Hey guys!

I am having a problem with sound staying on when my screen sleeps on my Samsung 55" when its conencted via HDMI from my EVGA 1080ti to my new Sound Carrier.

Sleep options are disabled on the Samsung,I have tried changing the power options settings but the tv still sleeps no matter what setting I use via the TV / Computer. Is there has to be a way to fix this? Any ideas?

The reason I am not using optical / the motherboard is the Creative Sonic carrier has 15.2 Dolby Atmos sound and I am trying to be able to use that. If I use optical or my headphones I wont lose sound when the screen shuts off but this is a problem if I want to listen to music while I am away.

Thanks for the help!

is the HDMI connected like: pc > sound bar > TV? I would assume that its the drop of HDCP when the TV turns off that causes the audio loss.

I would agree...that's the first place I would check. I think the HDCP would drop.
