Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Epic Launcher won't let my monitor sleep

Hi..! I use the search function here but I cant find another post with this problem, but yeah, is just that, When I have Epic Games Launcher open (downloading stuff or not) my monitor won't turn off.. I have set up in windows to turn off the monitor after 1 minute, but with epic launcher open, that never happens.. I close the launcher and everything works nice again..

Hi RS,

Can you run the powercfg -requrests command when running cmd.exe as administrator? Here are instructions. I just want to double confirm that it really is the launcher and maybe not the display drivers that are keeping it awake (the launcher is DX11).

Can you also attach your dxdiag info?

Welcome back to 2018 race fans, this is once again a problem. If I put the screen to sleep, Epic will wake it up. When EPIC is running the screen refuses to sleep on it's own. If you exit out of the EPIC launcher, the problem goes away. Common EPIC, stop being greedy.
