Hi,

I was just trying to convert 3000 files for wma to flac.
I hoped to find the job done when I came home - but instead of that I found my Windows 7 asleep ... resuming the job when I woke my system. Because I use power management and I don't see why I should switch it off.
I think you should set the "system required" flag in your program - when conversion is active.
For some programs that even don't care about power management, I wrote a work-around script in AutoIt, where the relevant line is:

DllCall("kernel32.dll", "long", "SetThreadExecutionState", "long", 0x80000001)

When the job is finished, just set "SetThreadExecutionState" to 0x80000000.

Couldn't this be implemented?

Thanks and regards,

Martin

Consider it done (next R14 beta).
