Is there a limiting reason "Sleep" only supports a maximum of 90 minutes?
Would anyone else desire a choice of 120? My Sony amp's "Sleep" default is
2 hours and I'd like to just press it once on each remote. Could various
sleep options be added as choices in the server setup versus hardcoding
(similar to the way artist/title formats are handled)?

As a last resort, I would consider changing the Slim/Buttons/Common.pm file,
but since I use the Windows binary it would have no effect, correct?

absolutely possible. Just needs approval from Dean/vidur to have it included.

you are correct. You would need the PerlApp kit from ActiveState, OR you can
download the ActiveState Perl, run teh tar.gz version of slimserver from raw
code and use FireDaemon to control the perl script like a service. Then if you
edit any code, it will run just fine.

You can also submit a patch which Dean may include in the next nightly build.

I'm happy to add a 2 hour choice, if that's something that folks would
find useful.

That's right.
