    Does anyone know if there is any kind of a server plugin that would power down a Transporter either after so much idle time, or on a schedule? I don't mind if it's good for other devices as well, but I'm specifically interested in not having the Transporter powered up for days on end. I don't mind having to turn it on to use it. I'd like to not have to remember to turn it off.

    not needed because squeezeboxes are never really OFF. When not playing they are in basically standby mode but not truly off. This said, it is good to not use the displays when not needed. I use a plugin called "BLANK SAVER" and set that as the screensaver when OFF or NOT PLAYING.

    The only true way to power off a Transporter is to unplug it from power.

    Are you trying to save power or the Display life?

    Have you seen the “Turn Audio Off” option?

    You must be aware of the sleep timer too? And the Display setting can just be set to OFF when the Player is OFF. This is best for saving the display, though I do use Plugins for scheduling the Displays of Classics, as I do use and like the Spelled Time plugin.

    The display and the heat generating components that have a finite life and can be costly to replace.
