Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

VR headset runs into sleeping mode and closes app

I am running a game and using a WMR headset. If i pause and continue after 15 minutes, WMR closes the app and i lose all my data. We run this game for customers who can play it, but sometimes change headset for another user. This is why sometimes the headset is not moving for a couple of minutes.

How can this be resolved. Is there an option for just turning the screen black and when moving it starts displaying again, same like Oculus and teh HTC vive ?

    Having the same problem. I get the feeling there is no solution and no one cares.

    Same issue here. Worse : The game I'm using handles VR as an extra gizmo (not very well) and crashes when the VR goes to sleep. I have to constantly keep the headset awake or have to restart the game!
