I am happily using EventGhost for a number of years, but recently it has started giving me grief that I have not been able to resolve by myself.
My HTPC is running on Windows 10 64-bit with an eHome infrared receiver. The latest version of EventGhost is installed and it is started from Windows Task Scheduler using a standard user account, but with highest permissions. The alternative MCE service has been installed and is running fine, at least it appears to be. There are no entries in the event log which hint at potential problems, at least I could not find any.
This setup is normally running fine and I mostly use it for the remote control of DVBViewer. The system is set to go to sleep after a certain period of inactivity and no TV shows are being recorded in the background. Most of the time, the system works fine after resuming from sleep. Sometimes, however, EventGhost does not receive any events anymore from the IR remote, the icon stays green all the time even if the eHome receiver confirms with a red flash of the LED that a signal has been received. The alternative MCE service is running according to the services info. Restarting of EventGhost or of the alternative MCE service does not help, only after a restart the system operates normally again.
Any hints what I should be looking for? Am I looking in the right places? Any other idea?

The USB hubs so that that the system cannot put them to sleep to save power. I have put the HTPC through a few sleep/resume cycles and, so far, EventGhost worked fine. It is not clear to me how conclusive this result is because up to now the problems occurred when the system had been at sleep for a several hours and I don't know if that makes a difference.
