powercfg lastwake - reports the event that last woke the pc
powercfg /requests - reports what is keeping your pc from entering sleep
Well, but, it IS going to sleep (while streaming a movie to the Roku), so I don't see how either of those will help in my situation.
Weird no one else seems to be having this issue. Maybe it's not so common to put your computer to sleep? I may have to change the sleep time to two hours. That'll waste electricity and wear on my hard drives though.
Increase the sleep timer. The issue is that even with Transcoding, that doesn't occur over the entire video. In my experience the transcoding is done in 30% of the time it takes a video to play. After that the client is just reading .ts files off the server. So the system goes to sleep.
Increasing your sleep timer to two or three hours would prevent this but your device won't sleep much. I actually don't sleep my server/workstation to avoid this problem.
The solution could be:
The Roku sends a magic packet every XXX seconds. It doesn't support this currently. Or...
The MB server tells the OS that it is busy every XXX seconds.
