F.lux does not work when screen wakes up
Below is my PC configuration:
Windows 10 v2004 OS Build: 19041.928
Intel i7-9700K 3.6GHz
EVGA GEForce RTX 2080
Three monitors - ViewSonic VP2785-4K + VP2785-4K + VP2768-4K
In the power and sleep settings of Windows 10, i have setup the following:
Screens turn off after: 15 mins
The monitors turn off after 15 mins if not being used, as expected. In the night, when i wake the monitors using mouse or keyboard, f.lux doesn't work and the brightness is on full blast mode. I try to reset the display driver using the Ctrl+Win+Shift+B option, it resets f.lux correctly, sometimes it doesnt and sometimes only some of the monitors. If i exit f.lux and restart, it works fine.
This issue is consistent and repeatable.
If i don't turn off screen and use screensaver instead, there are no issues. I only see issue when i set the screen to turn off after some time. This is not a sleep mode issue as i don't set my PC to go to sleep.
Is there something in the monitor settings i need to change?
Is there a setting in windows i need to change?
What information would you need to debug this issue further?
Thanks in advance!
I have the same problem.
I found that if I toggle the windows notification sidebar open and close it again, or minimize a browser window and maximize again, flux starts working.
I have flux set to disable on fullscreen apps, and I think it's reading the screen turn off as a full screen app for some reason. Going to test by turning off disable for full screen apps and see if the issue still occurs.
