Hi, does anyone have a fix so that Finale v26 will allow Windows 10 to sleep? I can manually put the computer into sleep mode, but sometimes I forget. I hate having to exit Finale to be sure that my computer doesn't run continuously. Thanks.

Don't get your hopes up for a fix. Not only does Finale misbehave (on my system it also takes over the audio so no other application can make sound while Finale is loaded), but Windows sometimes inexplicably refuses to sleep as well. I make it a point to shut Finale down when I'm not using it, since people have reported bad things happening leaving it running with files open for days. It is easy to forget, though.
