SIRIL went to sleep ?

Hi There,

I have been using SIRIL beta 0.99.4 for about a week or so now and found something odd today.

I was processing a stack of 200 lights, 30 darks, 30 biases using the “DSLR_Preprocessing_NoFlat.ssf” script. It stated as usual

17:17:07: ############################################
17:17:07: # Script for Siril 0.9
17:17:07: # January 2019
17:17:07: # © Cyril Richard
17:17:07: # Modified by Colmic
17:17:07: # DSLR_preprocessing v1.2
17:17:07: ########### PREPROCESSING SCRIPT ###########

But about 20 minutes into processing the batch SIRIL seemed to have gone to sleep for 2 hours. I have included the processing time a file before and after as well below.

And this happened again several times

and again

and again

02:34:54: Reading FITS: file r_pp_light_00075.fit, 3 layer(s), 5496x3672 pixels

Any reason for this ?

I don’t have an older version of SIRIL to test this with, but if the developers want me to I will download and test.

Full log is attached ( as .txt )

This is strange yes.
First you have to know that the scripts you are using are deprecated, but that do not explain your issue. I would say your OS was very busy…
@vinvin

Hi, what OS is this running on, how do you start siril with the script, how did you add the time?

I am on MacOS High Sierra
iMac 21.5" , Mid 2011
2…5gh Core i5
32GB memory
SSD drive
( Ok, don’t laugh! )

I start Siril as usual and the select the script from the “script” menu.
The time is directly from Siril Log.

Hope that helps

I did not know its deprecated. I had the devils own time finding the script and installing it. I thought you just did not add it in the Beta.

Why would you deprecate this ? It’s a really useful script.

Because new scripts replace it.

Do you use homebrew? Or bundle?

Also check your power settings, maybe the computer goes to sleep after some inactivity.

Bundle. Downloaded the disk image file for mac

Ahh… did not think about that, since it’s an iMac. :man_facepalming:

I checked and it’s set to sleep after 10 mins.

Anyway, I changed the setting and will try run the new scripts to see if they worked.
