    Yesterday I had scheduled my Hauppauge PVR card to record the Superbowl
    game. In the past I've always left the power of my pc on why I had programs
    scheduled to record. However, this time in the interest of conserving power
    I decided to put the power in the standby mode. Unfortunetly when I went to
    look for the recorded video file today apparently the game was never
    recorded. I was under the impression that once it became time for the PVR
    to start recording, the PC would wake up from the standby mode. Is this
    what was suppose to happen? Maybe I'm not understanding the purpose of the
    standby mode to well. In the future would I just be better off leaving the
    power on?
    Thanks in advance.
