What decides your computer is idle? When you're reading information on screen, is that not considered idle (in regards to your computer)? This may complicate what you want, or you'll have to keep moving the mouse or similar. To answer you though, I think what you're after is to simply make your PC sleep when it is idle. When the computer sleeps, it should ...

I had trouble getting VLC to play when inputting the location of my file as well. I then opened the sftp in my file browser and double-clicked the video to launch it in VLC, it worked fine. I checked what the URL looks like under the playlist properties and it is formatted as: /run/user/1000/gvfs/sftp:host=HOSTNAME/PATH/TO/FILE.EXT Where you would need ...

Say you have the task set to run at 8:00am, and you wake at 7:30am instead. One possible solution could be: Create a shortcut that runs as admin and disables the task using schtasks /change /disable /tn "taskname". You can assign a keyboard shortcut to it of course to make it easy to invoke. Create a second task that runs at 8:01am daily and re-enables the ...

First, if I'm up in time, the only way to stop the alarm is to shut down the computer (since the task runs whether I'm logged in or not, I have to shut it all the way down). Second, the file only plays one time, it doesn't continue. One way to fix this could be to make your script into a service. This way if you got up early you could just go in to the ...

You might want to look at other video options in VLC settings. Try using xvideo for output first. glx might be worth trying if xvideo doesn't work, but I think that's what's causing your problem in the first place. After those two, keep cycling through the list and trying to play your video. Though since it's segfaulting, there are so many other things it ...

You can only specify where to put tray. You have no power which icon goes where (or blacklist an icon like in unity). You could specify on which monitor (or even bar) the tray have to be (as I understand correctly only on one bar the tray can show icons). There is possible race condition so I suggest to specify on which bar You want and/or don't want a ...

This is a direct problem with one application. If you can't find any other report about this problem, you should try to contact the application support (forums, bug reports, IRC, etc) In this special case, it can be a problem in the vlc or in the Xorg or in the graphic card drivers. If it is powerful enough for locking the machine, i would suspect the ...

Replace NRK with ...

Yes, it should, so long as it's not an encrypted VOB in which case it can't be played away from the original disc. As an alternative you could try Media Player Classic Home Cinema. You might want to install the ffdshow codec as well since this hasn't as many builtin decoders as vlc. But it should play vobs on its own. Portable version, won't change any ...
