GA-965P-S3 cannot wake from sleep

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello, I have vista 64bit and it's the worst mistake to click on sleep! When I turn computer on by button the LEDs are on, GPU fan is on 100%, but the hard drives don't start spinning, the keyboard LEDs don't flash and the video does not initialize! I had a very hard time making my computer start after this - hard power off by holding a button did not change anything - the next start was the same. Switching off the power supply on it's back and waiting did not help either. Then I rather removed the CMOS battery (because there is no clear CMOS jumper), switched off the power supply, disconnected power from the board and waited some minutes. This helped... and you know what? Windows woke from sleep - so it is definitelly a problem in motheboard or something. Not in the OS.

Yes there is a CMOS jumper, the three pins are there you would just have to plastic jumper from an old HD/CD/Floppy, thats what I did...

And what bios are you running?

It could be just about anything....

First, turn sleep mode off. If you want to shut ur PC off, then shut down. If not, running it 24/7 while may be a bit harsh on E bill is prolly the best thing for it, everytime it powers up, even from sleep mode its an electricl shock to the system..

Post back if you have this problem with sleep mode off... I have other suggestions then...

It was not an accident, I usually shutdown the computer, because I know sleep does not work well. Now I wanted to test it some more, because I would like to use this! I think I have quite the same problem with hibernation. An about that jumper - I think there are not even those 3 pins. There is only CLEAR_CMOS sign, but nothing near it. I have latest BIOS - F12. And about that electric shock - I am aware of it, but I really think the electricity bill and the unnecessary heat from my system (especially in this hot summer here is much worse then a slightly increased chance of some malfunction. I will probably change motherboard and all the other things much sooner than when anything goes wrong because of electric shocks

I had a similar problem using XP with that board... Seemed like the memory kept getting wiped out so the computer was just dead in the water with fans running.

I went into bios changed the resume setting to S1, rebooted, turned sleep off in windows, then changed it back to S3 rebooted. Turned sleep back on in the power controls and it works. However, I cannot resume from USB mouse or keyboard. Had to use a PS2 mouse adapter in order to resume from the mouse.
