    Someone please help - RR not saving song on exit

    I've been having this problem for almost a year. I figured something was wrong with my system but I did a full XP reinstall and reinstalled the latest rr (12/13) along with winamp 5.13. Note that when I first had the carpc it did work properly.

    The problem: RR will more often than not lost the songs in the playlist on exit. For example, I start with a blank playlist, browse to an album and add all the songs. I now have an "on-the-go" playlist. Everything's going well but when I exit road runner (usually by standby but even just exiting normally) and resume, either
    1. the playlist is empty
    2. the playlist is still there but instead of resuming playing music where it was, music is stopped and the song selected is one that was playing a few songs before I exited
    3. it works as it should (very, very rarely)

    Is there anyone that might know what's going on or is there anything I can put in exectbl to force rr to save the current location on exit/standby and force it to reload the saved position on reload? I primarily use standby for 2 hours and then a hard off.

    Anyone out there know what's going on? This is like the last hurdle to overcome having a great, fully functioning system and I promise not to mess with it any further if I get this working... haha.

    TIA!

    It may be caused by a com port not closing correctly, stopping RR from saving the resume.ini file (and any other changes). Try unplugging any usb devices that you can, or anything else using a com port and see if things work. If it works, then try isolating which one is causing the problem and check drivers. I was having a similar problem caused by a serial to usb adapter.

    Is there a way to actually diagnose the problem rather than just unplugging a bunch of stuff and hoping that it can be isolated?

    Did you mess with the Hibernate aware Setting in RR.ini? Not sure if this applies, but putting hibernateaware=false in my ini solved a similar problem for me.

    I didn't change it from the default hibernateaware setting. I will try both suggestions a little later today and let you know.

    Would the hibernateaware setting and the suggestion regarding USB devices/com ports affect just exiting roadrunner and not even going into standby? Because it loses the playlist even when just exiting and reloading the skin

    ok, just tested both suggestions and unfortunately neither one fixed the issue. I changed hibernateaware to false and also tried running with nothing USB except the mouse. Still won't save my current playlist on exit.

    I dont know what the values in resume.ini correlate to but for reference here's what it currently is:
    -1
    -1
    false
    false
    path of skin here
    0
    false
    false
    false
    false

    That mean anything to anyone? I have resume music set to always in rr.ini.

    You probably should post your entire rr.ini file.

    Try this.
    Run RR and play whatever you want for a minute or 2.
    Close RR and let it shut down completely.
    Restart RR and let see if the music resume where it left off.
    If it does,there is a problem somewhere with your standby/hibernate setting.

    resume.ini line descriptions:
    -1 (if audio is playing at time of exiting, this is the list position that is currently playing)
    -1 (current track position)
    False (repeat T/F)
    False (Shuffle T/F)
    path of skin here (current skin path)
    0 (SpeedAttBaseVolume)
    False (VideoShuffle)
    False (?)
    False (?)
    False (?)

    The first line tells me that WA was/is stopped, values are -1=stopped, 4=playing or paused
    Second line is the song position, and if WA is paused when exiting there is a "-" infront of the position..
    Don't know why your line 5 doesn't have the currently used skin path??
