Description of Issue

Everything works fine until I leave my Mac and it enters sleep (monitor off → 10 mins)
Then, it is impossible to find the core when opening Roon App. Core immediately re-appears when waking Mac
Wake for network access is ON (Mac mini)
Wake on LAN is ON (Fritz!box)
I have read on other support pages to disable “Software Packet Acceleration” but I don’t find this setting anywhere in Fritz! web interface
Any suggestions?

Roon doesn’t wake over network, you have to use another app to wake the PC first, and then connect.

Get the Amphetamine app from the App Store. My Mac Pro never sleeps.

I can’t decide if your Mac Pro is like rust or like NYC

Thanks Charles - Amphetamine worked, but it kind of defeats the purpose of having energy saving. I will vote as feature request

Thank you - I will vote as feature request
