    Windows 10 crackling audio (Realtek)

    Does anyone else have an issue with crackling audio on Windows 10 with Realtek audio? It seems to be a common issue judging by internet searches but solutions are hard to come by. I finally found a solution that works, changing registry entries for Realtek Power settings but the side effect was that the laptop would no longer sleep after the selected timeout. i changed the "IdlePowerState" and "PerformanceIdleTime" to "ff ff ff ff". Does anyone know have any idea how to fix the sound issues and retain the ability to allow the laptop to sleep?

    Use a USB sound card. Even a ú10 one is as good sound wise as an onboard sound chip.

    This is just an annoyance when monitoring Audacity recordings and making Zoom calls. It actually seems to be behaving itself at the moment.
