Windows 7: WIN7 loses Game Controller Calibration when computer "sleeps"

WIN7 loses Game Controller Calibration when computer "sleeps"

Hi all, first post, did a search couldn't find an answer for this.

Running Win7 Pro 32 bit. I have a CH Products USB Pro Throttle, Fighterstick and Rudders hooked up. They recognize and calibrate correctly and you can then use them.

However, if you leave the computer running overnight and it goes into standby or sleep mode the controllers lose their calibration. They are still present in Hardware/Devices but moving them shows no response.

To get them working again I have to disable them and then do the Troubleshoot and let Win7 "fix" them. Then calibrate and all is good until the next time the computer goes to standby mode.

Any ideas?

Maybe try updating the software given with the fighterstick, or contact the manufacture, they will be more than happy to help you out, I really do not think its your windows as windows would really not forget it unless there is a problem, I am 80% sure it could be the driver software given with the stick, I have saw people have similar problems and it was there software given with the stick itself.
