View Full Version : Unwanted message "Problem: Can't connect to SqueezeCenter" when server is hibernating

2008-01-28, 14:12

I have a transporter connected to my PC. When I am not listening to music, I often hibernate my computer.

From time to time, well after my PC is down, a message pops up on the display. The message is displayed for about 5 seconds and is always at full brightness. I do not see any pattern as to why this message shows up at any particular time:

"Problem: Can't connect to SqueezeCenter"
"Left to go back, right to try again."

This happens regardless of using the wired or wireless connections. This happens regardless of whether or not the transporter was "off" when I hibernated my computer.

I do have my transporter set to brightness 0 when off, and *usually* turn off the transporter prior to hibernation. However, this doesn't seem to matter.

This message shows up hours after my PC has been hibernating. Usually it shows up twice in a row. Sometimes the message shows up again and again in the span of an hour or so. At other times it doesn't appear to happen for a long time (or I'm getting used to it and starting to ignore it).

Does anyone else see this behavior? If so, can you let Slim Devices know as their tech support as been unable to reproduce this behavior.

Much Thanks,

I should add that I think I also saw this message when I was running the older SlimServer 6.x as well as SqueezeCenter 7.x.

Anyone else have a transporter & hibernate/standby/shutdown your server when not in use?

If so, do you see these messages, or not?

Many Thanks,

I too have the same problem - anyone have a solution?

I'm using SqueezeCenter 7.1 and a PC running Vista.

I'm having the same issue (SqueezeCenter Version: 7.2 - 22900 on Ubuntu 8.04)

I'm pretty sure this has only started happening since 7.2 upgrade.

Any help much appreciated...
