    Hi,

    Can anyone suggest an answer to this problem, please?

    I have been using MRU-Blaster for a long time but recently it has started causing a problem: I have set the Power Options in my Windows XP Pro installation so that the monitor and hard disc are turned off after 15 minutes inactivity.

    Now, if MRU-Blaster is running in the background these settings are ignored and the monitor and HD stay on indefinitely. Is there any way that MRU-Blaster can run in the background without interfering with the Power Options? Although I have been using MRU-Blaster for some time, it is only recently that this problem has occurred.

    Hi,

    Apologies for the delay.

    The current version of MRU-Blaster does not have explicit support for detecting computer inactivity or Windows power management.

    However, if MRU-Blaster isn't actively "running" (i.e. scanning and cleaning) it shouldn't be able to prevent your computer from detecting inactivity. (One exception - the built-in "Scheduler" tool that runs MRU-Blaster at an interval could possibly cause this, although I haven't tested it - you could look into replacing it with the built-in Windows Task Scheduler.)

    Best regards,
