    the plugin does not work with the computer turned off

    hi,
    is it right to think that if the computer is off or the control panel is not active, nothing works?
    is it possible to make the various plug-ins work even with the computer turned off?
    if yes, how?

    Thank you

    Yes, that is correct.

    No. SOME computer MUST be turned on.

    Many people rent a "layer server" to keep their Procon plugins operating. A "layer server" is simply a different computer, somewhere else, which is always running; so that you can turn your computer off.

    I made this mistake when first learning about procon too. It's an external program controlling commands on the server, it doesn't not upload plugins or functions to the server itself. You need to have a layer or an always-on computer available to run it.

    The mobile app doesn't compile and run the plugins. You need the procon client application or a procon layer server running in order for the plugins to operate.
