Power Options

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to get my computer to go to "Sleep" when I leave it unattended. Right now it will turn off the HDD and monitor. But will not stop all molex power. I know it used to do this, but as of right now. It will not. How can I get it back to doing this, it was such a nice feature.

The computer never really powers down during "Sleep." When the computer goes to Sleep, power is still being fed through the mobo because the state is being stored in the RAM (which is volatile, as you may know).

I think what you may be looking for is "Hibernate." Hibernate stores the states on to non-volatile memory (the HDD, for instance), and that allows the computer to power down completely.

It used to turn off the fans and pump everything on "Sleep" though... Hibernate if anything is slower than just powering on/off...?

Yeah, Sleep puts the computer into a very low power state, but there is still power. It's not completely shut down. Depending on your configuration, your fans and such may slow or turn off.

You would boot up faster if you hibernate as opposed to just shutting down entirely. It just uses some HDD space to store the state. It can also be buggy sometimes, too.
