Summary0000995: File Daemon Prevents Power Saving
DescriptionWhen the Windows Bareos file daemon is installed, Windows won't get into power saving mode any more.
Steps To ReproduceConfigure Windows to get into hibernate mode after some time
Install File Daemon
Windows will never get into any power saving mode
Additional InformationIf I enter the following command as an administrator in a Windows 10 command line window:

C:\powercfg -requests

then I get - among other lines - the following result:

[SERVICE] \Device\HarddiskVolume3\Program Files\Bareos\bareos-fd.exe (Bareos-fd)

which probably means that it is the Bareos file daemon preventing Windows from getting in any power saving mode.

I think this might make sense when there is currently a backup running, but not, when the Service is inactive (the little icon is not blinking).

The problem is still the same with release 18.2.5.

Some additional information which I found out today:
If the bareos-tray-monitor is running, Windows 10 (current release as of today) will never get into sleep mode.
If I close the tray monitor, Windows behaves as expected.

I can always reproduce this behavior. This is definitely a bug.

I guess what happens here is the following:
1. Tray monitor keeps a connection to the filedaemon open
2. Filedaemon inhibits power-saving as long as there is an open connection

If that is the case, then this is indeed a bug.

No feedback on testing without tray-monitor, obsolete version.
