As has been discussed here in the past in other threads, Libreelec is prone to some very odd behaviour in regards to power buttons. Some devices will turn off entirely, others sleep and others still do nothing.
My LE installation has decided that my device should trigger the power menu and sleep in the same instant, also that sleep cannot be woken by anything, requiring a hard reset.
How do I make libreelec function correctly in this regard?
I have tried the steps listed here:
how can i disable PowerOff/Shutdown via IR-Remote?
I like to use only the Shutdown Menu within Kodi, to prevent accidentally shutdowns. This can be a problem with Power ON/OFF Task with Logitech Harmony.
I have it running on my Intel NUC and most of the time i shut it down by pressing the power button.
With LibreElec 8 this works as expected, the mashine shuts down.
With LE9 when i press the power button, kodi just opens the menu where you can select shutdown/restart.
Is it possible to configurate this so the system shuts down when i press the button without prompting?
The only thing i found is overriding the gui button with the shutdown command but when i…
With no result whatsoever. Not even a change of any kind. I have this same remote on my RPi4 also with LE, and that works correctly with no setup.
How do I make libreelec function correctly in this regard? All that should happen when pressing the power button is the power menu should appear. This even worked correctly in Windows; I could sleep and wake the machine as expected with the remote.
Thanks to anyone with advice on this. I am getting ready to dump LE because of this and would like to avoid doing so. Being able to power on/off the device is critical to basic functionality.
