Section 2-7 of my manual talks about power management setup. Help me through this.
1. ACPI Suspend type
Specifies the ACPI sleep state when the system enters suspend.
Option 1 : S1(power on suspend).
In S1 slee state, the system appears suspended and stays in a low power mode.
Option 2 : S3(suspend to ram, default).
In S3 sleep state, the system appears to be off and consumes less power than in S1 state. When signaled by a wake-up device or event, the system resumes to its working state exactly where it was left off.
2. Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN
Configures how to turn off the computer in MS-DOS mode using the power button.
Pretty straightforward... I`ll skip.
3. PME Event Wake Up
Allows the system to be awakened from an ACPI sleep state by a wake-up signal from a PCI or PCIe device. Note: To use this fct, you need power supply providing at least 1A on the +5VSB lead. Default enabled.
This is my power supply:http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139006
4. Power On by Ring
Allows the system to be awakened from an ACPI sleep state by a wake-up signal from a modem that supports wake-up function. (default enabled)
5. Resume by Alarm
Power on the system at a desired time... simple enough. Skip.
6. HPET Support
Enables or disables High Precision Event Timer for windows vista operatin system. (default enabled).
7. HPET Mode
allows you to select the HPET mode for yhour windows vista operatin system. 32 bit, 64 bit. (32 bit by default, I use windows 7 64-bit).
8. Power on by mouse
9. Power on by keyboard
10. KB power on password
11. AC Back Function
Determines the state of the system after the return of power from an AC power loss.
Soft Off : the system stays off upon the return of the AC poer. (default)
Full On : the system is turn on upon return of the AC power.
Memory : the system returns to its last know awake state upon the return of the AC power.
Okay, so... dndhatchet mentioned disabling wake on features. Before I do, what exactly are these and how can they relate to my problem. Which ones should I disable?
