Default Prevent Standby/sleep mode Windows 7


It would be great if the new FlashFXP version would prevent Windows 7 from going into Standby/sleep mode during transfer.

Great idea!

This will be added in the next build of the 4.0 beta

I have done a test with FlashFXP v4.0.0 (build 1488) (RC 2).
My system still goes to Standby/sleep mode during transfer.

I did a 'Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report' during the transfer:

Platform Timer Resolution:Platform Timer Resolution
The default platform timer resolution is 15.6ms (15625000ns) and should be used whenever the system is idle. If the timer resolution is increased, processor power management technologies may not be effective. The timer resolution may be increased due to multimedia playback or graphical animations.
Current Timer Resolution (100ns units) 10000
Maximum Timer Period (100ns units) 156001

Platform Timer Resolution:Outstanding Timer Request
A program or service has requested a timer resolution smaller than the platform maximum timer resolution.
Requested Period 10000
Requesting Process ID 2456
Requesting Process Path \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Program Files (x86)\FlashFXP 4\FlashFXP.exe
When I did 'Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report' during a FTP transfer with Total Commander the output was:

System Availability Requests:System Required Request 
 The program has made a request to prevent the system from automatically entering sleep. 
  Requesting Process \Device\HarddiskVolume2\Program Files (x86)\totalcmd\TOTALCMD.EXE
The 'Power Efficiency Diagnostics Report' is created using the following command:
(with an elevated command prompt)

C:\powercfg -energy -output d:\energy-report.html
Hope this helps!
