My Question or Issue

 

Hi,

 

I would like to know if the Spotify Linux application has or are there any plans to provide a power-management inhibit functionality to prevent turning off an external monitor when music is playing on it through HDMI for example?

 

The current situation is that I use my monitor speakers to play music and when I make a break, I leave the music playing on the monitor, but after the idle period power management kicks in and the monitor is turned off and the music switches to the internal laptop speakers until I move the mouse and lit up the monitor again.


Video players like Totem have the functionality to inhibit power management when a movie is being played on the monitor. Is there functionality in Spotify to do the same when audio is being played on the external monitor?

Regards,

Robert
