    Hi,

    some years ago, ive used an old player for W98, this player had a usefull feature: shutdown/hibernate after Playback.

    I think this could be usefull in Geexbox too,  just a suggestion..

    yes, you’re right, there is a shutdown timer, which i can say “shutdown in xx minutes”, but what i suggest is: The user says to the system: please shut down after actual playback has finished.

     

    Background:

    i use an old machine in my bedroom with geexbox to watch a episode of the simpsons, sometimes i fall asleep while geexbox is still playing and on the next morning the machine runs still.

    Option 1 is, as you told, to set the shutdown timer: look at the duration of the video and set the timer

    Option 2 could be to shut down the system after playback of this video automatically, in my opinion, this could be usefull, may be i am the only one who think this…

    no need : just do in settings / system  /power saving /shutdown function timer to 5min

    5 min after the end of the video the pc shutdown
