  • RESUME after hibernate frodoplayer paused until user input

    I am running a clean install of XP Pro slipstreamed SP2. When i run frodoplayer (take 3) and use hibernate, on resume frodoplayer does not resume playing music until i press a key or move the mouse. This does not happen on my other computers. I have a p4 2.2 laptop with an ati radeon 7500 mobility. Every once in a blue moon, on resume the music will play immediately but 99% of the time it will not. anyone esle experience this?

    I am seeing this too. I've even gone as far as creating a macro exe that moves the mouse. I added this to the Frodo-Resume options but it doesn't execute until I provide some user input....go figure!

    To make matters worse.... if i don't provide user input within 5-10 minutes my machine hibernates.

    any ideas?

      not to state the obvious but have you checked your power saving settings for hibernating after so many minutes idle?

      i tried something similar to your mouse moving idea with no success. i found a program that would move your mouse every couple of seconds (some kind of gag program that someone wrote) and ran that before hibernating. after resuming from hibernate, the mouse would move every 5 seconds, but still no response from frodoplayer or navivoice. however winamp resumed playing music just fine. it has to be a driver issue. something specific to laptops maybe, but i've tried disabling everything i could in device manager but i still get the same thing. i haven't a clue what could be causing this. the weird thing is that winamp will run fine after hibernate, but frodo and navivoice hang. the only solution i can come up with is to open up my laptop case and hook up a delayed pulse to the screen open/close switch. i happened to notice that opening and closing the screen would un-hang frodo and navivoice just like pressing a key or moving the mouse. it's a very round about way to work around the problem but i have tried everything i know to do.

        my carputer does the same exact thing, doesnt do anything untill I touch the screen and it will hibernate unless I touch the screen in like 5 minutes. I figured it was just something goofy with my mobo.


        I have checked hibernation settings, bios settings, reloaded windows. no avail

            Yeah, I checked this... thanks for the suggestion. When I move the mouse or hit a key, the computer will stay on indefinitely... so it can't be power saving settings. I am using an emachines mobo as well so it's not specific to laptops either. I will have to be a little more creative to find a valid workaround like you've done.

                You should check your settings in power management, it may be that it's configured to turn the monitor off / blank the screen after so many minutes

                If you think about it, say you go into hibernation at 5pm and resume again at 7pm - your computer is going to suddenly think it's been idle for 2 hours.

                Well that's just a theory, I'm probably talking crap

                  I didn't think about this... Mine is configured to turn the monitor off after 30 min. But under normal operation, the monitor turns off and the music continues to play. I would expect the computer to do the same (continue playing) once resuming from hibernation.... But I will try this tonite unless someone already has.

                    mine is set to never go into standby or into hibernate, and if I touch the screen the computer will run for hours and hours without blanking or hibernating

                      Is everyone only having a problem with frodo? or is this happening with other frontends?

                        winamp runs fine after resume so any frontend that uses winamp will work. the ones i know work are mediacar, roadrunner.

                        i tried leaving my laptop on after resume from hibernate and not touch it, and it stayed on so i don't have the hibernating after being idle for 5 minutes problem. still wish frodo and navivoice work. at the moment i'm working on a modified brushed metal skin for roadrunner to use for this laptop.

                              Hmm thats kind of funny. I am using the same FP 1.09 and it seams to be working fine.
                              I mean it resumes fine from HIBERNATION and keeps playing the music on its own. and no shutting off or going back to hibernate mode in 5 odd mts...
