I seem to be having some issues.

1. Every morning when I start my computer the color temp and brightness, especially the brightness, seem off (the screen is extra dark) and I have to "Reset Temperature" in Iris to fix it.

2. I set a manual location, but I'm not sure if it even acknowledges it. I have my night start set to 19 and night end set to 5, but at 7:30am I have to adjust the night time brightness to adjust the brightness of my screen, not sure what time exactly it switched to the day brightness. And today when I opened up Iris, it was back to the default location for some reason.

3. If I play a game with "use software mouse cursor" enabled, the mouse cursor disappears. If I disable it, it comes back, but it's brightness isn't adjusted and it's so bright it hurts my eyes.

4. Iris seems to have really extended my computer's startup and shutdown times. I have an Intel i7-5960x and 2800Mhz RAM, so it's not that my computer doesn't having enough "power".

I would really like to use Iris and have all it functions work properly, but at this point I feel frustrated and it seems like it would be easier for me to just change the color temp of my monitor at night using my monitor settings.

Any suggestions?

Another question, I turned the brightness of my monitor up to reduce the PWM and turned the brightness back down using NVIDIA Control Panel and Iris, but I've been feeling like my eyes feel worse then they used to. I'm not sure if they're just adjusting to less flicker, or even though I have the brightness turned down so low my whites look like light greys, the LEDs of my monitor are just so bright it's causing me more discomfort? Has anyone had any experience with this and have any recommendations?

I ordered a new "flicker free" monitor but it's not going to be here for a few days and would like to know the best course of action to protect my eyes in the meantime, because lately they been really irritated (they were feeling irritated before I started using Iris, that's the main reason why I bought it in the first place. Just wanted to be clear that I'm not blaming Iris for the discomfort.) .

Thanks!

1. You have f.lux. Delete it

2. Tested and works on my PC. Will look at it more

3. Hm maybe I can make some automation here, but this is expected behavior goes to my TODO

4. Use Iris mini or Iris micro. They are optimized to be light on the system and fast.

Try to match the brightness to be comfortable. Somethings are individual. Make it so you feel good :)

Yes, It's called Mouse pausers and you add your game.exe to automatically show the mouse in games
