USB-UIRT won't wake Windows 7 from sleep

Postby RandomEGUser » Tue Jun 22, 2010 3:12 pm

I know this isn't an EventGhost problem, but this forum seems pretty active and helpful.

I cannot get USB-UIRT to take my cpu out of sleep mode in Windows 7.

I have the lrnhelper utility, and programmed the buttons I want to use. The USB-UIRT box lights up whenever I press a button and the PC is sleeping, but nothing happens. The keyboard and mouse will still take the PC out of sleep mode. I tried using old vista drivers posted in another thread at the USB-UIRT forums - that didn't help. Those forums are pretty slow as well.

Has anyone here been able to get it to wake Windows 7? Any help is appreciated.

You might check your bios, there may be a setting to enable/disable something like "wake from USB". This is most likely a BIOS issue rather than a software issue.

It sounds like your usb-uirt is still receiving power while your computer is sleeping, but if nothing else works you might want to check for a +5vsb jumper on the motherboard.

thanks, and I'll check that Typhoid, but Windows XP (x86) has no problem waking from sleep, could it be because I'm running Win 7 x64?

Please check http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1218032, post 4. The problem is with the Windows 7 driver. However, it was said that the vista driver may cause bsod on Windows 7 with 8GB+ memory. I guess most htpcs do not need that much memory.
