Another HTPC wmc7 problem

My HTPC had Vista before and I did a new install of Windows 7 RC. All is fine except when wmc wakes up and records a TV show it doesn't go back to sleep. I know it is just a simple setting, but I can't figure it out. Any suggestions?

I was hoping that windows 7 would work without it. but it looks like I have to use the MC Standby tool (Beta version 09.096) to make my HTPC sleep and wake up like it should. (It's freeware)

Hello movienut50,

Go to Start > Control Panel > Power Options, click the choose what the power button does and check the box that says Don't require a password.

I had already did that, but thanks:)
