View Full Version : Sleep problem started in 5.1 still in 5.1.1

I am having a problem with the sleep function on my squeezebox. I start up
a playlist that I want to listen to while dozing off, set the sleep timer to
30 minutes and dim the display.



Here is what happens.



When the 30 minutes elapses and the unit starts to go into "sleep mode" it
starts to blink the display and the audio starts to stutter (versus the
normal fadeout that I am used to from earlier builds). what is worse is that
after the unit goes completely "to sleep" it fires back up on the next track
in the playlist at full volume, typically waking me up.



Any ideas or debugging info I can provide to help get this fixed? I first
started getting this in 5.1 and figured it would be fixed in 5.1.1 but it's
not, so now I am reporting the problem.



Thanks,



Jason.

Are these non-mp3 by any chance? I'm mostly mp3 in my library, running in Linux
and sleep function works just fine for me.

If no one reports it, it might not get fixed :) Perhaps try d_command and
d_source to try to see any volume change commands, and hopefully stop mode when
its done, or why its not happening for you.
