  1. Did you perchance correspond that info to the authors? It is, after
    all, an open source project.

    You could also simply leave it 'up", and then when you return, it will
    still be there.

    Open another instance to watch something else, and the first instance
    should still be there.

    There's a number of posts on their forum complaining about this one flaw.
    I'm pretty sure that they've read them.
    The computer gets turned off when not in use.
     
  3. Place it into hibernation instead.

    Added benefit of nearly instantaneous (comparatively) restart time.

    It would be a nice test, for sure, especially if the actual movie file
    is on yet another location. That would delay the restart a few seconds
    more, as it re-establishes those "hooks". Should be fine, if all the
    powers that be (OS authors, App authors) did everything right.

    Could puke all over itself and me, however.

    For some reason, I hadn't thought of that. I did some testing and wasn't
    happy with the time for it to resume in Windows XP, and writing 3GB to an
    SSD on a daily basis did not appeal to me either, so I tried STR (S3).
    When powered off, the computer draws about 2W, in S3, it draws about 4W
    for a mini-itx mobile 965 chipset with a 2.2GHz core2 duo. So it looks
    like a decent compromise.

    Thanks for that. Still wish they'd add the feature, though.
     
  5. Oooops... apparently I meant "sleep" NOT hibernation. Sorry.

    I haven't even given this stuff a glance in a long time, other than to
    turn it off as an auto-function of "power saving".

    It is a question of thermal insulation. There are 0.2 watts incandescent lamps. And a some 1W resistor does not even get warm with that power.
