    Soundblaster Z preventing sleep

    So, I installed a new SoundBlaster Z card and now my computer will not auto-sleep. I can put it to sleep manually, but when my overnight backups kick in, it will not go back to sleep.
    See attached screenshot. This occurs straight from a Windows restart.
    Any ideas on this?

    I worked out that it's the Dolby Digital Live encoding that is causing this. If I switch it off, then the message disappears from the powercfg output.
    Is there a way round this, as I need the DDL?
