I updated from Slimp3 Server 4.2.6 to 5.01 today. Everything seems to
work fine except that the Slimp3 can't be turned off completely anymore.


When I press the power button time and date is displayed. When I press
the power button again the display goes black for about 2 seconds, then
the player is turned on again automatically.

With 4.2.6 the display stayed black until i pressed the power button
again.

I find this quite disturbing because my Slimp3 is located in my bedroom.



BTW.: I am using the old, classic Slimp3 device.

never known this to be the case. press power, you get the date and time. press
power again, and it should be back on. Do you see the Welcome to Slimp3 message?

its not as disturbing as you think. When powered off, the dispaly always shows
date and time. You can adjust the brightness by using the brightness key to
toggle through the brightness settings. One of these is display off.
