View Full Version : Power on-->Wake on lan-->Power on again - Why?

Why is it that once my server is sleeping and I press power on the SB wakes up the server and then, instead of going back to the "on" state it displays the "off" screensaver (for me Date&Time)?

Hi gorman

I haven't tried myself, but I guess the state the player is in after you wake up your PC running SC7 depends on whether the player was on or off when the PC went to sleep as the player power state is maintained on the server side.

Says "Waking SlimServer" for ~30s, then returns to off state. It takes my server 35s to start SlimServer, so have to press Power again to begin navigation.

You have likely seen this enhancement request, but maybe others have not: 4782 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4782). This would resolve the issue of SB3 switching off after sending WOL, no?

Drives me nuts too.

Drives me nuts too that the discrete IR codes for turning on when server is off line vs server online is different too.
