Have another look at the screen shot and APCC. Does APCC not have Unpark as
being Active choice and Park greyed out (inactive)?
Mike I purposely left it as is for now in case there was a need for remote
login to investigate. In previous occurrences I could indeed park the mount
via the ASCOM Park command but that doesn't help understand the cause of
this situation and offer any solutions so I left it as is after closing the
roof for safety reasons. I had hoped there might be some procedure to try
before resetting things.

This is a recurring problem that I've often blamed on ACP but amdriver says it's parking, and APCC says it is parked.
Your screenshot shows the mount is unparked, with tracking stopped,
according to APCC.
There's no way to know for sure what happened from a screenshot, but because
the mount is not parked, the driver cannot indicate that the mount has

the mount was already in the Park 4 position and had been since 0623. The
last image had downloaded at 0531 and the shutdown script was executed at
0623 if I remember correctly. It was a brief notification from Windows 10
but those were cleared after reading. Not sure if any record is made of
ACP doesn't have a shutdown record as it seems that is made after itshow the mount parked?
as does the ASCOM driver but not APCC. The difference is that ASCOM and APCC
show the mount at the parked position whereas ACP shows what I assume is the
position it was prior to being commanded to park.
So the question is, where is the log jam and who is responsible for thestall? How can I prevent this?
correctly and I have cell signal. It doesn't correct anything. The system is
still in this "Parking"
phase and I'll leave it like that hoping that Bob Denny or othera communication issue where a request is sent and waits forever and if so
why can't there be a reasonable time restriction before another request is
sent or other action is taken?
