Joystick Disables

Recommended Posts

Sometimes before takeoff, and sometimes during cruise, my Sidewinder Force Feedback II joystick will become disabled, forcing me to use the keypad arrows for directional control.  I made no sudden or abrupt movements.  Is there a parameter I can change?  What could cause this?

Have the same thing Windows 8.1, i did do the power management thing didn't work how ever, the only thing that works for me at this point is a program called don't lose your stick, you can program all the buttons and axis of your joystick and keep it running while your flying, hasnt failed for me since

Had the same problem with Windows 8, only solution was to setup controls with FSUIPC 

 

I never setup my controls in FSUIPC before, but now im glad i have!
