Sleep/Wake with a single button in openelec/XBMC?

Recommended Posts

How does one go about making just one button sleep and way the unit in openelec?

 

I have the wake button programmed to the power button on the remote, but I am now unable to assign it to sleep the box.  I really don't like the idea of having to have a separate wake and sleep key.

 

The Flirc GUI won't allow me to assign two keys to the same button press.  Is the wake signal passed into the OS as a button press?  If so I could do a custom keymap for it, but I have no idea at this point if it is or what the signal sent is.  I assume that I have to do this in openelec somehow?  I see there's a thread that covers this exactly here on the forum, but it's windows only.  The other thread is for Gnome, so it also doesn't apply (as far as I can tell).

 

Thanks for any help.

Unfortunatelly you cannot assign the button already assigned to WAKE to another key. There is no way around this. It's already been suggested but I don't know if such a feature is even possible to be implemented.

Seems to me pretty straightforward (knowing nothing about the architecture of the flirc of course) to have a feature to set a flag on a particular button to do sleep detection rather than require a separate button/feature that is divorced from the rest of the functionality.

 

Wish this was open source...  I would certainly have a go at it...

Afaik the flirc device behaves like a usb keyboard, so the wake up feature is hardware related.

With OE installed on a x86 machine, you need to configure the s3 energy saving options in the bios to wake up (and boot) the system, if you put the system into suspend mode via OE.
