View Full Version : P8Z68 Sleep Mode Screensaver Windows 10

08-19-2015, 12:24 PM
Greetings, I ran into an issue with my P8Z68 Motherboard and Windows 10.

My pc will not go into sleep mode nor will will it use the screensaver in windows.

Troubleshooting steps.

Ran the powercfg /requests (turned up empty, nothing requesting)
Deleted the home group - Disabled all Media Streaming options to my pc.
Power Options (PC is set to Balanced) - While Sharing Media - Allow Computer to Sleep
Looked over this thread. https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?74379-What-is-your-Windows-10-Q-Code-after-post/page2 - (it resolved the 40 qcode I was receiving and my pc now boots into A0)
Disabled Photos App

If I boot my pc and leave it at a login prompt and have sleep configured to turn off the monitor after so many minutes the monitor will shut off.

Thinking it was some piece of software causing this problem, I ran msconfig and disabled everything non microsoft from startup, as I have several apps that auto start (Chrome, Skype, Steam,, Bnet)

Just asking this forum to see if anybody else has experienced this issue so far. Its very frustrating.

Same issue here on Maximus VI Formula, on fresh install everything worked fine for sure - I did clean install 2 times because of this issue. I'm not sure if it does happen after specific driver install or after Windows Update package.

Glad to know I am not the only one experiencing this issue. I've exhausted my know how in order to troubleshoot and I don't want to have to go through another clean install to figure it all out.

Just a small update, in my case Razer Synapse software was responsible for not letting my PC sleep or turn off display, after uninstall everything is fine. I'll try to reinstall later and do additional tweaking because I need Synapse to configure my keyboard and mice.
