    I've been away from my computer for the last 3 months since being in hospital. I come back and now sleep mode isn't working.

    I've been following this guide - https://thegeekpage.com/fix-windows-10-sleep-mode-not-working-solved/

    I've typed "powercfg -requests" into cmd and got this -

    Does that mean the sound driver is causing the system to stay awake?

    Also there is this command
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...wercfg-command-line-options#option_sleepstudy

    As for your question it looks like soundcard prevents "the computer from automatically powering off the display or entering a low-power sleep mode".
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...powercfg-command-line-options#option_requests

    But it can be overridden with command: "powercfg /requestsoverride System"

    audio stream is not enough to prevent idling to sleep.

    there are other things that can keep windows awake which will not appear in powercfg, WMP, Steam with certain xbox controllers, etc.

    my Ifyoo gaming pro contolter which "360" contoler still to this on every windows build since 20h1 will cause windows to never go to sleep less that 2009 360 drivers are used. anything new and it would just never let systems sleep while connected. I have since replace said controller with 8bitdo Xbox pro 2 controller which is which uses xbox gaming device driver, and couldnt be happier, no driver issues causing no sleep and the long standing issue i had with pc contolers have highly inaccurate analong stick (deadzone doing circle and transitioning to a diagonal) for aim is fixed

    Dont know why gamepad rumbles once every time windows hit desktop though.

    The problem resolved itself after a Windows update. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
