PC won't sleep with service running


It seems when the Netcam Studio service is running the PC can’t go into a sleep state.

Is this by design? If so why?

It would be nice for me to set my laptop running Netcam Studio to be able to properly sleep when I close the lid.

Yes it is by design that Netcam Studio prevents computer from going to sleep automatically after periods of inactivity (because most users use Netcam Studio to stream 24/7 and don’t want the pc to shut down) however when the lid is closed the few laptops I have tested where still able to.

You probably have a power settings that allows you to force the PC sleeping when a lib signal is received.
