Windows 11 Users - is it a problem to go into Sleep and or Lockscreen?

Is this still a problem in 2024?

I just remember on Windows 7, computer going into sleep could cause all sorts of haywire problems with licensers, crashing, etc, etc.

Can I safely let computer go to sleep and or lockscreen with the DAW open in 2024?

If you want to find out, why don’t you just test it and see what happens. You won’t mess up anything that a reboot can’t cure.

I think mostly the issues are related to loosing contact with the ASIO interface.

I just getting my system all nice and dialed going from Win7 to 11, things are working… and here’s you, in the context of computers, saying, “You won’t mess up anything that a reboot can’t cure.” :rofl: :joy: :rofl:

I do stuff like that all the time when answering questions here.

But you know even if I did give it a try - whether it did or didn’t work on my computer won’t say much about how it behave on your presumably differently configured computer.

Yeah I would to, just for my own operational knowledge and testing - but - specifically right now at this very working moment - no thanks :slight_smile:

It was just a random thought I had… “I wonder…”

Time for another coffeee
