MCEbuddy preventing sleep?

Dec 5, 2015 at 11:04 PM
I have tested sleep mode on my pc with the mcebuddy service running and not running. It seems like MCEbuddy is preventing my pc from sleeping, even though nothing is converting and WMC is not recording anything. If I stop the service, then my pc goes to sleep (after the set 10 minutes).

Is this normal, what can be done?

Check the settings, check allow sleep.

I unchecked that because it says it will allow it to sleep while converting. That's not what I want. I don't want it to sleep while converting. I want it to allow the PC to sleep if it is not converting. It seems like it is preventing sleep even though there is nothing converting.

That's exactly how it works and just tested it. It's working fine here in all our lab machines.

What OS are you using? Are you trying to it to sleep through a timer or manually?
