    My Fanatec base will randomly shut off in the middle of racing. Seems to mainly be with AC and iRacing. I've already tried turning off the power management settings in device manager, I've turned off USB selective suspend setting in power options, I've updated the firmware, tried plugging into a USB 2.0 instead of 3.0, and tried all of my other ports on my PC and it still happens. It never seems to be at the same time. Some days it works fine and never does it. It can't be a lack of power, I have a 750w power supply. Any ideas?

    Here's my system specs:

    Intel i7 6700k 4.0ghz

    Windows 10 64bit

    Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1080

    GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming GT

    16GB of RAM
