What happens is the OS completely powers down and all peripherals turn off (keyboard is off and no lights on mouse), but the main components remain powered on. I have Quick Boot or whatever it is called turned off and I was even running my stock voltage BIOS config instead of my undervolted configuration.
What can I do to try and fix this? Has anyone experienced this themselves or have any idea of what could cause it? This was happening before I installed my 840 Pro, so I know it must be hardware related and not related to any software (guess that is kind of obvious since the OS is completely powered off). Could RAM do this? The problem is I can't recreate the problem, it does it randomly. Sometimes it will shut off immediately and other times it will hold up for 30 seconds and turn off. This is the first time I have ever seen it refuse to turn off completely.
Start over, and set bios defaut
Add your changes, then double check everything in bios
then check the normal and advanced power settings in the OS
However, you have the added complication of using Quick Boot..........honestly, w/ my poor experience in trying all the extra intel/asrock software, that's the likely culprit.
My pc doesn't like to Sleep...your's wants to wake up (or stay awake)...................these are always stupid but difficult situations to resolve.
Most often, this is a settings/Windows Setttings problem....you don't see this much w/ Apple or Linux.Edited by dekruyter - 1/15/13 at 4:26am
