    Universal app launches itself after Sleep and using Nvidia GPU


    Hello
    i recently did the error of updating my universal apps through windows Store(until then i had no issues).
    what's happening now is that after waking from sleep i can see the Yourphone app running both in Task manager and in the Nvidia GPU activity icon.
    Background apps are set to Off and i never used the Yourphone app.
    about it using the Nvidia card,i tried to set the app to use the 'power saving gpu' in Settings/Graphic setting which helped for a while,but it's back to using nvidia now.(there's a solution to add yourphone.exe to the Nvidia "program settings" and set it to 'optimal power' which i might try if it persists),but preventing it from running is the main issue.
    i would have already uninstalled the YourPhone app through Power-Shell, but i recently stumbled upon this:
    "The Your Phone app is deeply integrated into Windows..."
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/...your-phone-app

    i saw what might be a solution here which i can't find right now where through Group policy you have to "turn off tile notifications" .
    i don't mind doing this since I've already turned off live tiles on all the apps i was able to through the Start menu,
    but in group policy(in the description)it says:
    "if you enable this policy setting,applications and system features will not be able to update their tiles and tile badges in the start screen",and I'm not sure how would this affect my/classic apps and other "system features" and prefer to just Terminate the Youphone app when needed instead of messing things up.

  2. Problems with NVIDIA GEFORCE GPU and DirectX

    Well I'm logged into a Microsoft account if that's what you're asking. Prior to the issue the only things I did that could be considered change were installing DirectX 11 and changing which GPU the games would use via NVIDIA Control Panel.

    No, it isn't specific to any game. Any game that uses a GPU will not launch.

    Windows 10 CPU usage 100% when Nvidia GPU enabled

    I've had the same problem, and have exactly the same GPU model. I was able to set the drivers back to factory default, but any update I've tried (including the most recent) causes the massive cpu usage. I've contacted tech support for both Nvidia and Asus,
    and followed all the steps they suggested, with no luck.

  4. Universal app launches itself after Sleep and using Nvidia GPU

    Browser launches after sleep

    Hi and thank you for your response, followed the steps above and rebooted sadly still no change. Browser still launches after sleep. I have tried what you suggest plus number of variations of uninstall, reinstall, downloading latest vendor drivers, using
    windows update to to get lastest drivers and letting control panel install drivers all with no change. Is there anything else you can suggest?
