View Full Version : Duet controller "Please Wait..."

2010-12-01, 05:28

I have a duet and the controller, after it has finished playing the songs says "Please Wait" with a spinning circle when I pick it up to play some more music on it. What's the best way of stopping this?

I already have the "Prevent System Stancby" plugin v 2.0 and "Prohibit Standby if Player is on" is ticked. and I have set the slider to 0 to completely prevent system standby.

The "best" way is to place the cradle so that the Controller sits in it while you're playing music.

But there may be other solutions. Some related forum threads:

You have a suspend setting somewhere and in settings > advanced > factory test you can completely bypass all power savings, beware battery runs out fast then... :)

I'm not near my controller now there is different times re suspend and screen blanking one can find some reasonable compromise .

I can not say the exact locations in the menu, but they are there.
But I know you can choose a time before suspend and also a time for when the screen should go black.

But I agree my type of listening is similar turn on an album listen to a couple of songs or more before touching the controller again...

This leads to that it have to wake up, but this saves both battery and display 2 components with not soo long life span in the controller, i prefer that.
