Windows 7: Wake up from sleep to record?

Wake up from sleep to record?

Not sure where to post this, but my XP Media Center would wake up from sleep or hibernate to record (sometimes, not always). I can't seem to get Win7 to do this. It sleeps just fine, but will not wake up at the recording time.

I have power options set to never automatically sleep - I set it via power button - and the advanced power/Sleep/Allow setting is "Enable".

What settings am I getting wrong?

Thanks,
EdB

Hmmm - I haven't tried this yet - but I am kinda sure that it would create a task Scheduler item, and there you could set it to run with admin privileges and then set it to wake the computer every time it needed to.

Unfortunately I don't have time to test this, but if you send me a PM around Friday (if you haven't found an answer) I can test this on my end and see if I can get it working correctly.

Chuckle. johngalt is a busy man.

I am posting this to buy time. This question has been asked and answered on the forum. I will search for the thread.

Maybe someone will beat me to it.

Thanks for that Antman - I have stickied the thread as the developer is actively working to make that app Windows 7 compatible, and I have posted what I found in his forums as the last post.

EdB you might want to take a look at that application for your needs....

Wake from sleep to record works fine for me under Windows 7 RC 7100. I use to have problems getting my computer to stay in sleep mode. It would automatically wake up seconds after sleep was invoked. I never was able to find a software fix for this but when I switched from a Asus mother board to a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P all was fixed.
