Station cannot detect turned-off "Do not disturb" mode on Windows / "Focus assist" is always on

(Przemek Kowalczyk) #1

The issue I’m facing is: Station cannot detect that I turned off “Do not disturb”/“Focus assistant” on Windows 10.

Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: Launch Station?

  • Issue: I was trying to turn on notifications in Station, but it’s not possible because it wrongly detects that I have turned on “Do not disturb” mode

    After turning Windows on and off again it detected one notification but bug occured again:

  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):
    (“Skupienie” means “Focus” in polish)

  • OS version: Windows 10 Pro, version 1803, compilation 17134.165

  • Station version: Stationversion 1.19.0

Notifications are always in do not disturb
Do not disturb cannot be desactivated on station... (Windows 10)
"Do Not Disturb" bell is not working

The issue I’m facing is:
Notifications drawer always states that windows is in “Do not disturb mode” even though Focus assist is off system wide. Also Notifications are enabled and quiet hours are disabled.

Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger:
  • Issue:
    Notifications drawer always in do not disturb mode
  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):
  • OS version:
    Windows 10 64
  • Station version: 1.19

I’m also having this issue.

Hi there,

I cannot mange to activate or deactivate “do not disturb” mode on Station.
I read that the “do not disturb” mode of station is linked with the “do not disturb” from windows 10.

I checked all windows 10 settings and my “do not disturb mode” on windows 10 is clearly desactivated…
Why is the “do not disturb” mode then still active on station?

Thanks for your help!


I’m having this problem too. Turned off “do not disturb mode” but still not getting notifications on Station.

:writing_hand: Brief description of the issue

My problem is that …

Audio notifications are not working. I tried to toggle notifications on and off , tried to change settings, reinstalled, add a exclusion in my antivirus and changed my focus assist settings.

I only get normal notifications without sound and its so frustrating because im trying for so long. It once worked when I reinstalled it but after my restart it did not anymore and tried and tried again it did not work.

It tells me that my focus assist is still on BUT ITS NOT!!!

Any News on this topic? I have the same problem and don’t have any idea how it can be solved.

(João Mário) #13

Hello again, I found a solution, at least for me it worked:

  1. The problem
    Station most certainly uses ‘windows-quiet-hours’ module to check if the user is using or not quiet hours. Module Here
    This module is not checking the correct registry key in windows. Thus never knowing if it’s on or off.

  2. Partial Solution
    Go to Registry Editor and put the value that it erroneously checks to 1:

Hope it works for you.

Notifications are not working / I never get any pop-up / There's nothing in the notification center

Same issue here. & @Joao_Mario the registry solution did not work for me

(João Mário) #15

Hi @alexivanoff12, maybe you have other problems, I loaded the Module that I talked in (1), and debugged from there, if you wanna give it a try I can help you.

I don’t think this will be solved in the future, unless they stop using this feature of knowing if the OS is in DND or not. The new “Focus Assist” is a bit diferent in terms of architeture.

This workaround works :wink:

Same problem here on version 1.31.3

The Regedit workaround worked for me, but it’s not an ideal fix.

First of all, love this app!!!

I can’t seem to change the ‘Do Not Disturb’ Mode. It just keeps mentioning that ‘Windows is on Do Not Disturb Mode’ but doesn’t bring me to where I can fix it

Here’s the detailed report

  • Issue: The bell is not clickable?

  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):

  • Station version: Windows 10 user using ASUS Station 1.8.2

(Dino Rav) #20

Even with the “Quiet Hours” and “Focus Assistant” features off, the bell is still assuming that Windows has Do not disturb mode on. Is there anything I could do about it ?

(Chris Loyen) #21

Do you know the correct registry key for Focus mode?
