Realtek Audio preventing laptop from sleeping?
Feb. 08, 2020
Seems there's quite a widespread issue with Realtek audio drivers preventing your computer from sleeping. It's mainly an issue when my laptop is running on battery especially with loadshedding, I walk away from my laptop at times and then loadshedding happens and an hour later the laptop still hasn't entered sleep and the battery is getting smashed.
Anyone experienced this and managed to find a work around?
I've tried powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER for the Realtek driver but that doesn't seem to help.
