Stix Flare II Animate prevents PC from sleeping when synced

Level 7

Hello All,

If this keyboard RGB is synced via Armory Crate or Signal RGB my pc will never turn off the display or go to sleep. I'd like to avoid refunding this keyboard if possible. I've been fighting with this issue for days and am ready to give up. 

If I plug it in without syncing any effects the PC sleeps fine.

I have done a complete uninstall/reinstall of Armory Crate and as I said I even tried switching to Signal RGB. I've tried different USB ports, updating to latest firmware. It took me hours to isolate the issue to this keyboard and I'm beyond frustrated. Any help is appreciated.
