Can you see the Media Center Tray Applet in the taskbar all the time or does it disappear after a while?

If it disappears, it may be that the startup shortcut is missing or disabled.

Alhough WMC kicks off the process, it gets shut down after a while.

However the green button on the remote needs it running even when WMC isn't. The workaround is a switch (surviveehschedtermination) in the startup shortcut that keeps it running.
