prevent cinnamon from sleeping while files are playing on the raspberry pi

Post by charroo » Thu Sep 21, 2017 4:52 pm

hi again

when my pi is playing music and my desktop (where the files are) is getting asleep the music is cut and i need to go to the desktop for waking it.

the 'wake on lan' is working only when i try to play files but not when they are already playing.

what can i do so the 'wake on lan' will work better and i will not have to wake it myself?

thanks

The Raspberry Pi uses so little power that it would make sense to simply turn the sleep function off completely.

I was referring to the desktop.

Hi "charroo",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

Would this help?

The "Caffeine" utility allows you to prevent the activation of both the screensaver and the "sleep" powersaving modes.
