    Powercfg requestsoverride not working

    I tried many different variations and nothing seems to work. I also have a problem with my usb headset keeping the computer awake as well but override command on it doesn't work either. Am i doing something wrong with this command?

    powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE Process "IDMan.exe" SYSTEM
    powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE Process "IDMan.exe"
    powercfg -REQUESTSOVERRIDE Process IDMan.exe
