@harleymhs
These two commands using the STEP TWO section in the tutorial should remove the 2 overrides you have that you want removed.

powercfg -requestsoverride driver srvnet
powercfg -requestsoverride driver \FileSystem\srvnet

I tested this on one of my systems - works for me.
David, Thanks for your help! I got the 1st off ( Driver srvnet ) and I tried to get the 2nd one off ( \filesystem\srvnet ) and it says I dont have permission to do that! I am running the cmd on the upper level as ADMIN.. can you guys point me in the right direction? Im 1/2 way there! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP GUYS!

You're welcome, and thanks for posting back with how you solved the second "override remove"!

If you do get the problem again, post a screen print showing the "active" request (powercfg -requests).

I'm DavidW7ncus in Seven Forums and was posting in your thread about this in Seven Forums
Win 7 Not Sleeping when a Imac is running near by! - Windows 7 Help Forums

If you do have this issue again, you could also post in your Seven Forum thread...
Now I'm on the alerts for your SF thread and this EF tutorial, so I should get notified either way.
:)

Got it David, Thanks for loking out here in Win 8 as well as 7 .. Since I turned off ALL my sharing ( printers, netowrk, files and media ) her imac has not contacted my PC anymore! I dont know why the OVERRIDE didnt work for the SRVNET requests. But by turning off all my sharing in advanced seem to do the trick! If SRVNET does requet again, Ill post back here or on 7 and you guys and point me in the right direction to try to OVERRIDE it. I thought I did override SRVNET but BRINK said I didnt have any overrides! But when I ran CMD POWERCFG -requestsoverride it dod show up 2 times! But didnt work! Thanks AGAIN! marc..

I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted Harley. :)

-requests = Lists active power availability requests you have.

POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE <CALLER_TYPE> "<NAME>" <REQUEST> = To override a power availability request list above.

POWERCFG /REQUESTSOVERRIDE = Lists inactive power availability requests that you overrode above.

I have recently upgraded my Win 8.1 PC to Win 10 Home using a Clean Install and am now having problems making it Sleep on the timer. previously on Win 8.1 it would sleep reliably once I had stopped using Homegroup for sharing.. Running powercfg - requests I get this message

Capture4.PNG

How do I use the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" from stopping the PC from sleeping?

Hello Balein, and welcome to Eight Forums. :)

It would be worth a try to see if it may help.

Be sure to create a restore point first in case you have any adverse effects from it. This way you could just simply do a quick system restore to the restore point to undo it.

Glad to be on this forum - the help you give across here and tenforums is unbeatable.

I have already tried using the powercfg -requestsoverride to stop the "Legacy Kernel Caller" using syntax powercfg -requestsoverride device "Legacy Kernel Caller" but I did not do anything. Is there an easy way to find out what the legacy device is that is causing the problem?

Looking in Device Manager I have one Legacy Device showing here, but I does not have any properties that can be amended.

Try using this command:

POWERCFG -REQUESTSOVERRIDE DRIVER "Legacy Kernel Caller" System

Balein,

As part of troubleshooting, disconnect all devices you are able to see if it will sleep afterwards.

In addition to what Brink suggests.
I've see where it displays requests, but the requestsoverride still work.
Temporarily set it to sleep after 1 minute, and see if does go to sleep.

Problem is now resolved!! I use Media Portal as the Media Centre on my PC and record OTA TV using a DVB Tuner. I had configured the Media Portal TV Server to refresh the DVB EPG while idle and this was causing the Legacy Kernel Caller message. Disabling the EPG refresh while idle has fixed the problem and it now sleeps as expected. I found this solution via the Media Portal forum from a google search on "Legacy Kernel Caller"

Apologies for the thread necro, but this has become very relevent to me.

I have an issue where several SP4 users are complaining that their devices go into sleep mode while on long Skype for Business calls and drop the call.

What I'd like to achieve is the opposite of the above and add drivers or processes to REQUESTS, that way I could add the Skype Call process, or the microphone or headset driver so that sleep mode can be prevented while on a call.

I'm not finding a lot of information no achieving this, but if this is possible can you please advise the commands to do so?

Alternatively I can just set the devices to never sleep while plugged in and advise users to keep their devices plugged in, but that seems a less elegant solution.

If the partial result of my powercfg -requests command is
Code:
SYSTEM:[DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio(SST) (INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000\4&22e7f418&0&0001)
An audio stream is currently in use.
what should I use for my powercfg -requestsoverride command to disable the audio driver's ability to prevent sleep?

powercfg /requestsoverride DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio" AWAYMODE DISPLAY SYSTEM?
or
powercfg /requestsoverride DRIVER "INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000
\4&22e7f418&0&0001" AWAYMODE DISPLAY SYSTEM
?
or
??

Should this driver disappear from the powercfg requests list immediately after executing this command? Or after a reboot?

It shows that you have an audio stream currently in use for this, so it may not accept the command below.

Since there's not a file name to make it easier, you could see if either command below may work for you.

Code:
powercfg /requestsoverride DRIVER Realtek High Definition Audio(SST) (INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000\4&22e7f418&0&0001)
OR

Code:
powercfg /requestsoverride DRIVER "Realtek High Definition Audio(SST) (INTELAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0299&SUBSYS_17AA3801&REV_1000\4&22e7f418&0&0001)"
