SUMMARY

Away mode is a new feature that introduces a power management mode of operation in Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

If Away mode is enabled, the computer enters Away mode instead of standby. The computer enters Away mode when you press the Power button on the remote control. This behavior also occurs when you press SLEEP on the keyboard. After the computer enters Away mode, the computer appears to be turned off. However, the computer is still running. For example, it can still perform functions such as record TV shows or serve Windows Media Extender sessions.

When your computer enters Away mode, the following actions occur:

• The display is turned off.

• The audio is muted.

• Input devices such as keyboards, mouse devices, and the remote control are filtered to make sure that errant keystrokes are not processed.

• Media playback is stopped, except for live TV.

• The CPU may enter a lower power performance state. This condition occurs if a lower power performance state is supported by the hardware.

• The graphics processor may enter a lower power performance state. This condition occurs if a lower power performance state is supported by the computer's graphics hardware and drivers.

MORE INFORMATION

To view Away mode options, click the Away tab in Power Options in Control Panel. If there is no Away tab here, the computer does not support Away mode.

The following settings are available on the Away tab:

• Enable Away mode

When you click to select the Enable Away mode check box, Away mode is enabled. After you enable Away mode, the settings for the Sleep button on the Advanced tab of Power Options are unavailable. When you click to clear the Enable Away mode check box, Away mode is disabled, and the settings for the Sleep button are restored.

• Return the computer from Away mode on mouse or keyboard activity

When you click to select the Return the computer from Away mode on mouse or keyboard activity check box, any keyboard, mouse or remote control activity returns the computer from Away mode. When you click to clear this check box, the computer returns from Away mode only when you press the Power button on the remote control, or SLEEP on the keyboard.

• Prompt for password when the computer returns from Away mode

When you click to select the Prompt for password when the computer returns from Away mode check box, you are prompted to log on to the computer when you return from Away mode.

Note Away mode is not installed as part of Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Away mode is available only if the following conditions are true:

• The Away mode component was preinstalled by an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or system builder.

• The Away mode component was preinstalled on a new Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005-based computer that supports Away mode technology.

You can add or remove any unwanted programs thru Add or Remove Windows Components

So does the media center play vids, no updates are prompted for?

I think I will try to make it compatible with the integrator then call it final

BTW if you guys go to add remove windows components you can add/remove any "Digital Media Enhancements" you may or may not want

Finally its here. Thank you bro, I'll discontinue my addons, cos yours best here :)

You could probably do as I did and make a Turkish version, use the INF and MUI files to directly patch the ehome, createdisc and plus program files
