Catalyst 14.9 - flaky power saver mode - won't fold on Idle

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though AMD has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Catalyst 14.9 - flaky power saver mode - won't fold on Idle

Postby 7im » Thu Oct 23, 2014 11:38 pm

Don't have a lot of info yet, but have seen several standby and power saver problem posts in other forums.

Anyway, after installing this 14.9 driver, my monitors will not go in to power saver mode, so folding on the GPU never starts. I use the fold while idle option to avoid the lag problem with my mid range R7 240.

Which is better than others have reported. A lot of systems will power down in saver mode, but won't come out of it. System has to be rebooted.

IMO, roll back to 14.7 if you have problems. Caveat Folder.
