My screen will go to sleep after a minute or so regardless if I am working on the controller or not :hmmm:

I have my screen setting on "Never" sleep :smoker:

This started occurring after recent updates--it never happened before :fku:

I have contacted support several weeks ago, but I have yet to receive a response :worthy:

Is anyone else having this issue?

Is it on daylight or night?

I had this problem with the Live when I setted it at Night. But was gone when I switched back to Daylight

I’ve been having the same problem with my MPC X since updating to 2.2.1. It happens in controller mode only for me. :hmmm: I put several bug reports into the software team, but of course they don’t respond back.

1 year later and numerous updates and the sleep issues are continuing.

I’m in controller mode—day setting.

Happens in the software too. There are settings in there to disable the screensaver for certain conditions, and none of them work properly. I can be sitting here in the middle of playing back a song or working on the Studio hardware itself editing a sample or something and the display on my Mac will go to sleep while Im in the middle of working. Its like the controls from the Studio don't register at all with the Mac like 'NO SOMEONE TOUCHED A KEY DONT GO TO SLEEP'. Have to wiggle the mouse to wake it up every time.

And then of course, there have been a couple times where I had to leave, left the MPC Software up and running, came home an hour or two later, and my screen is still wide awake where I left it. Do they even know how to implement basic OS level features like that? It doesn't even respond to normal Mac OS system stuff like double clicking the title bar to maximize the window and a few hot keys as well. I have Qt and GTK based apps that integrate better with the OS.
