#11034 closed Bug Report - General (Fixed)

Frontend can enter standby during external program execution

I have some menu items that perform an EXEC. (In my case, it runs Firefox, which I use to watch Amazon Video). As soon as the program exits, my frontend tries to enter standby mode. The idle timer should be suspended during execution of programs.

I created a workaround in my home system. It looks like this: I'm pretty sure that's the wrong fix though. It feels like the real fix belongs in MythSystem?. But that patch was easy for me to create because I saw the log lines about input devices appearing at the same time I needed to kick the timer, and because I'm not familiar with mythsystem.cpp.

I have a related patch here:
