I've installed this app hoping that it could solve my problems when resuming after my system going to sleep mode. I'm running XBMC software and my wireless keyboard stops working after sleep mode. Well, it works, but special keys, like volume, green button, etc. doesn't work. It works fine before going into sleep mode S3. How can i identify the problem? blink

Once again a new beta: 0.9.101.

I have tried to address most of your comments from the 0.9.100 thread.

- Fixed not running in RPD session
- Removed "Failed to meet unblank requirements" message
- Now using the OS dialog for autologon configuration (Vista/W7)
- Option to not suspend when eHome is not in front
   prevents sleep when running other programs (PowerDVD???)
- Option to not sleep when eHome is not full screen
   can also be used to prevent sleep when scanning for channels and leaving the system alone.
- RunOnDisplayOn and RunOnDisplayOf options   

Version 0.9.101 has some issues on Windows 7 x64, they should be fixed in 0.9.102

Download from here: mst0.9.102.exe.

Please keep the experiences comming.

Have fun with this version,

Herman


You still have it set to install for all users.  Can you have an option somewhere to install for 'current user only' or 'all users'?
Took me a while to figure out my problem in Win 7 with remote desktop hacks that were logged in!

I have these two items in a batch file which will run when resuming from standby.

"MC-WOL 90:E6:BA:3A:E1:B6
C:\Windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe"

The first command does nothing and the the second line works when resuming from standby.
When I run that same batch myself then the first command line is working also.

My question is why won't the first command line do nothing when it's running by mst?

Weird.   0.9.102 ordered my system into standby while 4 recordings where happening.   I can see the four recordings were cut short in MCE and I can also see a windows event log saying:

"The system is entering sleep.

Sleep Reason: Application API"

Then when I switch to the MST log, I have these entries at the exact same timestamp:

***added per edit below***

Tue 05 Apr 2011 10:24:50.718 - PBT_APMSUSPEND done (8315ms)

The MST log seems to show that MST thinks there were zero recordings happening, but that was not true.   If it matters I am using a Ceton Infinitv (cablecard) setup for my recordings...

EDIT:   I just added the preceeding 3 MST logs to the above list.   Note that 20 minutes before the erronious standby, a media center update had completed and the 4 recordings were ongoing at that time (confirmed via MCE interface).   Not sure it is related, but I suspect it is...   My MST Idle timeout is set for 20 min.   I'm on x64, if it matters.

EDIT2:   This problem has not occured again.   Perhaps it was a fluke...   I'll report back if it reoccurs.

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum, but have used MST.
Originally I installed the "stable version", but later upgraded to 102.

The 102 beta has given me problems on my Win7 (32 bit) PC, as it shut down the PC after the pre-set idle time-out, in the middle of a scheduled recording.
Apparently, 102 is not as good as detecting idle/busy as the old MST release is!?

I have a wireless keyboard/trackball, and the trackball has an offset issue, so it occasionally moves the pouse pointer.
I have set MST to ignore user input, but I have experienced that MST just writes Idle Detect suspended (or similar), and never shutting down the PC.

For now, I have returned to the old "stable" release on SlickSolutions web page.

Ther new features are cool, but they do not work reliable on my PC.

Finally, I cannot get the auto-reboot thing to work.
No matter which user rights I use on my PC, all bullet points (options) are greyed out in MST 102. Any ideas?

Hi all,

I have been a big fan of MCE Standby tool for a long time, I now run windows 7 x64 ultimate.

I was wondering if there is currently a x64 build of this wonderful tool?

The problem that i have is that the very useful button "Show sleep blockers" reports:

DISPLAY:
None.

SYSTEM:
[DRIVER] ?
repeat above line x100 or so

AWAYMODE:
None.

I was getting better result in a elevated cmd prompt.

I have made my own program* that runs the powercfg with the -requests argument, and I was getting the same result as the MCE standby tool, until I compiled it for the x64 architecture.

PS: I was wondering if Herman would be so kind as to email me the code or some hints to behind the scenes workings of the "One or more programs(s) require(s) the system/display: Yes/No"  *?

* for a project that I am currently working on that prevents standby when your traffic speed on a selected network adapter are above a user configurable threshold.

Edit: (alpha now available http://sourceforge.net/projects/coffee-sc/)

stevencole,
Your tool is awesome, been hoping something like this would be added to StandbyTool.

Maybe Herman and you could work together to add this most excellent feature to an already excellent programs.

Thanks to the both of you

Don't know where else to post this, but I found that my logitech mouse, microsoft keyboard, and MCE IR receiver when plugged into certain USB ports causes my computer to wake immediately after sleeping (S3).  I have an Abit IC7-G and the USB ports underneath the onboard ethernet controller causes the computer to immediately wake.  In Windows Event Viewer, the "Power-Troubleshooter" message said "Wake Source: Unknown", which I've since found to mean some USB device woke the computer.  I thought some noise from the ethernet port was triggering the wake event, but unplugging the ethernet cable yields the same results; I haven't tried disabling the ethernet port.

Took me forever to figure this out, as the "immediate wake" problem would come and go with seemingly no change on my part.  I began by disabling all USB devices' ability to wake the computer through Device Manager (the Devices tab in this version of the MST beta is broken).  After all devices were disabled, I knew something was different because I certainly had used my IR receiver to wake the computer before.  After moving the devices to another USB controller (verified through Device Manager, View by Connection), I was able to re-enable the device's ability to wake from sleep.

Hope this helps someone else. Grin

I'm new to this software but so far it's proved the most useful tool I found to help me try to work out what is preventing a Windows 2003 R2 server from entering standby - thank you.

However I do have a number of questions/problems:

    - On the Windows Idle tab: I keep seeing "One or more programmes or services requires the system" but when I press the "Show Sleep Blockers" button I get a "not supported under this OS or insufficient admin rights error".  Should this work under Windows 2003 R2?  If not how do I identify what program/service is keeping the machine awake?
    - In the log file:  How do I interpret the log file particularly the "StayAwakeConditions" and the line of 1 and 0's returned at the end of a resume?
    - On the Devices tab: Refreshing the list of devices doesn't work ("invalid parameters try /? for help") - I think this is because powercfg.exe in Windows 2003 doesn't quite support all the commandline switches that it does under Windows XP (despite what some articles say)?  If you run the Windows XP executable instead it appears to work however...

Regards

I recently installed Recorded TV HD. Any idea how can I jump to that home screen using MCE Standby Tool after my HTPC reboot/wakes up?

Configure -> eHome -> Star Page, I only have the native Recorded TV page for me to choose. Is there a way I can insert or choose other than then native MCE screen to jump to?

Thank you!

Hi Herman,

Thank you for all your efforts developing this great tool.  I have spent two or three weeks trying to resolve my standby issues and had no joy until I came upon this website and your tool. 

I did use powercfg to determine what was preventing the computer to go into sleep, and finally did manage to manually and automatically get my computer into sleep mode.

The part that stumped me though was that while I could wake the computer with my keyboard, as soon as the computer was up, the keyboard and most of my other USB devices were unresponsive.  Until that is, I came across your tool.

So thanks again, I will be making a donation to you for your efforts which directly led to a reduction in my stress level and a solution to this problem.

Rick
