    Pc wont sleep after streaming

    Hi all first post, this is driving me nuts, I use wmp12 to share and stream all my movies to an android box up stairs using upnp, connected with rj45, works great, have prevent idel to sleep set in power options for media this also works great, but when im finished streaming, wmpntwk.exe continues to run and prevents sleep, there was a fix in win 7 to change the power flags for wmpntwk.exe but have found nothing for windows 8, have been using sleepless it works well and will put pc to sleep when it dosnt detect a pre set upload speed, so when I stop streaming after 30 min pc will sleep, but this program wont allow monitor to sleep so im worried about screen burn, why is something that should be simple so difficult stop streaming turn off wmpntwk.exe
