Windows 7 wont Sleep Pt3
Posted on 2011-10-20
I received help from an expert called Kenmcse1969 in connection with my Windows 7 won't sleep when I use the Power saver to put my PC to sleep after a few hours. He gave me some commands to determine what was keeping my PC awake.
The command, powercfg -requests, results in the following:
[DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0892&SUBSYS
An audio stream is currently in use.
I have tested this and it would appear that the Realtek driver is indeed preventing the PC from going to sleep.
Is there a way to make the Power saver kill the service so that PC can go to sleep?
