    Lock Screen During Games


    My windows 10 will go to a lock screen during games. Specifically, iRacing when using the wheel as my input. I have even disabled the lock screen, but it does not seem to have helped.

    Slopland, this worked for me:

    Go to Device Manager and select Display Adapters. Your video card will appear underneath it. Click on that. Now, it will probably tell you that the device is working perfectly and that you have the latest drivers. But click on the tab labelled "Events." Select the date that you installed Win 10. Does it say that your driver is installed completely or incompletely?

    If completely, your problem lies elsewhere. If incompletely, you need to re-install the driver, which USUALLY will not mess you up.

    Set a Restore Point and click the button for uninstalling your driver. Do not delete the driver! 10 will immediately switch to a generic driver, so your monitor won't go blank. Shut down, wait a minute, and restart. 10 might ask if you want to update to the latest driver or it might automatically re-install it. Check Events to see what happened. If it installed correctly, reboot and you'll be fine.

    Thank you for the reply. I checked and it is completely installed. I fresh installed everything with the video driver being the first thing after the OS.

    I looked at my Logitech wheel in device manager and power management. The checkbox "allow hardware to wake the computer" is unchecked and greyed out. The "allow pc to turn off this device" is checked. Maybe if this is not allowed to wake, and while in a race for upwards of 45 minutes, I do not provide any mouse or keyboard input (only wheel), the PC doesn't see the wheel as something "operating"? On the other hand, should it not detect that the video card is running something?

    2nd though is my wheel is USB plugged into a PCI USB/firewire card. Could this be the issue?

    Thanks again for your time.
