I have two Win7 Media Center machines with tuners and a WHS (Windows Home Server).  I use the archive function of the WHS to copy recorded programs to the WHS Recorded TV folder so that either machine can see programs recorded by the other machine.  While the programs are recording on the individual machines, I use Show Analyzer to scan them for commercials and produce the commercial information (*.xml) file which is saved in the Public folder on the WHS (again so either machine can access the commercials file during playback.)

I put an entry in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Herman van Eijk\MceStandbyTool\Non Idle Applications for the ShowAnalyzerEngine.exe and when I view the log files it looks like MST is recognizing it ok.  Here is a section of the log file.

Tue 24 Aug 2010 16:53:37.436 - AwakeState: AS_MEDIACENTER

Tue 24 Aug 2010 16:58:02.238 - StayAwakeConditions: 0001C709 (00000200)

Tue 24 Aug 2010 16:58:41.660 - StayAwakeConditions: 0001DF09 (00001800)

One problem I have is that with the MST tool open, ShowAnalyzerEngine doesn't show as one of the "Sleep Stoppers" when you press the "Show Sleep Stoppers" button on the Windows Idle tab of MST.

The second problem I have is that although the Windows.Home.Server.Archive.Transfer.Service does show as a "Sleep Stopper" when you press the button, it apparently doesn't stop the computer from going to sleep,

On the following log a recording was started at 16:07 which ended at 16:33. As you can see the machine entered standby at 16:33:00.  I know the Archive Service was running at the time because the wtv-temp file that it creates
on the WHS while transferring was there but it looks like only about one-third the file was transferred.  Since the Archive Program is a Service and is always running, I can't add it to the idle applications because it runs
continiously.  Any suggestions on how to solve the problem or why the Archive Service isn't keeping MST from entering standby would be appreciated.

Use the folder mentioned in the first post to add bit torrent to the apps that prevent standby.  I added utorrent.exe and it works perfect.   Just be sure to tell your torrent application to exit when done, and the computer will then begin to sleep normally.

I have two machines running Win 7 MCE with the latest beta MST,  Below is a log from one of the machines which looks to have been awake since 13:23 yesterday.  Is there any way to tell what programs kept the computer from going to sleep?

Hi all,

First, I appreciate the software, and all the ideas you put into it !

I've installed the beta 0.9.100, and run into some issues.

The program seems to work (the PC goes to sleep, resume ehome at wake up, etc..), and resides in the tray.

But I can't get the configuration app to open : right click, menu "configure" ---> nothing happens.

I use a french Vista 32 ultimate, MS security essentials, and used before the 0.9.094 without any glitches

Thanks in advance for any help

I've found that my problem is only related to remote desktop :

No problem if I use the regular console (Kb, Ms and display).

But the problem occurs (no reaction to the right menu "configure") if I access the machine with windows remote desktop (which is the usual way for me).

NB : there was no problem with the previous version, this is new to the 0.9.100.

That's not a big deal, just wanted to let you know.

Hi,

THANK YOU for this GREAT tool! I LOVE IT!

I have a quick question regarding system idleness... my computer won't go to sleep automatically, and MST has the following to say under "sleep blockers":

DISPLAY:
None.

SYSTEM:
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J
[DRIVER] J

AWAYMODE:
None.

I have removed the only driver I could find starting with a "J", but the issue is still present. Can someone please assist me in identifying the offending driver so I can replace/update/remove it?

Also, can you please post which command line MST is passing to powercfg.exe to gather the above info?

Thanks in advance!

Is it possible to get http://www.mediabrowser.tv/ started after a resume?

I see there is a choise of extensibility application in the tab Ehome but it has no further configuration of choosing a plugin.

I'm occasionally getting a dialog box saying "Failed to meet unblank requirements".   
Since I have the same problem i decided to use the "just navigate to the start page" function (which is the tv guide in my case).
Unfortunately that does not work very reliably (approximately 4 out of 10 times).
Is there a way to improve this charcteristic? Either the "restart every time" or the "navigate to the startpage" function?
I'm using Windows 7 in the 64 bit version.

Thanks in advance

With the new improvements, is there a way to have the Netflix plugin prevent standby?  As mentioned here:

For me, it worked to add "ehexthost32.exe" to the idle apps watchlist that is mentioned in the first post.

As I understand it, this message is caused when media center does not exit in time when going into standby.   It is not affected by the two options you mention.    I have not been able to get my setup to reliably exit in time for standby, so I get the message 1/4 time I resume from standby.   An option to surpress the message box would be nice.

I also get this "failed to meet unbank requirements" - Mediaportal will load ok but then the screen will go blank for quiet a few seconds then this error will come up which needs a click on OK to remove.

How can it be stopped please?

I'm a little confuse regarding the registry entries.

What is the right way to create this registry for "Non Idle Applications"

this way? in this case should the value be a REG_SZ or REG_MULTI_SZ?
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Herman van Eijk\MceStandbyTool]
"Non Idle Applications"="ManagementConsole.exe"

or this?
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Herman van Eijk\MceStandbyTool\Non Idle Applications]
"acronis"="ManagementConsole.exe"


And what will be the correct sintax for more than one application?


Thank you.

Attached is what my reg settings look like.   I added Netflix and uTorrent and it works fine.

Hi,
for some reason Standby Tool puts Win 7 x64 to sleep when I'm connected using Media Center Extender. I had the "Force Away mode when extender is in use enabled", which I didn't have earlier (just tried to enable it without any reason). Will now try without it if it will still go to standby.
