Looks like you some enable deep sleep in win 10. Unfortunately, it is one of low documented features of Windows 10 on some systems and except native Windows player I've not seen any application support it (MMW included), Check your power options and allow only screen of without Sleep option and MMW should work after screen off.

Hi,

I'm having this problem. Screen powers down and playback stops, nudge the mouse and it starts again as the screen comes to life.
W10 64bit
MM 4.1.16 1836

Thanks

I thought I'd drop a line to say that the problem is happening again in Windows 8.1 prerelease. Playback stops when screen times out.

Probably disable audio processing would be enough. Anyhow thanks for your feedback ;-).

Well...upgraded to 1.0.3.52 this morning. :(

Played an album, screen timed out and music started stuttering...it does indeed keep playing through the timeout, but stuttering is not so great for listening to music. Pressing the Windows button to wake it up immediately stops the stuttering.

I am wondering if this is something related to my hardware (Dell Latitude 10; Atom processor and Windows 8 Pro), if this is working for everyone else.

Hopefully i've found the reason and it will work in next release.

Update:

* Play All, no shuffle, times out
* Play Genre, 88 songs, no shuffle, plays
* Play Genre, 202 songs, shuffle, times out
* Play Genre, 202 songs, no shuffle, still playing after 9 songs or a little over 30 minutes.

Large queue AND Shuffle?

Have fun! :D

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you...removed MM8 at the end of last week and reinstalled last night. To my joy, it played through a full album, 16 tracks.

HOWEVER, this morning, I thought I would throw a mountain at it and play all tracks on the device (2000+) with shuffle on. As soon as the screen goes to sleep, playback stops at the end of the currently playing track. Pressing the Windows button starts playback again...the device has not gone to sleep, only the screen.

I go back and select an artist with 6 tracks, press shuffle, it highlighted in yellow (active?) and then press shuffled again to remove highlighting (off?) All play through without timing out.

Since the screen and device had gone to sleep during these tracks, I press the Windows button and log back in to the device. Press Shuffle (highlighted yellow) and the same tracks start playing again. Screen goes to sleep and all 6 tracks play to completion. Hmmm...

Back to Play All Tracks, Shuffle and off we go...screen goes to sleep and playback stops at end of current track.

Hope this helps...at least I can play full albums now. I will see if I can play genres or if I can see a correlation to the number of songs queued up?

Dell Latitude 10 Tablet
Windows 8 Pro
MM8 v1.0.3.47 (x86)
All tracks are on SD card

After a lot of testing, we are still unable to reproduce the issue anymore, it seems to be fixed. I wonder, could you try to completely reinstall MM8 in order to make sure the isn't anything corrupted?
