    OK - I have reported this in the 1.4 release foum and now when I decided to go for 1.4 it is still an issue (honestly - I get the feeling there is not much interest in looking after this ...)

    In the previous versions of MP the workaround (as the problem was always present) was to set "restart MP after resume" - this option is now gone. The result is that when you send teh PC to sleep during watching TV it comes up with the last Picture and that's it - you need to kill MP and restart the machine - otherwise MP will even stuck when starting again with "loading Plugins".

    As there is no Wartchdog capable of catching the isses (in fact MP seems to run in teh background - I can see filling the logs with update tasks) but it is not responsive.

    From my point there are two ways to approach this:

    - give back the restart after resume
    - manage for MP to properly shut don teh stream / player or whatever is responsible to make MOP stucjk when waking it up again

    The attached Logs are all I have fro now - if there is any feedback I'm more than happy to provide whatever it takes.

    I'm realy unhappy - using MP since Years and was quite happy with 1.3 - and got fooled again with enhances and fixes when doing an upgrade now sitting with a not worjking system again.

    Hm - made jsut a test and stop playback before sending teh system to stanby - same result - last active window when resuming and unresponsive system.

    OK - cool - so there is work done behind teh scenes - THX scythe42 for this - vbut what is teh help now? Can a patch be distributet which gives back teh restart after resume functionality?

    And - how can I provide logs for this - when havin an unresponsive system I can Kill it and watchdog is going to write logs - but will this help?

    THX - this is the next I will try :) - was playing around with taskkill before but didn't spend much time in finding the correct parameter - the frustration about this whole MP disaster blocked me ;)

    No problem launch it with a sheduled task and make sure the shedule task is set to only run when user is logged in otherwise there is a bug in windows that stops it from running ;)
