Windows device settings to avoid controller freezing

Post by Spronk » Mon Mar 21, 2016 12:03 pm

This may have been covered elsewhere, but my Logitech Momo Force wheel/USB adaptor/PS4 started freezing intermittently the other day. It had been generally reliable, but I had a long session on Project Cars and something had been interfering with GIMX on the PC. I had already unchecked power management for the adaptor, but not the USB root hubs. I have 10 USB ports on my PC, and I went into Device Manager and disabled power management on each one. As the PS4 controller, wheel and adaptor use these USB ports, I think that the power to the PS4 controller may have been "managed" and interfered with authentication. In any case, the problem seems to have gone away. Just to be on the safe side, I also switch off the PC internet connection to avoid disruption from that source.

I have just completed a 1:45 hour session with the wheel and GIMX adapter without a hitch. May get rid of my CronusMax now. :D
