Hi Art,

I wish someone would create an app to periodically disable the USB sleep state.

And don’t forget to periodically recheck those USB ports on Device Manager.  Windows does occasionally turn them off.  On Rich’s post I rechecked and found 6 that were in sleep mode.

Thank you, Rich

Have you changed the settings in Windows to prevent it from shutting down USB ports to save power?

See <> for a description of the steps you need to take to do this.

If you have already done this and if a Windows update hasn't interfered with your settings, then something else is going on. Try using one RTTY decoder program at a time to see if you can isolate it to one of the programs.

I also experienced the N1MM+ shutdowns several times similar to N0TA.
It happened while operating rtty during the JARTS test, requiring shutting down all the decoder windows so I could make a clean startup.
It also happened while away from the rig/computer for an hour or so. Like it was timing out
