A waketimer issue

Beitrag von BeverlyB » 29. Feb 2020, 15:36

I installed Lightsout 3.5 (thank you for fixing the hibernation issue reported - it's running much better now)
I noticed with an earlier beta that the lightsout wake timer is not set if I resume from hibernate when the NAS is powered off.

I just looked through the logs and I see that the waketimer gets set properly after backup and before my PC hibernates.

Then the NAS shuts off because it detects no activity.
This is all good so far

I do not have my PC set to automatically wakeup the NAS.

When my system is in that state:
PC just resumed from hibernate, NAS is off - nothing scheduled to run in the calendar at this time

There is no waketimer set by lightsout.

I see this in the logs. It looks like the waketimer is being canceled when the system resumes.

It doesn't get set again until the NAS is powered on while my PC is on.
If there is a day that I do not need to access the NAS, my PC will not wake up to do the backup at the scheduled time.

P.S. I'm sorry to hear about your father. May you find comfort in this difficult time.

Hi Beverly,

you wrote

There is no waketimer set by lightsout.
Yes, if nothing is scheduled in calender, then no waketimer is set.
It doesn't get set again until the NAS is powered on while my PC is on.
If there is a day that I do not need to access the NAS, my PC will not wake up to do the backup at the scheduled time.
Question: Is there a schedule for a later time? Can you tell me the schedule for this pc?

Regards
Martin

I tried the test build and so far it's working well.
Thank you!
