Don't turn off the display on playback or recording

asked May 8, 2017 in Studio One Feature Requests by vasilykorytov (11,560 points)

I start Studio One, set it to play on repeat. After some time, my screen turns off and on wake-on my computer requires a password, so I can't immediately stop it or do some other things.

That's kinda annoying: video players, for example, disable the screen turning off when in use. Some DAWs do that as well and that's the right behaviour. It's very weird and unconvenient that Studio One does not prevent energy saving from dimming and locking the screen.

I'm personally fine with it triggering during playback (I actually welcome it), however during recording it's a huge issue.

I recorded a 6-minute piano piece once and for the last 1 minute of recording I couldn't see S1 because it had kicked in. It should be quite easy to implement a way that input, be it MIDI or audio, resets the timer.
