The screen saver and power settings will not engage. I set to turn off monitors in 1 minute and even if i leave for a hour they are still on. Same with screen saver.
I came across powercfg and ran
and it showed
] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0889&SUBSYS
An audio stream is currently in use.
Okay, so even though I don't have any audio playing, it seems like the Realtek driver is causing the system to basically reset the timer. I tried to disable it by invoking the powercfg device disable wake argument and i get a permissions issue.
powercfg -DEVICEDISABLEWAKE "Realtek High Definition Audio"
You do not have permission to enable or disable device wake.
The issue is that I have ran CMD as administrator and am logged in as an administrator. I am running the latest version of Realtek driver for Windows 7, why would this happen? suggestions on getting this resolved?
