Vista compatability issue

Since I have loaded Vista, sometimes the computer will not come out of sleep mode and sometimes when it does, the moniter stays in sleep mode. Is this a compatability issue with the motherboard? Any suggestions? Other than that, everything is going well. Enjoying Vista.

AMD 64x2 3800

  1. Which Nvidia drivers are you using?

    There is known issues with current Nvidia drivers and Vista not allowing the monitor to come up when resuming from stand-by.

    I would also check your bios settings and update the bios to your current version if you haven't already.
  2. The ASUS forums have some pretty good suggestions, but start out with the BIOS settings for Power Savings and Sleep. Things like Plug 'n Play OS, etc., causes problems on top of the mentioned NVidia driver situation.

    Disable sleep mode and just have the monitor turn off. If your running a process like downloading with FTP, Torren, etc. Vista will sleep and pause any transfers. So to me this is something to turn off.
