Default After a while in Windows 10 the profile changes to rainbow

Hi guys,

In my Windows 10, after I'm playing a game for a few minutes, the keys start waving the rainbow (maybe the default). I have an installation of Windows 8.1, and that doesn't happen. On the same computer!

Please tell me, is there a way to disable the "auto profile change" to the default rainbow wave after a while in the same program, so it doesn't upset me while gaming?

I'm currently only gaming in Windows 8.1 because I can't get the rainbow out of my face, all the time in Win 10!
I tried Windows Power Management settings, Screen saver settings, CUE settings... Nothing stops this keyboard from "rainbow waving", if I'm on the same program/game for more than a few minutes.

No one had this issue yet!?

Do you have some kind of notification appear in background of something on Win 10? That most likely reset the active process for CUE to explorer and it goes back to your default profile (or whatever profile you linked to it if you have one).

Any other kind of similar thing might trigger it too, for example on my pc (Win 8.1) sometimes an ads popup from Avira that appears on the bottom-right of the screen "resets" the active process and CUE switches out of the profile I am in.

Thank you so much for helping!!

My Windows 10 installation is "vanilla", meaning I just installed it, all drivers and a few games. No notifications of any sort. I experience the "rainbow" effect if I stay working with one program/game, without changing to another one. As soon as I change to another program, my profile is activated.

I also saved my profile to the keyboard ROM and set it as default in CUE. It doesn't make a difference... After a few minutes, I get rainbow waves in a program or game.

My Win 8.1 has much more applications and games installed, as I'm using it for many months. It doesn't happen there, on the same machine...

I thought could be some hidden setting in the Windows Power settings or screen saver, but I tried everything, even remotely possible.. I'm out of options...
Either I keep my RGB keyboard and Win 8.1, or I find another keyboard and move on to 10 :(

The CUE and firmware are the latest.
