      When waking a computer from screen being off in power save mode, it will stay off if a user is logged in.

      Does it fail every single time, or only sometimes?
      If you can offer a % rate please do.

      Yes, can set the screen to go off after 1 minute of inactivity and it will not come back on when it does go blank.

      1. Install driver
      2. Enable power options to turn off display after inactivity and set to 1 minute
      3. Do not touch PC for one minute until display turns off
      4. Move mouse or press key to resume pc, but display does not come back.
      5. Using some guesswork, was able to select Logoff and screen reappears if you can get it to the logon screen.
      6. Test same steps at logon screen and display will resume without issue.
      7. Revert back to driver to resolve issue.
