Alpha Won't Let Computer Sleep
I am using Windows 10, Intel X9, NVIDIA 2080 TI, and 3 Acer 32 screens in a surround setup with X-Plane 11. When I walk away from the computer I usually want it to sleep after 15 minutes of inactivity.
This does not work when the Alpha is connected. Right now I just disconnect it to allow sleep. Anyone notice this?
Regarding the mounting I used the adjusters and the Alpha is firmly affixed to the desktop. But, I do find the pitch switches hard to operate.
I do appreciate the responsiveness of the Alpha Yoke - pitch and roll work great for me. I tried a couple of Logitech solutions on my journey and found the dead spots unacceptable.
Please hurry with the Bravo!
This issue is important to me. How can I get to technical support. Upon further research I have discovered that when looking at this device under device manager I see that the box "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" is greyed out. The device driver shown is a generic MS driver dated 6/21/2006 version 10.0.18362.175.
Tech Support, please look into this.

Just wondered have you tried turning the leds on the yoke off to see if it's sleeps then. It must be a software issue on the computer or a conflict as it sleeps with it plugged in for me. if it was the yoke surely it would do it for all.
I tested the possibility of the cockpit lighting interfering. I turned it off and still had the same problem.
What MS driver are you using? I am using Microsoft, 6/21/2006, 10.0.18362.175? Do you have something different?
Also, the box in Power Management in the Device Manager does not ”allow the computer to turn of this device to save power” the box is greyed out. Do you have the same setting?
Are your settings different?
Thanks in advance,
My bad ignore everything I said. I thought by sleep the screen turning off. Your completely correct My pc will also not go into sleep mode I tried it out as I don't have it set to sleep usually.
I have the same device driver and it says it is the latest version and it is also greyed out for for the option to allow the pc to turn the device off.
Have you sent honeycomb an email?
Just to confirm I have the same problem and after reading this topic realized it only started since I have connected the Alpha Yoke.
I have a similar issue; the red panel lights stay illuminated once PC is shut down. Below is the response I received from Honeycomb.
