Still working on the backlog of tickets. Please bear with me. If you have a licence-ticket that needs urgent attention update it to push it up.

Device stays dark (no display)

If the Multi Panel or Radio Panel stays dark and you have to restart SPAD.neXt to get it to display anything, you have a "Usb sleep" issue.
Open the Windows device manager and head to the USB Devices. For each device that has the word "hub" in it, edit the properties and disable "Computer can turn off this device" option in the energy settings.
Also make sure in your windows energy profile the "Selective USB Suspend" Option is disabled.

Be aware that windows resets this settings with every update. Specially with the insider preview program.
