Hey there everyone,

I have just come across an interesting issue, While flying several hours it seems that saitek yoke, throttle and rudder become inactive, My pc is Alienware m17x, it does not enter the sleeping mode or anything similar. I was wondering if there is any possible solution to that, only the hatch(view pan) work, all other buttons and axis sim deactivated.

Thanks in advance

Sounds like Windows is saving power and turning off the USB power. Go into the Device Manager, find all the USB hubs listed, right click, properties, and turn off Windows power management on every one that has one.

FS does not re-scan devices after it has initialised, so if joysticks are not connected at load time, or disconnected and reconnected later, they cannot be used again (with FSX assignment) until you restart FS.

With FSUIPC assignment, late connected or re-connected devices will work again if you visit the Axes tab in FSUIPC options -- it rescans each time you do this. You don't need to make changes, just call up the tab and ok or cancel out.

Regards

Pete
