Mark or anyone,

The past few flights I have had issues with the throttles not reducing at the TOD, even disconnecting the Autothrottles does not work, they remain upwards of about 88%. Makes it very, very hard to land with the throttle stuck at 60-80 %. Any ideas?

That's a pretty general statement.... And more info would be required.

If you disconnect the A/T and you don't have manual throttles... do they work on the ground ?
If they do maybe it's a USB 'timeout'. Check in the Windows Device manager, under USB devices, and check that the USB Host controllers has the 'sleep' mode disabled under the power management tab.

Thanks for the fast reply Mark. Okay, disabled the Power saving mode for all the USB hubs and we will see what happens. Throttles worked fine for Takeoff and cruise, it was just during the descent and taxi in that there was no throttle control.

I'll report back after a few flights. Thanks

I find if I have altered any settings in the server program whilst on a flight, I experience this issue. Therefore if I make any changes I always restart the server and all client programs.

not sure if this helps at all

I've had this too a few times especially when I've selected des now on the cdu. I get an idle caption on the engine display but the throttles stay between the above mentioned %. When the flt plan catches up with my des now selection, the throttles retard correctly.

Thanks for the hints guys. Looks like Mark had the answer for my situation but good to know other possible solutions also.
