Standby with Twonky running?

Post by vokuit00 » Sun Jun 07, 2009 9:30 pm


i'vo got a question on the standby behaviour with a running twonky.

Does a network connection to the twonky server disable the standby functionality of windows? So as long as i look a video or hear some music over the server connection, the windows xp doesn't change to standby mode?

And when i stop using the server, the win xp goes into standby?

Thanks for answers

I know that the ReadyNAS versions of Twonky are all excellent at dealing with disk hibernation (unlike SqueezeCenter). I haven't tried the Windows disk hibernation utility, but I would have thought that a Windows machine would not go into standby mode whilst streaming since the disks are actually being used.
