    C:\windows\system32>powercfg -requests
    DISPLAY:
    None.

    SYSTEM:
    [DRIVER] USB Audio Device (USB\VID_05A7&PID_1020&MI_00\7&31309cba&0&0000)
    An audio stream is currently in use.

    The above is preventing my system from sleeping. I am aware of the requestsoverride command but having difficulty utilizing it for this specific device (Swarm Software for Roccat Ryos keyboard).

    Any tips most welcome

    Did you use the device full identifier with the command-line?[/QUOTE]

    C:\windows\system32>powercfg /requestsoverride DRIVER "USB Audio Device (USB\VID_05A7&PID_1020&MI_00\7&31309cba&0&0000)" SYSTEM

    But this as NO effect

    It should go like this without the parenthesis:

    powercfg -requestsoverride DRIVER "USB Audio Device USB\VID_05A7&PID_1020&MI_00\7&31309cba&0&0000" SYSTEM

    Perhaps you would have to disable it at the system configuration.
