Pi service prevents sleep and breaks gsync


#1

Anybody else here have this issue?
Whenever the pimax service is running my gsync will just not work. The service is always running even if II haven’t launched pitool, so I need to manually go into task manager and stop it every time!
And my pc can’t be put to sleep because pi_server.exe keeps waking up my pc.

Maybe an older pimax version works?

Hi @emiljensen2,

i didn’t played much ‘Normal’ Games recently but mostly VR Games where G-Sync isn’t important. But, after testing with the NVidia Pendulum Demo, i can confirm that while the Pi Services are running - G-Sync is deactivated regardless what is defined in the NVidia Control Center.

I didn’t tested the Sleep Problem, though.

An Update. If i remove the power from the Pimax 5k+, even with running pi services g-sync works again. It might have nothing to do with the services at all, but the additional ‘displays’ the VR-Headset represents which arn’t g-sync compatible and therefore the nvidia driver stops g-sync itself.

A non compatible display shouldn’t stop gsync. I have 2 other monitors which doesn’t make gsync non functional.
