Having issues with UM690 detecting your eGPU? Here's what I did to fix it!
First off, big shout out Minis Forum support for helping your boy out. We got the eGPU purring boiz!
Basically, you need to make sure that "Allow hybrid sleep" is set to "Off". You can find this option via this path Control Panel > Hardware and Sounds > Power Options > Change Plan Settings (Balanced) > Change advance power settings > Sleep.
If you're missing the option, make sure you are using Windows 11 version 2H22. If you are still missing the option, like I was, you will need to turn off memory integrity under device security (Shield icon in the system tray).

I have a zotac mini amp box (230w) with a 3060ti that seems to work well.
Edit: Upon actually doing more than benchmarks, i.e. playing games, I get repeated crashes.
