Sound Keeper v1.3.0 [2022/07/28]

Prevents SPDIF/HDMI digital audio playback devices from sleeping. Uses WASAPI, requires Windows 7+.

To enable autorun, copy soundkeeper.exe into the startup directory (to open it, press Win+R, enter shell:startup, press Enter). To close the program, just mute the Sound Keeper in the Volume Mixer or kill the soundkeeper.exe process.

Features

  • Sound Keeper is fully automatic and doesn't require any user interaction.
  • Sound Keeper can keep sound on many sound outputs simultaneously (e.g. SPDIF and HDMI).
  • Sound Keeper detects new sound outputs on the fly (e.g. when you connected a TV via HDMI).

Settings

  • Default behavior can be changed by changing file name of the Sound Keeper executable.
  • Primary audio output is used by default. Add All to executable file name to enable Sound Keeper on all outputs.
  • Inaudible stream is used by default. Add Zero to executable file name to use stream of digital zeroes (like it was in v1.0.0).

If the default inaudible stream doesn't help, try the new Sine stream type. It generates a sine wave, and can be customized. There are two parameters: F (frequency) and A (amplitude). The value goes right after the parameter character. For example, add SineF10A5 to executable file name to generate 10Hz sine wave with 5% amplitude. Low frequencies (below 20Hz) and high frequencies (above 20000Hz) with low amplitude (up to 10%) are inaudible.

What's new in v1.3.0

  • Fluctuate is 1 fluctuation per second by default. Frequency can be changed using the F parameter.
  • Periodic playing of a sound (parameters L and W) with optional fading (parameter T).
  • New White, Brown, and Pink noise signal types.
  • Self kill command is added. Run soundkeeper kill to stop running Sound Keeper instance.
  • Analog switch was added. It works as the opposite of Digital.
  • Ignores remote desktop audio device (this feature can be disabled using the Remote switch).
  • New OpenOnly mode that just opens audio output, but doesn't stream anything.
  • New NoSleep switch which disables PC sleep detection (Windows 7-10).
  • Work as a dummy when no suitable devices found.
  • Sound Keeper shouldn't prevent PC from automatic going into sleep mode on Windows 10.
  • The program is not confused anymore when PC auto sleep is disabled on Windows 10.
  • The workaround that allowed PC to auto sleep had to be disabled on Windows 11.

Known issue: streaming audio prevents automatic sleep mode

When a program streams any audio (even silence), the system don't go into sleep mode automatically. Sound Keeper uses the NtPowerInformation(SystemPowerInformation, ...) function to retrieve time when system is going to sleep, and disables itself right before this time. On Windows 7, it works perfectly. Windows 10 waits for 2 minutes more after any sound was streamed, so the PC goes into sleep mode after 2 minutes when Sound Keeper disabled itself. For some reason, Windows 11 always reports that the system is going to sleep in 0 seconds. So, the workaround had to be disabled on this OS until a better solution is found. You can try to use the powercfg to workaround this issue at the system level. Details →

    Sameh,

    i got this error msg after some time of playing

    DMT - Unhandled Non-UI Thread Exception
    Object reference not set to an instance if an object

    It is not related to the Sound Keeper. Seems like DMT is Dual Monitor Tools.

    Sameh

    sorry VEG
    its related tp Dual monitors yea , delete that msg

    -----

    now the issue that i facing is that the soundkeeper shuts off the audio stream when the dsiplay monitor turned off
    i setup the auto shutoff of the display after 1 min
    after i move the mouse , the display back on and the sound back to the sound bar

    using sound bar samsung Q700A
    windows 11

    I noticed something interesting in the previous log:

    08:05:28.236 [ 5736] ERROR: Unrecognized sample format: 0xFFFE.

    I updated the debug version to output more details about this (it should print a GUID of the sample format instead of 0xFFFE). Could you please try to reproduce this again with the newer version and show what it outputs? It seems like one of your audio outputs uses some non-standard audio format.

    Sameh,

    this error doesn't happen when i choose non dolby atmos quality format

    Oh, thank you. I checked if this case is handled properly. Seems like it treats it as 16-bit output in this case, and it should be treated as 24-bit. I'll add support of this output format in the next version.

    do u aware of the sound stop when the display auto sleep activated ? , is this something can be bypassed with the app , or should i search for a method to stop the windows from shutting off the hdmi port
    the sound stop on the hdmi port only , its still played on my analog 3.5 speaker

    As far as I know, HDMI is designed in a way that it always turns off both audio and video simultaneously. So, Sound Keeper won't help to overcome it anyhow. If your PC has optical output (S/PDIF) and soundbar has optical input, I would recommend use it instead of passing audio through HDMI. S/PDIF is also digital (same as HDMI audio).

    Sameh, I updated the debug version, now it should try to get bit-depth of output format even when it is not a PCM format. Could you please check if it logs correct bit-depth in your case when Dolby Atmos is enabled? It should still complain about unrecognized format (because it is not usual PCM), but at the end of the line it should show that it is 24-bit audio anyway.

    Well, it's weird. According to the Microsoft Docs, the 0000000c-0cea-0010-8000-00aa00389b71 GUID is IEC61937_DOLBY_MLP that should be 24-bit. But for some reason it is reported as 16-bit by the system. I'll need to think if it's better to hardcode all known compressed formats with their expected bit-depths instead of relying on values provided by OS.

    Or maybe it is always reported as 16-bit for compressed formats. I'll probably treat all of them as 24-bit by default just in case.

    Sorry, I'm on vacation now, so won't be able to look into it. I'll be back in January. In any case, it is worth to mention approximate timing when your soundbar and PC went to sleep and when it woke up so I could correlate it with the logs.

    i don't see any 'exe', just images and code .

    so what file do i have to choose to have it installed?
    i'd like to send a screenshot but that's impossible

    peter klein, there are just 2 exe files and a txt file in the archive, there are no images nor code. Most probably you downloaded the source code instead of binary distribution.

    Sameh, I meant not your settings, but specific timestamp in the log when you turned on your monitor and soundbar, and Sound Keeper didn't generate any sound. Or this moment is actually at the end of the log and it stuck at "Restarting..."? Can you reproduce this issue?

    The WARNING: Buggy power information. is expected on Windows 11. This version of Windows doesn't provide information how much time is left until PC goes into sleep mode, so Sound Keeper doesn't monitor if it should stop to output any audio right before PC is going to sleep automatically. This trick is required because by default any sound prevents Windows from automatic sleep.

    yes its at this moment : 13:27:41.544 [28280] Restarting...

    the screens was off , and at this moment i back and i noticed that the log stuck at this info

    i will try to reopen the logger again and reproduce it and i will inform u
    but i didn't notice it from this moment
    ---

    by the way , the soundkeeper doesn't prevent my pc from automatic sleeping

    Oh, that's really weird that it stuck there, seems like there is nothing that could stop execution at that place. Please tell if you can reproduce this issue. If you can, we could try to figure out what's wrong there by adding more logging to that place.

    Well, that is really weird. It looks like one of WASAPI cleanup calls is stuck. Could you please make a dump of the Sound Keeper process when it is in such state? You can do it from the standard Task Manager. Right click on the process of the Sound Keeper, Create dump file.

    Seems like I found a potential deadlock in WASAPI related code that might be caused by one of small optimizations. I updated the debug version where I temporarily disabled it. Please check if it helps.

    BTW, is it easy to reproduce the issue for you? Does it require a few attempts, or it happens always?

    it happens too much , every time i return to the pc .. it happens about 80% of the time

    If the latest change helps to solve it, I'll release a new version with a fix.

    testing it 3-4 days to totally check the fix
    i will comment back if the error occur again
