Plex Question

My Tivo Bolt has Plex as an App. It seems to stutter on playing music from my MacBook Pro. However if I go to the computer and I am active, and actually open the Plex app, as opposed to just having it start at startup, it seems to play the music just fine.

What am I missing, should I always have the Plex App open on the MacBook Pro, Obviously it acts as a server, but maybe just saying open the app at startup is not enough?

My issue with Plex is to make sure I wake up the computer when it sleeps. I don’t want it running 24/7 so was able to download an app that wakes on lan request. Works fine.

Properly setting up the Desktop and Screen Saver, and the Energy Saver preferences should be all that is needed.

I have a Desktop and Screen Saver set up to put the display to sleep at a "hot corner", and Energy Saver set up to not put the computer to sleep when the display is off. It also allows wake for Wi-Fi access.
