FIXED METABOX DOESN’T GO TO STANDBY OR SLEEPApril 22, 2018 / by Marco / Categories : Business, Windows
After a few months of struggling with this issue, I managed to fix the problem. The issue was the Metabox wouldn’t go to standby or sleep mode after x minutes that was set on the Power Settings in Windows 10. I basically changed all the settings in the Power and Sleep Additional Power Settings and nothing would fix it.
The fix was to use a command line I never knew existed (I’ve been using windows since Windows 3.11).
The command was:
You have to use that in an Administrator command prompt. When I entered that command it returned the following:
C:\Windows\system32>powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio" SYSTEM
[DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_1220&SUBSYS_15589501&REV_1000\4&27ae6d24&0&0001)
An audio stream is currently in use.
So the Realtek High Definition Audio showed that it was in use and needed to be removed. To do this:
powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio" SYSTEM
Check again and it’s now removed. Yuppie!!!
