No standby with RT.X10

Discussion in 'Matrox' started by Daniel Kelly \(AKA Jack\), Jun 9, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    My PC refuses to go into standby. It complains that "The device driver for
    the 'Matrox MiniVFX' device is preventing the machine from entering standby.
    Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you
    may need to update this driver."

    Does anyone have any ideas how I might be able to enable standby on my PC
    without having to uninstall the RT.X10 drivers? Here are my specs:

    Windows XP Pro SP1
    Adobe Premiere Pro
    Matrox RT.X10 video editing card
    Matrox P750 video card with 2 monitors attached
    Matrox Xtools 5078
    Pentium 4 2.8GHz with HT
    2GB DDR SDRAM

    I've tried disabling the MiniVFX driver but with no luck.

    Thanks,
    Jack

  2. Hi again,

    Damn Matrox. Apparently they "don't support power saving". Well done
    Matrox. You sloppy engineering has increased the world's total power
    consumption.

    It seems it might be possible to setup a new hardware profile that excludes
    the Matrox driver. Then chose on startup.

    I'll give it a go and get back to you.

  3. I've now got two hardware profiles. Both profiles are identical except one
    has all the Matrox Video drivers disabled. I can now go into standby in
    this hardware profile.

    Does anyone have a more elegant solution?

    Many thanks,
    Jack
