How can you stop DVBDream overriding Window's power options?

Postby Andrew Wood » Wed Nov 07, 2012 9:48 am

Simply, whenever DD is running (especially when minimized to the tray) I don't want it to override the power options set in Windows - ie I have the display set to turn off after a few minutes, but if DD is running, the display will not turn off which is somewhat annoying when it's left to do background recording when I'm away from the PC.

Is there a way to prevent this behaviour - as it also prevents the screensaver coming on as well?

mmm currently not possible, next version will have such option to allow screensaver / power-save mode to work
