    Idle Time Out


    My plugged in system goes into 'connected standby' for the reason as shown in the Event Viewer

    The system is entering connected standby

    Reason: Idle Timeout.

    How do I prevent my system from entering connected standby? Please note I have the following settings in Power & Sleep settings Sleep

    On battery power, PC goes to sleep after

    4min

    When plugged in, PC goes to sleep after

    Never

    Is it possible to increase or disable the Idle Timeout for going into connected standby?

    :)

    Bluetooth still on while idle

    Thanks for following the steps. Now, the settings won't take effect if you are only using normal PC idle mode. Normal functionality of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi settings are to stay connected even if PC is idle. With the settings that you have created, we would
    suggest that you set your PC to automatically go to Sleep or
    Hibernate
    once idle. In this way, the settings "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" should take effect.

    To set your PC to automatically go to Sleep or Hibernate when idle, please follow these steps:

    • Open Control Panel, set view by: Small
      icons.
    • Look for Power Options.
    • Click on Change when the computer sleeps on the left pane.
    • Set a timer.

    Please try it out. Hope it helps. If you have any other concerns, don't hesitate to come back to us.

    Memory use shoots up to 99% after idle time

    I'm facing this problem in the last few days. Memory use according to Task Manager goes up to 99%, CPU reaches 80% and the PC becomes almost totally unresponsive.

    Based on similar threads I installed RAMMap and here's what is shown.

    I installed Poolmon and ran it and this is what I get.

    Please note that the first entry does not show a tag. Is this normal?

    According to the rest of the listing I should investigate Volsnap.sys and atc.sys. Could you advise what are the next steps?

    Idle Time Out

    Windows Updated(16299.309).KB4088776 Restart is required to complete.


    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Idle Time Out :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.
