How about a Windows 7 modified version just for those who have donated? I'd really love to use full functionality in Win 7.

Thanks for showing your appreciation.

I have made Windows 7 enabled versions of MST and LEDSdriver. No Windows 7 specific features yet, just removed the block.

Unfortunately I did not have the time to fully test them yet (my main HTPC is still running Vista).

Since the latest builds of W7 are very usable for the daring among us I do no longer want to keep them from you:

     ledsdriver09018.exe (removed, there is a newer version on the SlickSolutions website.

     mst09095.exe (removed it, a new version can be found further in the thread)

Pleas let me know how well they do.

I tried the windows 7 version.  Initially I wasn't able to open the configuration from the task bar, I had to go into program files and run as administrator.  After that it ran just fine.

Although the program seems to be running, it doesn't seem to do anything to put my computer into sleep mode.  I have it to go into S3 but doesn't seem to ever put the computer to sleep... Maybe something I am doing?

If I have the MCE Standby tool pulled up (vs running in background) it works fine... but when it's running in the taskbar it won't shut down the computer.  I am guessing this has something to do with the fact that when I do open the config from the taskbar it asks me "do you want to allow the following unsigned program to...blah blah blah"  The User account control features are probably preventing it from working completely.  Just my guess though.


Also, even though I have it set to start media center always, it won't.  Even on reboot Media center used to start, now it won't.

Anyway, this is just what I am experiencing... could totally be just my system or setup.

Thanks!

I too can't get W7 to go to S3.  I have noticed that the Last User Input counter under the IDLE never changes from Zero - The Media Centre counter works OK but the LUI is always zero.  My W7 media install is pretty well finished except for this power issue, so any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

I still use Vista but read about Windows 7 in the new C'T-magazine and there is short passage about the energy configuration in Windows 7. It says and I quote:

There is a new tool in Windows 7, called Power Config, which helps to configurate your computer as energy efficient as possible and helps to track down problems. Start the Command Prompt as Administrator type the command: powercfg /energy The program will monitor your computer for a minute and produces a HTML-page with info. This will show which hardware refreign the PC from going to S3-mode or which energy-settings are more efficient.

Maybe you all already know this or maybe it won't help but I thought I had to share this.

It seems like the problem is one of your USB devices or the USB driver. Try disconnecting all USB devices(even your IR-receiver) and enter sleep again. When this works it's one of your devices, if it doesn't it's probably your USB driver or USB-BIOS settings. Did you mark the "Disable selective USB suspend" in the MCE Standby Tool? If you did you were right about MCE Standby Tool doing nothing to put your computer in to sleep.
Did you turn of UAC?

Maybe I will disable UAC first...  it seems to work when running maxmized but not when minimized in the system tray (or whatever the win7 term is)  I hate to disable UAC though... is there another way to give it full access?

Strange, I love to disable UAC! If you have a up to date virus-scanner and a good spyware removal tool disabling UAC shouldn't be a problem.

Ok, preliminary testing seems like it's working now.

One of the issues I was running into is that in Windows 7 it defaults to manage and wake up using LAN.  I shut that off and lowered UAC to off and it works... I still couldn't get media center to startup on a reboot (I selected it in standby tool and in media center general).  A quick shortcut pasted in startup solved that issue.

I will test like this for a while and see what happens.  Not sure why MCE standby tool is preventing Media Center from starting up on restart w/o putting the shortcut in start programs but I can certainly live with that.

Once I see it's working I probably will turn UAC back on to see if that breaks it... (in an ideal world I wouldn't have messed with two different things at once to get it working (LAN power config and UAC) but I got really tired of messing with it and used a shotgun approach...  Maybe someone else has a different result.

Thanks!

Hi,
I have followed the suggestions in this post - my observation that the Idle timer doesn't update isn't a bug - I disabled the UAC, network and all USB - I got the Idle timer to start, when it reached the shutdown time, it went to S3 - MAGIC!  I re-enabled the devices one at a time - I got the network back, UAC and Ehome USB receiver - all OK - add in the USB Keyboard & Mouse (Microsoft Wireless 3000) and the system won't sleep (Idle counter won't start counting) remove the usb Keyb/Mouse and it starts counting and shuts down OK.  I have reported this to M$. I will post their reply.

Thanks

Hi Herman,

I've found on Windows 7, that using the version 0.9.095, on the Windows idle tab, its not possible to increase the max idleness allowed from 0%.

Also, on the devices tab, pressing refresh doesn't appear to return a list of usb devices attached.

Thanks

Hi Herman,

sorry, found a problem with your latest beta application - when using Windows 7 Media Center, and the application is running, but no user input is being performed, the counter for Media Center remains at 0:00, whereas the user input is being correctly reported - unfortunately this means, that if MC is running when then pc resumes, it never goes back to sleep  Shocked

Let me know if you would like a log file uploading to show this problem?

Thanks

Hi Herman,

I've noticed recently, that when the pc is already resumed, say for a recording, mst blanker is running, and I can't come out of it - the only method I've got of being able to get back to my desktop or MC, is to kill mst  Huh

Thanks

Sparky, are you using build 7100 when this happens, or is it an earlier build? I just installed 7100, and this is happening. Everything worked perfectly in build 7000, but now it gets stuck on autoresume. It detects a user input, but doesn't respond to it at all.
