hi, i'm having trouble getting my computer to wake up after sleep mode, the hds spin down and the screen goes off but it never comes back on so i have to restart......i have an asus a7m266 mobo 1.4 gig athlon proc and 2 60 gb raid 0 hds running win2k with a 431 watt enermax psu......what should i do.......also do you guys recommend leaving the computer in sleep mode when you're not using it like overnight or should i just leave it on like it is? thanks
Suspend mode seems to give many people grief. In Control Panel|Power Options, try setting: Power Scheme (Always On), Turn Off Monitor After (you determine), Turn Off Hard Disk (Never), System Stanby (Never).
In BIOS settings under Power: Power Management (User Define), Video Off Option (Suspend -> Off), Video Off Method (DPMS OFF), HDD Power Down (Disabled), Suspend Mode (Disabled), PWR Button < 4 Secs (Soft Off)
I use these settings and never have problems anymore with the evil suspend mode.
