Why Is Power Management Important?
We strongly recommend to deactivate all power saving options in Microsoft Windows in order to ensure an interruption-free operation of MADRIX.
Microsoft Windows operating systems offer a wide variety of power management options. In most cases, PCs, laptops, notebooks, and netbooks benefit from a longer battery life if a good power management is in use. But certain problems might occur because of computer power savings nevertheless:
|▪||After a while your MADRIX KEY cannot be identified by the software anymore.|
|▪||Your hardware interfaces are suddenly deactivated.|
Make sure to set up power-saving settings especially if you are using:
|▪||A MADRIX KEY [USB dongle]|
|▪||MIDI controllers [via USB]|
|▪||USB hardware interfaces [such as MADRIX NEO]|
|▪||A notebook/laptop to run MADRIX|
|▪||Make sure to change the USB power settings.|
|▪||Especially for notebooks, we recommend to activate the High performance power plan. |
