    Asus Amoury Preventing Windows 10 from turning off monitors + Erratic Tracking

    Hey all,

    I just got my Spatha recently and I'm loving it. I updated to the newest beta firmware + newest Amoury and didn't have too many issues that other people were having. The only major issues I'm having now is that Asus Armoury is preventing Windows from turning off the monitors when idling, preventing it from going to sleep, and erratic tracking. I've tried using the mouse with several computers and they all have the same issue. I've also tried the mouse in both wired and wireless modes. Description is as follows:

    Asus Spatha Firmware: 1.62/1.32
    Asus Spatha mode: Wireless
    Asus Armoury version: 10134 & 10207

    Computer 1:
    Windows 10 Pro AU 1607 64-bit
    Intel i7 5930k
    Asus x99 Strix
    Corsair Dominator 32gb 3200mhz
    Samsung 960 EVO m.2

    Computer 2:
    Windows 10 Home AU 1607 64-bit
    Intel i7 820
    Asus Maximus III GENE
    G.Skill Ripjaws 6gb 1600mhz
    Intel SSD (forgot model)

    Computer 3:
    Windows 10 Pro AU 1607 64-bit via bootcamp
    Intel i5 mobile version (forgot model)
    Macbook late 2012
    G.skill 8gb 1600mhz

    Issue 1:
    -When Asus Armoury is installed, regardless if it in running in the background or not, Windows 10 will not turn off the monitor when the system is idling. Even when I manually send the command for the monitors to turn off (via an app called nircmd.exe), the monitors will instantly turn back on. I have tested this with Armoury version 10134 & 10207 AND on 2 other computers. The same issue persists.

    Issue 2:
    -Similar to above, not only does the monitor not turn off, the system will refuse to go to sleep after the designated idle duration. It seems like Asus Amoury is constantly resetting the sleep timer so the computer thinks the system is NOT idle.

    Issue 3:
    -Using the mouse in wireless mode set to 1000mhz polling rate, the mouse will have erratic tracking at regular intervals. Another member was having the same issue with the mouse as well. What happens is that the mouse will track perfectly but then suddenly for 1-2 seconds, the tracking will go out of wack (kind of like the sensitivity being reduced significantly) and then return normal afterwards. This happens suddenly and at regular intervals and makes for a horrible experience as you cannot predict where the mouse will go. When the polling rate is changed back to the default of 500mhz, this issue disappears completely. This should not be a connection issue as the base stand is about ~2-3 inches away from the mouse.

    The tracking issue isn't a big deal as I can live with 500mhz polling rate but as I have set a short timer for when the screen turns off+sleep, not being able to actually perform those actions are killing my experience. I have a fingerprint reader so it is extremely easy to wake the screen/unlock/wake the computer with it.

    Thanks.

    tl;dr: Asus amoury prevents monitors from turning off and going to sleep. Tried on several computers.
