Hello all. I recently built an HTPC. Here are the basics: Windows 7 home premium 64 bit using windows media center, Hauppauge 2250 tuner with IR receiver and remote.
Mostly everything is working properly, including the remote, which I have replaced with the Logitech Harmony 300 so I can control the receiver, TV, etc, in addition to media center.
Here is what I am trying to do: use the power button on the remote to bring the computer in and out of sleep (or maybe even turn the computer on and off). Currently, the power button simply closes Windows Media Center, leaving the computer on, which is not what I want.
I have googled this and found similar issues, but no solution.
In the Harmony software, I have chosen both "Hauppauge 2250" and "Windows Media Center" devices. Both work, but the power button behaves the same on both. If you are familiar with the Harmony software, you can drag and drop commands onto the button you want to assign the command to, but there is no "Sleep" option. Only "PowerToggle" which just closes out of media center. You can also "learn" commands from other remotes, but the remote that came with the tuner does not have a sleep button.
I know if I can just have the power button behave the same as if I physically press the power button on the computer, I should be able to configure the power option how I want in Control Panel.
