My iMac (Snow Leopard) has an annoying habit of going to sleep while I'm playing music on my Squeezebox library, using my Duet. In the Energy settings in the Control Panel, I do have it set to sleep after 15 minutes of no use, but I would think accessing music on its hard drive during play would qualify for being "in use." The music doesn't stop if I'm listening to internet radio, only if I'm accessing my library. Can anyone offer suggestions? I think this is a relatively new development, as I think it used to work without going to sleep and I don't know what changed.

No, I haven't heard a response from the community. I welcome any ideas, as I no longer want to use the Squeezebox with my machine continually going to sleep..... Help, anyone?

Hmm, there is a plugin called Windows Prevent System Standby. I'm assuming there is something similar for Mac OS. But I don't see anything listed in SbS settings > Plugins. But I also don't recall seeing this problem discussed at all over at this forum over the past few years:
I'm not sure if the plugin "SrvrPowerCtrl" would be of any use to you.
Again, not a Mac user, but I suspect that the problem is not with SbS or the SB players. Is there is a setting on your Mac itself that will keep it from going into standby/sleep while music is playing (even if harddrive/monitor goes into sleep mode). This is probably the source of your issue. You might try posting at a few Mac sites to see if anyone has an answer to this issue.
