Armory Crate - Profile Switch problem

Level 7
I've been having a problem with the Armory Crate for the past four days.
After going idle for a certain amount of time (somewhere around 10 - 30 minutes), instead of switching profiles instantly as soon as I press FN + F5 - instead it switches once and then "hangs"(?) or becomes unresponsive until either a few minutes later or until I restart the Armory Crate Service. It's still switchable via the actual application itself.

This also happened about a week ago but then stopped after two days before starting again four days ago. It's a bit annoying since every time I come back from Idle I have to keep restarting the service itself for the shortcut to work. Does anyone know what's causing this or how to fix this?

EDIT: Just an update just shortly after I posted this: I was playing a game of Siege and when I closed it, I tried the shortcut to see if it still works and would you look at that - it doesn't. So apparently it only doesn't happen during Idle, also happens when I'm actively using the laptop.

UPDATE (12/23):
Confirmed now. It just does not happen during Idle. After a certain amount of time FN + F5 will stop working. Changing profiles via the Armory Crate application will change the brightness if I switch from one to another with a diff brightness level but the fan levels won't change.

Just gonna put this here just incase, my laptop is an ASUS FX50DU

Anyone able to help with this? There's an update with the problem, it happens without having to go Idle. Is there a way to downgrade the AC Service or something? It seems to be at the latest version (3.2.5) and I'm not quite sure if it's the one causing problems.
