Windows 11 screen doesn't turn off.
« on: April 02, 2024, 09:42:14 AM »
WACUP 1.9.20.17040 .   DSP/ Effect v 2.5.2 .  I  broadcast my internet radio and usually I put in laptop option that screen turn off after 1. minute . It happened when I used Winamp but it doesn't happen when WACUP in use. Could it be DSP plugin issue which keeps screen awake, please? Thanks.

Preferences -> Playback -> Playback tab -> uncheck "Use system keep-alive (default: on)"

That's enabled by default as there's numerous setups where the device / monitor needs to be kept on for the audio to be heard (e.g. due to integrated speakers) but in your instance it's not going to be helpful hence the option.

I want to be honest -dro was right - it doesn't work and WACUP stream DSP switch off if screen turns off BUT!  I installed Shoutcast DSP plugin and it works!!! So happy anyway,thanks for your efforts!

Using either of the DSP plug-ins shouldn't make a difference to the behaviour about staying awake or not as it's the playback state which determines things & not the DSP which is just part of the input -> output chain going on.
