Hi all,


Thanks to Joe and to Laurie for the useful info.

On my current Win7pro shack machine, I have set the USB ports so that they do not sleep, but I am stuck trying to find this option in Win10.

I’ll have to dig a bit more.

Joe, you mentioned that you disabled fast-boot…. Where is that in the menu structure?


For both, my shack PC runs 24/7, so it is likely that I will see if I can set Win10 updates to download, but wait for me to install them. That way, I can make sure it doesn’t do anything nasty.


I’m planning on doing this over the weekend, so it’s fingers crossed for an easy transition.

Same here.

Disabling USB power saving should be standard operating practice when operating any of the sound-card modes, in my opinion. For me it is a mandatory setup on all PCs. Just like having a reliable and accurate NTP source when operating the the JT modes, it is not an option, again IMO.
