@Dwatters, The Vive is a device that requires SteamVR's basestations in order to work. You can confirm basic functionality by connecting the HMD and installing and launching SteamVR. If the HMD is working normally, without basestations, the display should power on with a green led on the side of the HMD and the display will show a solid grey color. You'll require basestations to display anything other than that grey screen.

@Dwatters, there is a optical sensor in between the lenses that detects if a person is wearing the HMD. You can block with this your finger to activate the screen and disable the "idle" mode. I'm not familiar with a SteamVR message that prompts users to move the HMD.

@Dwatters, unless your GPU is having issues driving the display, it should display a grey screen in this state. Try bypassing the USB and HDMI on the linkbox and plug these directly into your motherboard and GPU (keep power flowing through the linkbox).
