I see many people with issues getting their NUC to sleep (constant reboot loop). I am having a different issue.
I would like my NUC to stay on full-time...or at least wake from sleep when requested.
The NUC will not wake from:
My unit sleeps after 10 minutes:
Pressing the power button does nothing
I end up having to hold the power button in to shut the NUC off completely - then power it back on.
I really need this to stay on 24-7 as my goal is to place NUCs in several locations that only have one single NUC, so no other devices on the network to send a WoL magic packet.
Thank you for any suggestions.
OK a couple of more items.
Why would the monitor being off impact my ability to access the NUC?
Installing uninstalling the intel driver, and re-installing did seem to make a difference.
The NUC does now start windows with or without a monitor.
However - When using Teamviewer to connect to it, all I see is a black screen.
I plug a monitor in and the monitor works and teamviewer shows the screen.
I disconnect the monitor and teamviewer does continue to work (even with a disconnect and reconnect - perhaps Teamviewer needs the monitor to be plugged in at least one time before disconnecting). I will test more later to see how this works over an extended time period.
Very frustrating. Almost sent this unit back until I ran across the "headless" issues postings.
AngeliaT1. Thank you for posting your results.
Please try the following driver that was developed for NUC systems:
It was released as beta but please provide any feedback once you test driver version 10.18.10.3540
Thank you for the suggestion Allan. Unfortunately that did not work. I had already tried that one, but tried it again.
The driver on this page is the one that will allow me to boot WITH a monitor attached, then power the monitor off, I am still able to connect via teamviewer....until the unit reboots (monitor is off at this point).

Robert_U's driver is really close to a working solution. I really hope you guys can pull it together and get this worked out soon. It uses a lot of extra electricity running a monitor 24/7 - not to mention the bright glowing light I do not want to see 24/7.
