Modem won't wake P4P800-VM out of standby

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.asus (More info?)

Hi,

I've got a P4P00-VM running XP-PRO with an AOpen FM56-PX modem.

My problem is that the modem won't bring the computer out of standby when
someone in calls in.

- The modem answers calls when the system is running.
- In the modem's control panel Power Management settings, I've got "Allow
this device to bring the computer out of standby" checked.
- I can bring the system out of standby by means of the keyboard, so standby
itself seems to be working correctly.

I've messed around with the following BIOS settings:
- turned Power Management/APM off (normally enabled) (I thought this might
confuse Windows)
- enabled/disabled Power On by PCI devices (it's an internal modem)

with no success.

I'm beat. I don't know whether I'm messed up the Windows side or on the BIOS
side. I'm guessing the problem is on the BIOS side (doesn't seem to be much
to change in Windows). There's a whole bunch of power settings, but they're
pretty obscure.

Any suggestions, or pointers to useful web sites would be greatly
appreciated.

    The problem: I want my modem to bring my P4P800 out of standby when it
    receives a call.

    So, I played around a bit further, and found that if I set the BIOS Suspend
    Mode (in the Power menu) to "S1 (POS) only", the modem would wake up the
    computer. It would not in "S3 only" mode.

    In S1 mode, the fans stay on (power supply and CPU), which seems like a
    great way to grunge up the machine with dust unnecessarily.

    Is there any way I persuade the fans to go off in S1 mode?

    I know at a high level what S1 and S3 mean, but is there anything out there
    that describes what S1 and S3 really means in the context of a particular MB
    or BIOS implementation? Does S1 use noticeably more power than S3?

    I think I read that S1 turns off the disk drive and the monitor.
    The processor and RAM are still running. The fans are necessary to
    keep the system cool. In S3, the RAM is running in refresh mode,
    which doesn't draw too much power (3W or so on my comp with 2x256MB
    ram).

    Does S3 work OK by itself ? When you wake the computer from S3,
    are the contents of RAM OK (i.e. doesn't crash when coming out of
    S3) ?

    Is there any way to tell if the modem is getting power, while it
    is purportedly in S3 ? A modem isn't likely to have any LEDs on
    it, so it may be hard to figure out. Do the LEDs on a PCI LAN card
    light when in S3 ?

    Have you used dumppo.exe, the ACPI utility ? Maybe dumppo can tell
    you whether the hardware is compatible or not. Dumppo is a
    utility you can download from ftp.microsoft.com .

    HTH,
    Paul

    Thanks Paul,

    I beginning to suspect the modem card. I have an identical modem in a P4B,
    and it doesn't wake the computer up either, though the mouse and keyboard
    do.

    The BIOSs have power up on PCI device setting, but it doesn't seem to do
    anything. This whole power thing is deeply obscure and largely undocumented.

    Think I'll go back to the shop and see what they say.

    I've heard about this dumppo.exe, but I've never been able to find a
    download site. ftp.microsoft.com just has a lot empty directories. Looks
    like it hasn't been updated in a long time.

    Thanks again

    Ooh! Thanks! Didn't realize the oemtest was the place to look. Lots of cool
    stuff in there.
