Description Of Issue
I have a sleep timer (using the Windows 10 Power & Sleep settings) on the PC running Roon Core to ensure it goes to sleep after a certain time of inactivity. However, even when Roon is playing to one of my audio end-points, the PC still goes into sleep mode, stopping playback. From other threads I understand this is not intended behavior. Is there anything I can do to prevent the PC running core going into sleep mode when playing? Of course I would like to keep the energy saving settings so the PC does go into sleep mode when nothing has been playing for a while.
To clarify, are you using the Roon UI on the machine or are you using RoonServer?
Thanks for responding to this issue. I’m using the UI on this machine.
You might have better results using RoonServer instead of the all-in-one install if you’re using other remotes. Otherwise there should be settings within Windows 10 that allow you to set exceptions for power-saving options for certain applications. Feel free to share some screenshots of your sleep/power-saving settings if you have trouble!
I really like to be able to turn the device on when I need it and have it in sleep mode when not in use (and control Roon via the UI), but I am using remotes as well, for example in the kitchen. I assume you’re referring in your advice more to the general Roon philosophy than to this specific issue? In any case, everything works fine if I set the sleep timer to 3 hours, at least it continues playing for most of the time, while still going into sleep mode when I forget to turn it off. Can you share where these application specific settings can be made, I would really like to get this to work better? Thanks @dylan!
Please let me know if you need more information to support.
Can you share some screenshots of your current power saving / sleep settings?
Unfortunately Roon can’t be force the computer to stay awake, but you should be able to adjust the settings in Windows so they work for you.
Thanks, in that case I think there’s no perfect solution. I either pick a high sleep timer or none like I have right now. Please see screenshot attached
Yes, you’ll want to make sure that your PC is not set to sleep while Roon might be running. The settings in Power & Sleep (there are also some advanced settings with more options) should allow you to create a plan that works for you.
