Ready For Sleep

In a series of unfortunate events, we never managed to upload the app to Windows App Store. The process was everything but smooth. There is a number of reasons for why this is unusually complicated, but it all boils down to that using the specific command for probing processes that prevents the computer from entering sleep requires administrator privileges. While it is perfectly possible to make an app and even build a working public executable – this drawback basically makes it virtually impossible to publish it online via Windows Store or similar. Perhaps Universal Windows Apps are easier to make and get published, but these specific Windows apps written in C# that requires anything special must to go through a very complicated signing process that is impossible to debug. We initially thought that the AppX container would work for this but it now seems like a dead end. Project is put on ice for now.
