    How do I create a power request? (not override)


    Here's the deal.

    For some reason, when I play Fallout 4 (only Fallout 4) if I leave pc idle long enough for my monitor to go to sleep, when it does the PC becomes totally unresponsive requiring a hard reset. I can still hear the game sounds.

    The monitor used to sleep and wake normally if I left the game running. The system does not go to sleep while the game is running though.

    I know how to create a "requestoverride" to prevent things from keeping the PC from sleeping (which I have none of) but how do I create a "request" to prevent the display from sleeping when the fallout4.exe process is running?

    The possible cause of this issue may be the fact that I did not "install" the game. I had previously created a single archive of the entire game, files and folder structure, and I restored that back to it's original logical location.

    The reason for doing this is the massive amount of modding I've done and continue to do to the game. When I have it all running with no problems, I make a backup. I may remove it for 6 months then come back and restore it and do another round of heavy modding and it's good to have a backup in case things go wrong, which they often do when running over 160 mods, using custom models and physics, and teaching yourself how to mod the game even deeper.

    Windows 10 x64 Pro V1803 Build 17134.345

    a request for device descriptor request failed


    Maybe it's time to step back from the current efforts, and start over. I suggest you read over this excellent tutorial and try all of its steps: [Solved] Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) for Windows 10 - Driver Easy. The one that may provide you with some easy relief is the one where you uninstall the device whose descriptor is failing, reboot, and see what happens when device enumeration recurs during boot-up. If you're lucky, it will fix itself.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    True core and memory clock on my GFX...what should I trust?

    i have the list of nvidia core and shader steppings if you like, it shows the requested clockspeed versus the effective clockspeed.
