  1. Change 'Device not recognised' timeout?


    I have several external USB3 drives, mains AC powered, which I use regularly; there are not enough USB ports on my PC to plug them all in directly, (and the access to the USB ports is impossible anyway without my shifting furniture every time), so I connect them via a hub, which is also mains AC powered.

    When I want to use one of the drives, turning on its mains supply, then pressing its switch on the hub (which is individually switched for each port), I am invariably informed, after several seconds, that Windows (10 Pro) has not recognised the device. After a little longer however, it usually shows up OK in the 'This PC' window...

    Been trying to find an entry in the registry that will extend the time before the 'Device not recognised' message comes up, but so far (Googling, searching the registry) but no luck.. anyone able to help with that please?

    Thanks

    :)

    Unable to change windows 10 timeout

    I have tried all options suggested like;

    • changing lock setting in Persoanlize-lock screen-screen save settings- change wait value (doesnt hold value, whatever I set comes back to 2).
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Sleep-Sytem unattended sleep timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • Changed registry to enable Power Options-Display-Console lock display off timeout , changed it to 60 min
    • System file checker tool didnt find any correct/missing files "Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files"
    None of the options work, after 2 minutes my computer locks. Is there any way out of this nightmare or should I switch to older windows?
