    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.

I set up family safety for my 12 year old daughter, and ticked all the apps she can use freely.
