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
Sing it a lullaby. :haha:
Also maybe set the power button to put it to sleep?
so with bios defaults, all periphs disconnected it still wont sleep. LoL. Oh well. Thanks for the suggestions guys. If i get it working ill post what i did.:haha:
Last shot, is there a BIOS update? Or give an older one a try..
Go the **** to Sleep - YouTube
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.
