Annoying pen out of range popup

HP Recommended
HP ZBook Studio x360 G5 convertible workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

New laptop, provided with discount by TU Delft for a lot of students. It comes with the HP Active Pen. 


I want to deactivate the annoying message HP Pen is out of range. 


I've deactivated the pen alerts in the HP pen control app (installed by default) by unchecking the alerts box . But after a restart the box is checked once again.


Notice  the default is Pen settings which does not have any option to activate or deactivate alerts. 


I've deleted the HP pen control app, this did not solve the popups


It is possible to download other pen settings applications, but maybe the popup can be deactivated with the control panel or 

anything else.


Any idea to get rid of the Pen is Out of range popup?


Thanks in advance

I also have the same issue, but ... I don't mind having the software on there (if it's useful) ... but my pen won't wake up unless I literally plug it in, which seems insane.


So I don't so much wish to turn it off, more ... make it actually mean something, because I can't make it go away even by 'activating' the pen!
