Mine also when I close Oculus it just minimizes to the system tray... I have to remember to close with the system tray icon so that it switches back to balanced power mode, otherwise the CPU will be stuck at 5GHz wasting all those precious electrons....


Ha, I just leave my conservatively overclocked i9 9900k (water cooled) at 5Ghz (all cores) with a high performance power plan, dam the expense (probably a few $'s per year)! 

The main energy usage comes when playing 3D/VR games/sims which loads up the cpu (and gpu) utalisations and you can see the temps go up (= higher energy demand).  My temps never go above 75degC and drop to 30degC very quickly once the games/sims exit and I go back to low usage apps like MS Office and web surfing.

Yeah that has been pretty much my experience as well.

Also I noticed also that since the update, my monitors never turns off, wasting all those precious photons this time! 🙂

Here's what "powercfg -requests" says:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>powercfg -requests
DISPLAY:
[PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume8\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-runtime\OVRServer_x64.exe
VR Active

Even though Oculus Home is not running....


edit: Maybe that's the reason why Oculus Home just minimizes to the system tray? Since OVRServer thinks that VR is always active?

Static mic bug still happens in 1.42 branch. Random times when talking in social VR my voice (and my friend's with his S) turns into a second of staticy, robotic crackly voice before returning to normal.
Sometimes the voice is permanent instead of just a second - and requires a replugging of the USB to be fixed.
PC hardware is irrelevant, I got it on my old and new PC and my friend got it on his old and new PC, I've read of others also getting this issue both on these forums and on Reddit. This is a software or firmware issue that needs fixing. Might be related to USB bandwidth or be related to the old "static flash" visual bug.

Well for some strange reason, the behavior of my Oculus Home just minimizing to tray when I would close it, has stopped and now it closes properly for me as of yesterday I think.

Yes same thing here! It now properly closes... Maybe it's the windows 10 update I installed yesterday? Or the fact that the update required a reboot? who knows! But anyways, thanks for saving all those precious electrons and photons!
