WMC no longer sleeps after recordings (1.1.19)

Post#1 » Tue May 01, 2018 12:10 pm


Do I correctly recall an earlier issue where EPG123 modified the power plan and the PC wasn't going back to sleep successfully? I believe that's been happening to mine for a while now, but I'm not sure I can peg it to a particular release of EPG123.

Is it possible that the "no-sleep" bug has returned? Does EPG123 have to modify the power plan at all? IDK about anyone else, but mine's set to 30 minutes, which is more than enough time for EPG123 to do its business since I don't believe WMC sleeps immediately after a recording finishes.

My HTPC has an Intel wireless card that goes out to my router. Occasionally a Windows update will change the setting that tells the computer NOT to wake up when it periodical looks for a sugar. I just have to go into the device manager and reset it.

That's the only glitch I have observed. EPG123 works fine and the PC goes to sleep after the daily update.

Whats your sleep setting in the power control panel? If it's set to "never", well, it will never sleep.

Also, from a CMD prompt type "powercfg -requests" and it should say what's keeping it awake.
