I did some digging and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is causing issues for users of laptop and desktops where USB and HDMI are affected by Sleep Wake.
Turning fast startup to off
has fixed an issue for me where the HDMI light would go Orange, or sensor tracking would be unusable and glitchy.
After PC wakes up my Rift would have an orange light and required a reboot to get it to work again, disabling it solved the issue:Edit: This fix also seems to fix the HMD being unusable after a few hours of not being used.Edit2: I have pinned this thread for a bit as I have had more reports of this working for others.Edit3: If you are experiencing instant HMD blackout after taking it off for the first time and the below fix does not work, people have reported that temporarily disabling the Guardian System, for now, fixes the issue.
After disabling it Do not reboot
, perform a shutdown
, wait a few secs and start up again.
