'Win Idle' page,  'Time remaining until suspend'.  There is a count down then when it should sleep it just says Disabled where the timer was.

OK, this page is there mend to debug the idle detection of Windows itself, not to configure it!

Use the power options from the control panel to enable this detection.

The MST idle detection can be configured through the "idle" an "Auto task" tabs.

Thanks Hveijk,
But all setting are set to sleep and override anything stopping it, but it will not sleep after the timer has run out.

It's DVBLink software stopping sleep.  Wish they would sort out their software and I wouldn't need to hassle you guys.

I've noticed that my machine running RC Win7 there is 'Processor Power Management' under advance power management and on my machine running Retail Win7 it is not there.

Anyhow thanks for any help specool

DVBLink shouldn't stop the system from going to sleep with the 'Ignore applications [...]' option enabled. It certainly doesn't stop it here, and I know several other installations where MST can put a DVBLink system to sleep.

The new DVBLink TvSource v2 (beta) has solved this problem anyway. It may be worth to upgrade if you think the problem is caused by DVBLink.

Hi Herman,

running v98 and no propblems with the FloppyDTV-S2 TV card. So everything is fine from that end.

One thing I noticed is the following:

Under VISTA, MST would wake the system for a recording and the monitor would display whatever is on there. After a short while the monitor timeout would kick in and switch the monitor off (no backlight). That's what I want because it saves maximum energy.

Under Win7, with version 98 MST displays a "black screen" when it wakes the system for a recording. The issue (at least for me) is, that the system never reaches the monitor timeout and the backlight stays on.

Can I configure this to show the previous behaviour?

Thanks, Georg

Just a note for everyone who is waiting for support for Totalmedia Theatre or PowerDVD, so that the MST Standby Tool does not set the system to standby, here is a fairly simple workaround to at least watch the movies without having to go into MST settings, so you can stay on the couch smile :

(optional for extra simpleness):
Download Media Center Studio at http://adventmediacenter.com/, install it and run it (exit Media center for this).
Go to the "Start Menu" tab.
At the bottom of the window there is an "Entry Points" line which you can open with the down arrow, do this.
Four all four items there that are from Arcsoft (you can see by the logo), or if you have PowerDVD, it's items there:
    Double-click to open the item in a tab
    In the field "When launched, do the following:", set the option to "Pause the currently playing media"
    Save the item using the small disk item in the top toolbar, and close the tab
When all items are done, save the main menu using the save icon in the toolbar again, and close Media Center Studio.


Now, before you go and watch a Blu-ray or any other movie using TMT or PDVD:
Start any MediaCenter item, you can choose a music song, start a photo slideshow, go into Live TV or play a recorded TV, start a video, anything
(If you HAVEN'T done the steps above, pause the playback.)
Switch to the main menu (DON'T *STOP* what you're playing, it should still be in the 'Now Playing' line).
Start PowerDVD/TMT, either by it's menu icon, or by inserting a disc. (If you have done the above steps, the playback in the background will automatically pause, so sound and CPU use will stop for you.)

(background:) Since the playback of whatever you started will now be paused, MST will see Mediacenter as not idle, and it will not put your HTPC to standby.

When you're finished with your movie, don't forget to just stop whatever you started in mediacenter before the movie, so that the system will automatically standby again.

Hope it can help someone! (at least a little).

Selcal,
Thanks for the tip...  Interestingly enough, I can watch a full movie with Powerdvd without this tip and the system does not go into sleep.
However, when I use the AutoRip plugin ( see Green Button plugins ), it will go into sleep unless I do something.  I will try your tip while using AutoRip and report back.

Thanks

Hello,

I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR 1800 tuner and an ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO motherboard running Windows 7.  When the computer first starts up, everything works as expected, but after the computer wakes from sleeping, I get a "No TV Signal" message when trying to view any channel.  I downloaded your program, but couldn't find any settings that seemed to make a difference.  In my BIOS, I have my power settings at S3.  Any ideas what I might try?

Thanks!

Hi Herman,

thanks a lot for the W7 beta, I have been a fan of MST (and a donator) since the Vista times. One thing I noticed after a few months of testing v0.9.098: whilst waking up for a recording and going back to sleep afterwards works perfectly, pressing standby during an ongoing recording does not lead to the machine going into standby after the recording is finished (the screen goes black and sound goes mute presumably going into away mode, but this stays). I am now playing with the user idle setting, but this is something that definately worked in Vista - maybe you have time to correct this for the next version...

The only other problem I had was pressing the green button whilst a scheduled recording was going on (ie waking up for the recording). The screen stayed black and I could not continue in Media Center (either I had to reset the computer or wait for the recording to finish).

thanks again, hope to see a final release soon and keep up the good work,
KleMC
