PC randomly waking up when flirc plugged in.

Did a limited amount of testing tonight. Upgraded to fw_wake_v5. Wake key works fine, and every time. Button assigned to the space bar also wakes up computer. There were also instances where the computer would wake up as soon as it would go to sleep. (for example, I press the sleep button - the power button on my pc - and about 5 seconds after everything shuts down, computer starts up again).

After I was getting instant wake ups, I turned off all the lights in the room and put it to sleep. As soon as I turn on a light, the pc would start up.

Following more testing, I could get it to wake up for pretty much anything. Any button on the remote would work (assigned or not). Small amounts of light didn't, but the screen of my phone did. Unplugging the flirc, and then putting it to sleep, the pc would only wake up with a keyboard press (no random wake ups).

Interesting twist, I reset the firmware back to stable 1.0 and could still wake the pc with button presses (light didn't work). Cleared the config, and it stopped working. Assigned buttons, and every button that was assigned would wake the pc.This was still on stock 1.0.

I have not tested all this on any other pc, but will try to some time this weekend.

A bit more information... I decided to move from openELEC to Windows until the vdpau issues are sorted. I have openELEC ION RC1 installed on a USB stick and Windows 7 32bit Eden B3 on internal 2.5" HDD. PC is a Shuttle XS35GT. Booted into openELEC for the first time since I got flirc in the mail... Flirc 1.0 is waking my openELEC no problem, but not Windows 7.

When I get a bit more time, tomorrow I bet, I'll try flirc v5 to see if the random wake ups happen in openELEC.

Another possibly unrelated thing to note. If I use the power button to suspend my pc (and the power settings tell the pc to suspend, not hibernate or anything else), I can use the flirc to wake it up on stock 1.0 firmware using an assigned button. If I suspend through XBMC (shutdown -> suspend), the flirc won't wake it up at all (using 1.0 fw).

In response to my previous post; yup... waking up randomly with openELEC as well as windows 7, v5 firmware.

Windows: Same here but only flirc v5 not 1.0. If I use the power button on PC, PC will stay suspended until I wake it with remote.

openELEC: power button sleeps machine properly and can wake with remote v5 and 1.0

Thanks for the temporary solution!
