Stuck in night mode

  • Hi.
    I'm using f.lux 4.76 on Windows 7.
    I have a schedule to have my screen in night mode while the sun is down, and then back to daytime when the sun is up. A screenshot of my f.lux screen can be found here:

    Often when I come back to the computer the next morning, it will be stuck in night mode (with my screen tinted orange). I have to exit f.lux and then relaunch it for my screen to be reset back to daytime mode.
    I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but I often connect to the computer through remote desktop from another computer.

    Anyone know why it might be stuck in night mode and what I can do to fix it?

  • Yes that's no good - is it standard remote desktop or a third-party app? Can you post "Options > Driver info"?

  • I'm using standard Windows Remote Desktop.
    Here's the requested info:

  • Was it something I said? LOL.

  • Just to add more info, the display is stuck in night mode even when I disable f.lux, as shown in the screnshot below.

  • The screenshot doesn't show what you're seeing. You have to use a camera for showing things like this.

    Is Microsoft Night Light enabled? If so, you will have to disable it.

  • Generally we advise updating drivers to something more current.
