Fans don't turn off during sleep (standby), why?

I don't have power management settings in bios so I can't set anything to S3.

I have a p8z77-v pro from Asus.
Intel i7 3770k
NZXT Phantom case

I don't know what I could have done to cause this change but I just changed motherboards and it's still doing this.

Sometimes I'll press sleep button and it goes to sleep no problem, but most of the time it goes into sleep but fans stay on

Do you have something called "Smart Connect" or something like that installed?

There is a program you can setup that will check facebook and stuff periodically while the computer is "supposedly" sleeping. That could cause what you are describing.
