    Hello Jason
    I just ran the Flirc Util command again and I got something new, I have enclosed the results below:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc>flirc_util.exe device_log
    <1>malloc_addblock(49): Heap Block: 0x20001FAC - 0x20002FFF (4k)
    <3>init_modules(419): Module Load Error: &module = 0x0000EA80
    <3>log_output_init(42): no log hw found
    <3>init_modules(419): Module Load Error: &module = 0x0000EB10
    <3>ir_finished(55): too many edges
    <3>ir_finished(55): too many edge
    The last two lines have never occured before.
    Thanks

    Hello Jason
    There is no additional software installed for the Logitech Keyboard, I just plug in the Adapter and it just works.
    Thanks

    Hello Jason
    If I unplug the Flirc from the HTPC when it is Sleeping it does not Wake, however, on my Desktop if I unplug the Flirc while it is Sleeping it does Wake.
    These two computers are not the same hardware.
    The Desktop PC is based on a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3P, Intel Q9650 Processor, AMD graphics card and is running Windows 10 Pro
    My HTPC is based on the ASUS H110I-Plus, Intel Core i7 6700 and using the on board Graphics (Intel 530).
    Thanks

    Hello Yawor
    I always prefer the Pro Editions as I prefer to have access to all the features and tools as I need them.
    Thanks

    Hello Jason
    Now I feel guilty for wasting your time :)
    Very interesting though that this seems so wide spread.
    I just wonder why it seems to work fine on my Desktop PC with Windows 10 Pro and not on Windows 10 Home.
    Also, I am able to Wake the HTPC with the Logitech Keyboard so it does not seem to be an issue where everything is affected which makes troubleshooting the issue so much more difficult.
    Hardware wise my HTPC has an Intel Core i7 6700 and I am using the internal Graphics (Intel 530).
    All Drivers are up to date as of today.
    I just checked the price to upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro and Microsoft is wanting £119 for the upgrade, this is via the Activation Tab in Windows 10 Home.
    Unfortunately that is too much at the moment but I will upgrade as soon as I can as I hate the Home Editions.
    Thanks

    Hello Jason
    I thought Sleep and Suspend were the same?
    I have tried from Sleep and from Hibernate.
    I am unable to Wake from either.
    Each time I need to use the Logitech Keyboard to Wake the PC.
    I unplugged the Flirc from my HTPC (Windows 10 Home x64) and plugged it into my Desktop PC (Windows 10 Pro x64) and it works every time, Sleeping and Waking.
    Could there be an issue with using the Flirc with Windows 10 Home since it works with Windows 10 Pro and also with the Ubuntu Live USB?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    I had some spare time and since there is very little installed on my HTPC I decided to perform a Reset of Windows 10.
    Unfortunately, after the Reset the Flirc was still unable to Wake the computer (putting it to Sleep works every time), however, the Ubunto Live USB continues to work perfectly, able to Sleep and Wake the PC every time.
    I tested the Flirc before I installed anything extra such as Plex etc. to make sure I had a bare Windows 10 installation.
    Just a little more information, hopefully it will help in some way.
    Also, I tried the 4.0.16 FW and still have the issue.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    A bit of additional information.
    I tried Booting my PC in Safe Mode and even then I am unable to Wake the PC using the Flirc.
    Hope this helps.

    Hello Jason
    I have attached a text file exported from USB Tree Viewer that shows information concerning the Flirc on my system such as Windows Driver versions etc.
    I do not know if it would be useful to you but if it is then good, if not then just ignore it.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    Something new this morning.
    I used the Keyboard to Wake my computer (Flirc would not Wake it) and after it was on the Remote would not work.
    After checking in Device Manager the items related to the Flirc under 'Human Interface Devices' all had the error stating that no Drivers were loaded for the Device.
    This is the first time this error has occurred.
    I unplugged the Flirc, Deleted all the associated Devices in Device Manager, Rebooted and plugged in the Flirc after which the Flirc worked again, no Wake but the Device was recognised, the Drivers loaded and the Remote worked again.
    I am still using 4.0.15.
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    As far as Windows Configuration is concerned there is nothing special done to it, just the basics for Windows 10.
    Let me know if you need any more information.

    Hello Yawor
    Thanks for the offer.
    I have managed to create the Bootable USB for Ubunto and have been able to Boot the HTPC with it successfully.
    I have tested the Flirc and I am able to successfully put the HTPC to Sleep and also Wake it using my Harmony One Remote every time I have tried.
    Now, the question is, what does this prove?
    It would seem that the hardware, Flirc, USB Ports, BIOS etc. are all good so what would this point to, an issue with Windows 10 or?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    Thanks.
    There may be a delay in trying this week but I will post my findings as soon as I get the chance.

    Hello Jason
    Right, Linux it is.
    I have found the download for the ubunto desktop iso and will be able to create a Bootable USB without issue, however, how do I go about using the Flirc with it?
    Sorry, but in my 35 years of using computers I have never used linux :(
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jason
    I agree, it makes no sense.
    Also, I am using Windows 10 Home on the HTPC when I prefer the Pro Editions as there are no restrictions or missing features.
    I have been doing some more testing and for some unknown reason I am now able to Wake the computer with 4.0.15.
    And now it has stopped working again.
    I really do not understand this.
    Would you recommend doing a Windows Reset first or trying the Ubunto on a USB Stick?
    Either way, I am going to wait until I receive the Bluetooth Adapter so that I can use my keyboard again.
    Really sorry about all this.
