Client won't go into Sleep mode or turn display off

6 posts in this topic

My server will sleep and turn the display off after inactivity, but my client machine won't. I have screen saver synchronization on. Both are Windows 10 machines.

I have this issue too on Win 10 Anniversary update client that connects to a win10 host - removed the product and power settings returned to normal.

Same here. Is there a setting that can be changed to allow a client to still go to sleep if desired?

I have this same problem on Windows 10 client, I'm running 1.8.5. In fact I've had it for a while but only just identified Synergy as the culprit having run "powercfg /requests" from the command line.

 

I' identified and also fixed the issue by following this guide http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/32 ... ndows.html.

 

I had to make a few goes to get the override working. Just make sure "synergyc.exe SYSTEM" appears under [PROCESS] when you run powercfg -requestsoverride to be sure you're good to go. :D

The requestsoverride worked for me with a little more tweaking. It was showing up as Display and System for me.

 

Click on Start and type in Command and right click on the entry and select "Run as Administrator"

Type in the following command to allow the system to sleep, even if Synergy is running

 

powercfg -requestsoverride PROCESS synergyc.exe DISPLAY SYSTEM

 

You can verify it appears in the list of overrides with this command

 

powercfg /requestsoverride

 

[sERVICE]

 

[PROCESS]

synergyc.exe DISPLAY SYSTEM

 

[DRIVER]
