Has anyone ever figured out how much leaving on a PC for a year (not
with screen). I was under the impression that mine cost me under 25 UK
pounds a year.. or as a comparsion.... less than 10 pints of beer per
year.

Make sure that the URL ends in ".html". If you have word wrap on your
e.mail program, it might cut off the "l" in "html". The URL works fine for
me, if you make sure the entire URL is clicked on and/or copied to your
clipboard and pasted into your browser.

the second can be solved by using windows shortcuts, linux symbolic links or
bind mounts. I think there is a filed request for user password and/or
multiple library support, but I can't seem to get into bugs.slimdevices.com at
the moment to confirm. If there isn't a multiple library request and you really
cannot tolerate teh shortcuts, feel free to file a request.

I agree with the common sentiment on this thread that leaving a PC on is
not a big deal; however, I really don't think it's my role to tell
someone else how to use their electricity.

To that end: take a look at the Execute Script plugin on Fishbone's page--
http://callisto.deane-freeman.com/slimserver/
If you can write a script that can shutdown your PC, you should be able
to do it from your squeezebox. This is simple if you are running
Linux...I can't speak to the complexity of doing it in Windoze.

For WinXP or 2003, a simple "shutdown -s -t 00" (maybe with a -f to
be sure everything closes) should do it.

For Win2K, take a look at psshutdown from Sysinternals.

oh yeah, I forgot about that :)

it can work on windows too if you create a simple .BAT file to call the
appropriate shutdown.exe command and arguments. They differ for different
windows versions. Drop the .bat file into c:\program
files\slimserver\server\scripts\ and the plugin should allow you to select it
through the player interface, and you can then press plan to execute it
immediately.
