maaatt Posted September 21, 2016 Report Share Posted September 21, 2016 Just bought a usb flirc receiver, and here's my versions of stuff:Flirc GUI v1.4.4Flirc driver v188.8.131.52In the GUI, File > Advanced > [x] Sleep Detection is enabled. In Controllers > Full Keyboard, I mapped a signal to the Wake key. When the computer goes to sleep, pressing that button (or any other mapped flirc signal for that matter, e.g. arrow keys, enter, etc.) has no effect whatsoever.So I opened the device manager and looked at libusbK USB Devices > flirc and saw that there was no Power Management tab. Then I looked under Keyboards to see four entries labeled HID Keyboard Device. All four of them have Power Management > [x] Allow this device to wake the computer enabled. I tried disconnecting flirc, and one if the keyboards disappeared. I figured out which of them was flirc's keyboard entry and double-checked that device-wake was enabled (it is).Since none of that worked, I opened PowerShell (x86) as an administrator and ran powercfg -devicequery wake_from_any and saw flirc along with a lot of other device names.Then I ran powercfg -devicequery wake_armed and saw this much shorter list: PS C:\Windows\system32> powercfg -devicequery wake_armed HID Keyboard Device HID-compliant mouse HID Keyboard Device (001) Killer E2400 Gigabit Ethernet Controller HID-compliant mouse (001) HID Keyboard Device (002) HID-compliant mouse (002) HID Keyboard Device (003)I then tried to enable wake for flirc with disappointing results: PS C:\Windows\system32> powercfg -deviceenablewake flirc You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake.(I tried the above with the 32bit PowerShell as well, just in case, but with identical results.)I can't find any settings related to wake from USB in my BIOS, but I enabled Power On By Keyboard (with any key), Power On By Mouse (with any movement), and Platform Power Management for good measure. That said, since I can already wake from suspend by plugging in an actual USB keyboard and pressing any key, so I don't see how any of that would help anyway.Also, for what it's worth, powering on a steam controller does wake the computer from sleep. But I bought this flirc receiver for the sole purpose of being able to wake my computer with my remote control as well, so it'd be really nice if it did that.Can you think of anything I haven't tried?Much appreciated,Matt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
