    Away Mode issue


    Thank you for this great and impressive forum and site.

    I'm using WMC to record TV broadcasts but in Windows 10 when the computer (Dell XPS 8900) wakes from sleep to carry out a scheduled recording it doesn't go into Away Mode as the monitor turns on. This didn't happen in Windows 7. Same happens if I use WinTV. I added the "Allow Away Mode Policy" in Power Options in Windows 10 but makes no difference.

    Anybody else have this problem ?
