[In v3.4.2020.0601] Keep System Awake for Music Playback

Post by clmber » Sun May 31, 2020 11:27 pm

I recently configured CMC to display and play my music. When my PC monitor times out. CMC shuts down. WMC used to keep the system from timing out. Can you add a way to do this in CMC? Thanks!

Hi clmber,

This is an issue that affects me as well, so I understand completely.

I looked into how to do this, and it was so easy that I went ahead and added it to CMC. This will be available in v3.4.2020.0601, which I am releasing later today.

By default, this new feature will be disabled. To enable, go to Settings > Display Settings > Keep PC Awake.

Please let me know how it works for you.
