed to disk, and all running processes are stopped.) Users see the message, It is now safe to turn off your computer.

    During shutdown the system sends a message to each running application. The applications perform any cleanup while processing the message and return True to indicate that they can be terminated.

    Okay, in my opinion this is not a good idea. People already get confused about which option to use. Another choice will be even more confusing. Is it possible to always grab all log files?

    I can guarantee this will be confusing. It also seems like a security concern to be providing a service that enables remote reboot/shutdown without user interaction. For this reason I am not in favour of including any of the power options.

    That's fine, but why use "MP" and "TVE"? New users will not know what they are. Please use full product names for clarity.

    for now, it's set like this, the option, is not implemented yet.

    in my opinion, i dislike because the name too long.

    i'm not sure, if both of this function is good to keep, maybe only one can be really use.

    but this idea, is more for my use :
    i do'nt have screen/keyboard/mouse on my TVE server. so, i need to connect to him with RDP. with this no need, when i test, i can send the computer to sleep ( ah, @regeszter : i have forget to add the sleep function, can you ? )
