I have used flirc for quite a year or so in my ubuntu box (+XBMC+Harmony 900 remote), and never had problems with it. Recently, I decided to install Win7 instead, and managed to get everything working - except for the sleeping part. What is strange is that I manage to get the machine to sleep and wake with my remote without any issues as long as I wake it up within a few seconds/minutes.
If I leave it to sleep for say 30 min+, then I am not able to wake the machine up. I have to manually switch it on to wake my machine, and then I find that flirc is not receiving any commands (which is why it wasn't waking it!). To get it to work again, I just need to open the gui, which then says "connected" and everything works.
Can you help me figure out what is wrong?
=> Running firmware 3.1, gui v1.29
=> I have "sleep detection" on, "noise canceler" off, "builtin profiles" on, "sequence modifiers" off
=> Win7 with the latest updates
=> hybrid sleep: Off, set with S3
=> I have disabled all USB root hubs to allow the computer to turn off the device to save power
=> I have set the HID keyboard device (flirc) as the only device to wake the computer
