Windows 10 Wont enter sleep mode with Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick plugged in.

I ran into this problem a while back as no matter what i did my PC would enter sleep mode.  i tried everything;

  • bios settings
  • windows power saver settings
  • driver updates

Turns out it was due to having the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick plugged in which i might add is a superb Joystick for Flight Simulator 2020.

Geforce Experience Bug:

Turned out, there is a bug in nVIDIA experience, down in the Windows driver level that would prevent the system from being idle, if you have a joystick plugged in (the article goes a bit deeper into details, it is very interesting if you are a software development related kind of person).

TL:DR , if you have nVIDIA GPU + nVIDIA GeForce Experience installed + have any kind of joystick plugged into the system , Windows won’t be able to sleep/turn screen off automatically until either:

  1. You turn off nVIDIA GeForce Experience in-game overlay.

  2. You unplug ALL joysticks off your system.

PSA: if GeForce Experience is enabled and joysticks are plugged in, Windows can’t automatically turn off screen / go to sleep. This is critical if you are using an OLED screen for your simpit.
