You upgraded manually from OpenElec 3.2.x to 4.0. After the upgrade you are not able to go into standby mode.


The OE / XBMC developers distinguish now between a “real” hard drive (e.g. internal SSD) or using USB sticks or SD cards. On some systems, the sleep mode might be buggy with mobile sticks/cards and is therefore disabled by default.

Unfortunately, this is not mentioned in the GUI anywhere and can be confusing. Under Settings -> Energy Saving, using the Expert view, you see the dropdown button to choose between Shutdown and Hibernate / Sleep, but it is disabled.


You can enable sleep mode again if you add this line to your /storage/.config/

rm /dev/.suspend_disabled
