ADMIN NOTE:
This thread is now closed. If you have a question regarding the SleepyHead software package, please go HERE.

To download the SleepyHead software, go here:

Finally installed SH on my laptop. When I open SleepyHead, it says there is a shiny new version 0.9.2-1 available. When I upgrade, I get an error. Something went wrong with unzipping. Ok, what am I doing wrong?

I had exactly the same problem. I suspect that it is because my PC has a 64-bit processor and SleepyHead is written for a 32-bit processor. If you find a solution, please let me know!

Ah, I didn't think of that. Me too, my laptop is 64 bit too.

You can try right-clicking on the launch icon and choose "run as administrator".

Yes, right click the .exe file. Choose "run as administrator". Open the program and it will update. This is the only time you have to do that.

Ahhh, Paula you're the greatest! Thank you too Sleepster.

SH seems to run ok with Linux (Kubuntu 12.04) but have not been able to test it with any other than some Zeo data.
When my S9 gets in I'll be working with it a LOT!

No, that isn't it. I say this because SleepyHead works fine for my PC, even when updated. Make absolutely sure that the program isn't running in the background or something and that ALL update files are added. That being said, the next time you boot up or log in, try copying the files over again - make it the first thing you do, which should help ensure that it is NOT running (unless you have it start up when you log in). That being said, consider what error messages, if any, appear when you start the program and post them here. All I can say for sure is that SleepyHead DOES work on my machine.
AND -- if it worked before on a 64-bit OS then it will (should) continue to work when it is updated - make sense? Oh-jeez

Maybe. Seems as though we'd have heard about it by now if the patch doesn't work on the 64-bit version of Windoze.

Original, online auto update, and patch version 0.9.2-3 all work fine on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit for me.
