10.11 Sleep stopped working

Recommended Posts

After the latest update of LaunchBox, Win10 won't put the PC to sleep.

If I just minimize Launchbox (showing the desktop) it goes into sleep with no problem. 

'powercfg /requests' doesn't show anything running.

I found the issue...

I did one change, I turned on the controllers in LaunchBox. This made it so Win10 can't got to sleep when in Launchbox. 

Anyone know how to solve this, would be nice to put PC to sleep when using controllers in LaunchBox when not playing. 

Can't unplug it every time, I have an X-Arcade Tankstick built in to a cabinet.

I think this is just how Windows works. In order to support controllers, we have to poll/read the controllers. That in itself keeps the computer awake. Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about that, that I'm aware of.

There a reason you can't just use the "Sleep" menu item inside of Big Box's main menu to do it?

Oh there is one? I don't have BigBox only LaunchBox...

I understand...

The sleep button sounds good...
