    All sorted thanks.

    (Went to take a picture to post with my phone and realised that wasn't happening.)

    Great work John.

    Control station>Windows tuning>Apply brightness fix on start is working great on my P957HR. Is it possible to extend the functionality of this so that it applies the fix on waking from sleep and resuming from hibernation also? I have to check and uncheck this option every time for the brightness to... er... get fixed.

    That bug is something MS already recognized, it should be fixed in an update (i was even under the impression it was already done).
    As a temporary fix you can do this:
    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/78839-clear-live-tile-cache-start-windows-10-a.html

    I was going to do this and noticed the code is already there.
    There is already a post resume function to call all the fixes after resume.
    Can you tell me if you have the "Disable Fast Startup" option selected?
    Is Control Station really running when you put the PC to sleep?
    Does your username require password to login? -> just so i can test myself

    It´s actually not a bug with Control Station, what Control Station does is query XTU and if it replies "Invalid ID" then there´s no core 5/6/7/etc it does not show the UI boxes for them...
    XTU sometimes bugs out, and replies Invalid ID when it should reply the actual Core 5 multiplier.
    So make sure your XTU is updated.
    Maybe i´ll try to add some code to query it twice.

    Also make sure you are running Control Station 1.2.7 and it´s installed in C:\Program Files\ControlStation

    I disabled fast start which turned off the hibernate option, so that problem is 'fixed'. It is now properly applying the brightness fix after waking from sleep.

    Remaining problem: I have set (in power options) to turn off my display if the laptop is idle for - say - 10 minutes. For testing you can set it to 1 minute. When the display goes off, touch the touchpad or press any key to wake the display. In my case when this happens the screen is at full brightness. Unchecking and rechecking the 'apply brightness fix on start up' is needed to be done every time.

    Control station is running - active or minimised to system tray - makes no difference.
    Username requires password to log in on start, but not after waking up the display.

    Off topic: since the nVIDIA display driver is the largest in size, if you suggest to users to download it from nVIDIA website, that should save you a ton of bandwidth. They can see which version to download from the updater app.

    Ohhh so we need to apply the fix AFTER the screen turns off / on....
    I´ll check if that triggers any even i can catch!
