Bit confused now as I don't seem to be able to load any of the MST versions on Win7. But I do see that others are talking of their problems with Win7. I imagined there would be a "hidden" version that was made available to those who made donations as reasonably expected by yourself, but I can't find out how to access the same despite having made a donation.

I am sorry, there is no top secrect hidden limited edition Wink.
You can find the link to the Windows 7 compatible 0.9.098 version here.

It works for me, this link points to the post where you can find the link to the executable (called mst09098.exe).

I donwloaded this tool to check if it helps me solve one small issue I have.

My system (Win 7 Pro 32bit) suspends fine. My (USB wireless) mouse resumes the sytem fine when I move it.
My remote (Harmony One emulating a MCE keyboard) only wakes up the system when I send the "Power Toogle" command.

I'd expect that any keypress would wake up the system (BIOS allows it, MST reports that eHome IR receiver is allowed to wake up the system)

What configuration / setting could I check/mark/unmark to allow any key press to wake up the system? Is the "Vista remote idle fix" intended to solve this kind of problems?

Thanks

Thanks for this great application! I just paypal'd a donation.

I am using 0.9.098 successfully on Windows 7 Home Premium, and the only problem that I am having is related the automatic backups triggered by my Windows Home Server.  The backup starts, and MCE Standby Tool correctly shows "One or more programs requires the system - YES", but the "Time remaining until suspend" continues to countdown.  The PC then suspends when the count reaches zero, before that backup completes.  Since MCE Standby Tool detects that system resources are being used by the WHS connector, is there any way for the application to prevent standby from occuring until after the backup is complete and the PC goes back to completely idle?

Thanks...

Thanks for the donation.

For now just remove the "Ignore applications that prevent suspend" check, dedicated WHS support will be added in some future version (don't expect it soon).

Here is my problem.  I wonder if this tool will help me.

Win 7 x64 7600.  It goes in and out of S3 fine by the remote's power button, when I test it.  But after setting the system to 45 minute standby timeout, it seems the problems happen.  Specifically, it seems unwilling to go to sleep.  This leads to a secondary problem which may be related, discovered by my wife  Roll Eyes
If you come back to the machine after hours of inactivity, it is awake, as I described.  As a test to duplicate what I think my wife is doing, I turned on the TV, noticed that it was in the Win 7 screensaver, then pressed power anyway.  It went to sleep.  When I pressed power, it woke up and a DVD resumed.  I had audio but a black TV (component video out via an ATI HD4670).  I could see the mouse cursor but no amount of clicking or remote button pressing gave me video.  The DVD continued to play.  Thinking of what my wife would do, I pressed power AGAIN, at which point it tried to go to sleep, but ended up with the power light blinking, but the system still on (S1? invalid state?).  At this point there was nothing to do but force the system to shut down by holding the power button.

What I need to do is turn off the 45 minute S3 timer and do everything I did above, and see if it behaves the same way.

I removed that check, and in fact the system woke up and successfully completed the backup.  Unfortunately, it never went back to sleep.  I run a couple of other background applications related to the dual displays in my Media Center PC, and I guess that one of those prevented the system from going back into suspend.  Since this PC does not change very frequently (dedicated MCE PC), I think for now I will just do ocassional manual backups and leave the "Ignore applications that prevent suspend" checked.  With that checked, everything worked perfectly except for the automatic backups.  Let me know if you get to a point where you want someone to test the Windows Home Server support.

Thanks...John

I must admit, I find it confusing trying to find the latest version...

@Kevm14 - no, it doesn't work like that, Windows has only ever woken when you press the Power button.  Any key press does not wake it up.

Hi there, i've got a problem using win7 and mst 0.9.098.


The pc has no problem to go into s3 suspend. Waking up is a bigger problem. Actually, there are a few problems that occur:

-sometimes i got the error "no tuner available. An other application is using the tuner ....etc"
-sometimes it starts tv but my floppydtv card isn't detected so mce uses the hybrid hauppauge
-sometimes i'm just lef in a black screen with mousepointer and in the bottomleft corner the mce logo.
-sometimes mce just freezes and the system crashes in a black screen. Left with rebooting als only option.

Sometimes I also get the error: 'no graphics driver found'. I upgraded my radeon hd 3200 and that problem seems fine now.

How do I make my pc wake up and start mce with live tv using mst0.9.098?? Which options should I choose? Are those recognizable errors?
I'm very enthousiastic about the tool, but it gives me tons of problems now....  wacko My girlfriend is loosing her patience with my HTPC so I hope I can fix this soon, before she throws the whole thing out  ohmy

Hi Herman, thanks again for your help.

I did the following things to get rid of the problems:
-installed Ati catalyst 9.8 instead of 9.10
-configured mst, that it doesn't stop ehome at suspend
-installed the legacy firewire driver in windows

This actions caused me at first a BSOD  Shocked, but after a reboot in safemode, it seems to work. I'm going to try this configuration for a few days so it can be tested by the real demanding user: my girlfriend!

Thanks so far for your help. I'll keep you posted.

Hi guys,

I am running the Windows 7 compatible 0.9.098 version, however, the reboot options are all blacked out!
Has anyone else had this issue, or know how I could resolve it?

(Screen dump is included!)

Thanks

Hi there- compliments for a great piece of software that has saved a lot of electricity over the years!

I've upgraded to Win7 and one of my desktops won't behave anymore - it wakes up just under 1 minute after going to sleep.

I can't figure it out - there is something waking it up, and I've fiddled with only allowing the mouse to be the trigger, enable/disable fastr usb resume and selective usb resume... nothing changes.

Any suggestions before I start unplugging USB devices one by one Sad

Cheers,

I have figured out which device is the problem - it's my ShuttleProV2 (Countour Designs) - a jog dial that's really useful for audio editing. The device "jogs" windows every 3 seconds and is preventing sleep.

I can leave it unplugged while not using it for the time being.

Is there any thought on adding a feature to MST that could prevent a device from doing this? I realize that's a little Rube Goldberg-esque, but worthwile to ask!

Cheers,
MJ
