I know this is somewhat related to Windows too and not just Cubase, but when I’m running Cubase I cannot turn my pc monitor off (when taking a break from producing). I turn it off, on my laptop it’s fn+f5, and after a few seconds it’s going back on because, I’m assuming, Cubase is using my audio card in the background and it turns back on the monitor.
As an alternative I even put the pc in sleep mode, but then when I wake it up there’s another problem, I’m getting an error from the e-licenser, that it was turned off and Cubase cannot recognize it, and the result is that Cubase totally freezes, and I have to manually shut it down and then restore the project.
Have anyone encountered this? The only solution is to exit Cubase whenever I want to take a break, or to keep my monitor on, both are frustrating
EDIT: In my laptop I cannot turn down the brightness all the way, that could have been a workaround for this
Thanks a lot in advance for any help
