Joystick problem with Vista

Posted: 08-06-2008, 11:37 AM

Hi, :

I have a problem with my joystick on vista 32 and 64

The Joystick works fine but the problem that windows vista did no
sense that I'm using it. So after period of time the monitor goes t
stand by and I have to press a button or move the mouse to start th
monitor again

Maybe someone will say stop monitor from going to standby from contro
panel but I cant because I usually leave the PC for sometime and I can'
let the monitor on

Anybody had this problem or only me

Should I try another Joystick

If yes what you recommend

Thank you

How can the joystick work if Vista doesn't detect the joystick?

What? Oh, your game doesn't keep the monitor awake and it goes into
standby mode. Talk to the game maker. Some games don't keep the monitor
awake during long joystick sessions.

I'm sure you're not the only one, grasshopper.

Sure...

A different one.

You never said what joystick, what game, what kind of computer
(make/model).

Not sure what to suggest. Learn to post complete thoughts?

I bought it for 10 $ from non famous company.

Sorry I mixed up between joystick and Game pad

The One I currently use is Game pad

One similar to Playstation Controller

When I said that vista don't detect it I was meaning that Vista don't
sense that I'm using it. So after sometime monitor goes to standby. This
problem happens in all games not only one game.

I tried it on Windows XP 32 & 64 bit and it works perfectly the screen
did not go to standby only in vista this problem happen.

I think I will buy new gamepad from Logitec or Genius.

Thanks for your help..

Go to power options in control panel and set your pc for maximum power usage
config, go to the screensaver option, and set that to never use a
screensaver. If you leave your PC, switch off the monitor!

You have to tell your compuer not to go to standby by going to the
control panel and changing this in the power settings.

As I said before I can't keep my pc all time running without going t
standby

I'm a movable person so I always leave the pc on and go somewhere else

That's why I configuare it to go to standby after period of time

Thanks for your replay :

you leave the house change it back to standby

This is not good

But I figure the Game Pad Only not senced in PES200

In Assassin creed and Most Wanted monitor keeps working !

Do you think it's a game bug

I guess it could be. I was just wondering why you like the standby s
much

This is my system. I have a Gigabyte Mobo. Intel core 2 quad. Window
Vista Ultimate X64, EVGA 8800 gts super overclocked from the factor
with 640 onboard. I like this video card because it will run direct x 1
games

I have 8 gig of DDR2 high speed ram. I have 1 terabyte's of hard driv
space. Its all in a Antec tower with a 750 watt power supply. I buil
this system about 8 months ago and I have NEVER used standby at all an
my computer is never turned off

It may be that the game that you are having a problem with does no
support the game pad you are using. It could be that I guess. It coul
be that the game is not made for Vista and is not shutting off th
standby part of Vista

Your guess is as good as mine on that one. I hope you find out

Mik

I did not mean I configure my pc to go to standby mode after period o
time

What I meant that Only the Monitor I configured to go to standby mod
after period of time and not all the PC

You know leaving a monitor turn on all time not good specially when i
is LCD because that will affect the quality of colors after period o
time

So I only configured the monitor to go to standby mode after period o
time

I leave my PC 24 hours on and that's not a problem

I hope you understand what I meant

Thanks for replay.. :
