Tone 2 Pro prevents screen from sleep (Win7)

Hi! I’ve recently acquired tone 2 pro and have been planning on using it with my workstation running Windows 7.

Everything seems to be running smoothly so far except for my screen refusing to turn off after a set period of inactivity when tone 2 is connected. The Khadas audio dashboard doesn’t seem to be the culprit since the pc does turn off the screen after the set time normally with it running and the tone board disconnected.

I have my pc on 24/7 with remote access capabilities so the automatic sleep mode for displays is quite crucial. What could be the solution besides manually disconnecting the soundcard?

Thanks!
