Small issue with putting my PC in sleep mode.

Hi all! I have a slight problem, was hoping someone may be able to help me out. Whenever I put my PC into sleep mode, all of the case lights and fans stay on. Any ideas on why this may be? It's not a huge issue for me, I can just shut the PC down. It would be so much easier if I could get it to sleep mode and have everything shut off.

    Sleep is a power-saving state. Sleep saves all open documents and programs, and allows the computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer to sleep is like pausing a DVD player: the computer immediately stops what it’s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

    While your computer is asleep, its hardware lights may slowly flash or change color. This is normal.


    You can read up on the different options in the article.
  2. in your bios, go to power options and change the sleep mode to s3. Try to find something similar that has s3, this may or may not fix the light problem. For me it did
  3. Thanks, I'll have to check that out.
