On the one hand, people tell me it should be in such state for games, on the other hand, other people tell me it should be in such state for demos.
If you check the current 3.9.4 beta, the wakeup option is now sticky, so set it to "WU2" for your little demos and forget it.

1. Yes, the STE defaults to another state in v3.9.3, because I was told it's more prevalent on real hardware and because it is compatible with some enhanced games that suppose the state corresponds to "WU1" in Steem SSE. The idea is that the dude checking some games knows less than the one checking some demos.
AtariZoll even uploaded a Steem 3.2 update with this wakestate. I must adapt or be wiped out!

Don't forget that this option is available only under 'advanced' settings. Without the latter, a random state is chosen at cold reset.

I've given up emulating the Atari ST/E, as the only emulator that worked for me with demos 100% until recently was Steem SSE, but it has had various issues with sound and now, with the latest release, you have to specify certain "wait state" values which I haven't got time to determine which is the optimum WS for specific demos. Besides, I only emulated the ST in the first place because I owned one in 1990 for a few months, and I personally hated the AY sound chip in it.
And the author seems to have a massive ego, as he fancies himself something of an action movie star (the SSE literally stands for "Steven Seagal Edition") and the main credits screen lists every single action movie star over the last 30-40 years, instead of any useful contributors.
Nope, as far as I can see, there are no good Atari ST/E emulators out there (Hatari I found far too slow to do things). Maybe put that down to my impatience, but to be frank, I'd rather stick with the systems I knew, mainly Atari 600/800 XL and Amiga A500/A1200.
