USB interface seems to "sleep" when not in use


New member
Hi All,

First time here so hello to the community!

I just got myself a Presonus AudioBox and so far its really great bar one thing....

If I am watching a youtube vid or playing an audio file for example and allow the audio to stop it will not work again without either changing the output device in Windows(works 6/10 times) or unplugging/plugging in the usb of the interface(always works). Never stops while in use and is otherwise perfect but as I said in the title, it's like the device is sleeping when not in use and won't wake properly.

Windows at all times sees the device and has it set as audio output without any issues.

Any tips or a fix would be much appreciated.
