    Broken as fuck, “GENERIC FAILURE” whenever I click it, and “GENERIC FAILURE” to exit it. When I do get around to disabling auto-start.. “GENERIC FAILURE”. And it still starts up anyway, and when I login, I am greeted with “GENERIC FAILURE”.

    I used this app on two other laptops with no problems, it’s become part of my “toolset” The laptop in question is an ACER V3-571G-9435, fresh install of WIN_PRE_x64.

    I someone has a solution, let me know, because I really did like using it on my old laptop, and no other program is just as compact, and easily allows the screen to be turned off.
