GD-80 won't go to sleep.
I recently noticed that my computer(specs to the right) won't go to sleep when I tell it to. I will set it to sleep in W7 and sometimes it will shutoff, only to come on again, then shutoff, then on, off, etc, until I flip the switch on the psu and restart it the machine. The post code LED gives me 'FF' and sometimes 'd5' during this time.
-all cpu power saving features are disabled, sleep mode is S3, cpu overclock is stable (at least I think).
-recent hardware change: upgraded from 470 to 480.

I've tried bumping up the cpu coltage a few notches, no result, also RAM is not overclocked.

I will reset BIOS to default when I get home and see if it will sleep.
Hope my board isn't on it last leg. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Boo! cleared cmos, still is a problem. I guess no more sleeping for me.

Disconnect all peripherals (mouse etc) and see if it will time itself into a proper sleep.

A clean re-install of the graphics drivers may help, as I once had a couple systems disallow sleeping without updated drivers.

Also, I don't know what you've got for power option on that board, but maybe ENABLE some of them, pending what they are.

Good idea, ill try reinstalling my nvidia drivers. I think the problems started right about the time the latest drivers came out for BF3. That and default settings with all peripherals unplugged will the last thing I think I can do. thanks

Hehe. If only it was that easy.

I just rolled back to 280.26 nvidia drivers. All sleeping issues are now fixed. I think I try AMD for my next gpu.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 01:48 PM.
