Hey there, since I got my NFB 12.1 it looks like it prevents my Windows 7 x64 Prof. from going to sleep or shutting down. If I use windows the whole day without powering on the NFB 12.1 then sleep/shut down works fine. As soon as I once power the NFB 12.1 on (even if I power it off afterwards) windows will not go into sleep or shut down anymore.
 
Anyone has an idea why? Maybe my USB-Power settings on my laptop?
 
Thanks

Sorry - no ideas - but it's not the "Audio-gd NFB-12 driver" - they don't release one.  They just use the standard windows audio stack and drivers.  If there is a problem - it's definitely a Windows one ......

Does your laptop have the connections to use optical? If yes - try that and see if you have same issue. If optical works fine then you've at least narrowed it to the Windows USB drivers.

That's what I'd be checking if it's important to you.  Get the appropriate adaptor plug and a good value optical cable.  If nothing else it gives you another option for connectivity as well.

are you sure it's different than before?  No matter what gear I have hooked to my computer, if I have itunes up and running it will not go to sleep or turn off. It also wont turn off if a device is steaming off my computer. It's a nice feature really since I wouldn't want my computer shutting down when it's supplying music to my stereo that's on a different floor of the house.
