I had been regularly sticking with official releases until 7.3 series and WOL went to pot. I tried the new plugin, patches etc. Finally I put last 7.2 version back and to be honest this the most stable squeezecenter/slimserver has ever been in the few years I've owned it. Server has done a successful "Wake" and stay awake and go back to sleep WHEN appropriate for several months with out a glitch. Even the WOL with the Duet has been perfect.

There is nothing more annoying than the system randomly deciding to go to sleep when it shouldn't.

I perfectly understand there are times that you make two steps forward and one step back when refactoring code and I think this was the case.

However I just got a Duet to go with my tranporter and there are some fixes I would like for it under the new builds.

Is WOL rock solid again? And I mean ROCK SOLID. Wakes EVERY time, allows server to only sleep when transporter has been in standby for a while.

Been running 7.4 nighties for a few months, no issues with WOL at all.

Had you seen the problem in 7.3 are you using stock standby plugin or the new standby plugin or is the new one now standard. I forget what it's call but it's the plugin that knows how to keep server awake.

P.S. I'm running server on XP.

Just the stock Server Power Control plugin included in SC. Never had to fiddle with it, as its always worked perfectly.

I did have one issue quite while back, but that was with the SBC waking the server all the time. Thats sorted now.

You're right the nightly 7.4 build is running good regarding WOL and everything else for that matter.
