Your reply brings up way more possibilities than I thought about. Your assumption was correct, I am using windows 10 on my dedicated music computer, I will look at some of these areas you mentioned.
I am currently using the "TapinRadio
" app on the same computer for my internet radio listening, this app works well transitioning from the Sleep to Wake modes, it also plays the music left in the buffer when the computer was put to sleep while automatically re-connecting to the radio station URL to resume station playback (different song) without any human intervention. This is what I was hoping for from Music Bee and I figured if TapinRadio performed this way that Music Bee should be able to do the same thing on the same OS.
This is not a typical scenario and probably is not tested during most software development, Raimersoft (Tapinradio) had the same problem with this issue but after I pointed it out they fixed it.
I don't know if the Windows team intentionally changes system settings after an update (thinking they know best) or if this issue is an over site in the middle of a very challenging task, at one time media streaming was shut off every time Windows was updated, they finally fixed this.
