If you have configured the backend shutdown command to be your
suspend-to-RAM script, then the backend is probably getting confused
when your script returns (i.e. when the system wakes from STR). I found
I needed to make a really minor hack to the source, or the backend
doesn't run the shutdown script again because it still thinks it's
For the 0.20 fixes version from SVN, the hack looks like:
--- programs/mythbackend/scheduler.cpp (revision 12638)
+++ programs/mythbackend/scheduler.cpp (working copy)

+ idleSince = QDateTime();
@@ -1596,6 +1597,8 @@
// and now shutdown myself
+ m_isShuttingDown = false;
This should be pretty self explanatory is you're a C coder, but I guess
isn't much use if you don't want to modify the source.
