Nope.

Keeps power going to the RAM, but pretty much nothing else; it's like it suspends the computer's state, then resumes once you start it again

I had a G71gx it came with 12GB of memory.

3 Slots all with 4 GBs in them.

If your fans are still running in sleep, then your in S1 not S3 - and you're using barely any less power than with the full PC running.

Check the BIOS - there will be an option to select S1 or S3 (suspend or sleep).

How do I go into the bios and change this setting. Yeah I know I'm a uber noob.
