    I have tried power scheduler and the ++ version but they don't seem to be able to do what MCE Standby tool could do for MCE (unless I'm mistaken)
    Basically if the TV is left on and on same channel for more than 3 hours or so with no user intervention then I would like it to go into standby.
    Powerscheduler will not do this as the tv service is running
    Is there any way of doing this or any other plugin for MP that will ?

    Thanks

    I don't know of anything, you could try asking over on the Media Portal forums.

    It sounds like quite a powerful program though, that you want it to take over and put the PC to sleep if no user intervention for 3 hours. You would probably have to disable the MediaPortal PowerScheduler and just use the third party one instead.

    I wonder if the MST tool would still work?
