Allows the automatic start of MediaPortal 2 together with Windows. 

Configure Windows energy savings

MediaPortal 2 doesn't require additional plugins to control the client's powerstates. Instead it uses the Windows energy management functions to blank the screen and send the computer into standby/hibernate.  

Set up Windows energy settings to define the screen deactivation and system suspend times. 

The client system can be in three states. Depending on the configured settings and the Windows energy timeout definitions, the client will enter the following energy states

StateBlank screenStandby
Busy / Video contentNoNo
Busy / Audio onlyYesNo

This is providing screen saving as well as automatic power off functionalities. Further customization is possible by prohibiting suspension and screen deactivation to suspend Windows' power settings while the MediaPortal 2 client app is running: 

Shutdown menu

The shutdown menu is fully configurable. Choose the options that you would like to be displayed when entering the client's shutdown menu and adjust the display order to your preference. 

The maximal timeout of the sleep timer to suspend or power down the client after a configurable time (max 300 min = 5 hours).
