Fans still spinning in sleep mode

Last response: in Motherboards

I want to put my computer into sleep, but if I choose "S1 (Sleep)", the fans and lights are on. In BIOS I have only S1 and S3 to choose. (Maybe S2 would solve my problem, but BIOS does not give me the option)
I need to enter sleep mode, where I can restore it very fast (Windows resuming after hibernation takes more time then normal boot).

I would be very happy, if there is a possibility to put my computer into sleep where is no noise from fans and no lights (fans with LED and one blue diode).

Fans are power-supplied by PSU with molex, so it has maybe no influence to the board settings. (It could be...) :( 

Thanks to those who can help me :)

Check the system suspend settings in BIOS.

U should have AUTO, S1 or S3. Using S3 should get your PC to sleep.

Hi nikorr

BIOS gives me only S1 and S3 options.
S3 puts it into hibernation.
