inhibit system sleep not working
« on: April 30, 2016, 11:52:39 am »
i have the windows 10 on my brand spanking new surface pro 4 and i can't get the inhibit system sleep to work, i used to have a surface 3 and an older version(can't remember which) of qbittorrent and it worked perfectly, but i can't get it to work.
is this an issue for anyone else on either:
a) windows 10
b) surface pro 4

thanks :-)

Pretty sure QBT has to be running as administrator under windows10 for that functionality to work.

I have the same problem on a Surface Pro 3 (Windows 10 64bit) even if I run qbittorrent as administrator. Have you found a solution yet?

It's the same for me.

Enabling the Power Management setting, Inhibit system sleep when torrents are active, is not preventing my Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Build 14393 desktop from going to sleep while qBittorent is in the midst of downloading files.
