Standby Issue

  alflavor 11:12 17 Mar 2007

I reinstalled XP home yesterday after having major slowdown issues with my PC. This has resolved my problems, and I am back up and running (thank god for Mozy backup)

However I seem to be going into standby after a period of 10 minutes or so - yet I have turned off all power saving option in control panel.

I never had this problem before. I am back up and running with same drivers etc as before.

How can I possibly resolve this?

Boot to BIOS and check Power option in BIOS is set to use OSpower option.

There seems to be quite a few power options in my bios - could you give me more information?

Hi alflavor,

Have you checked 'Control Panel' 'Display' 'ScreenSaver' and set to 'blank' 'wait seven minutes' this can seem as though the computer is going into standby mode.

When you say, 'There seems to be quite a few power options in my bios '. Let the forum know what these options are as we dont even know what BIOS you have onboard your computer. All these BIOS setting's can point to a problem that the experts here can resolve.

Good luck with my guess.

Thanks - the screen saver is set to XP, and 10 minutes. I know the pc is going into standby as I see it doing so whilst I am using it - so it isn't just the blank screensaver.

OK, so all day it's been doing this standby thing, yet since 6 pm it's all OK. Very strange behaviour - have scanned for viruses, nothing. I will try and post some more BIOS info if anyone can help and thinks it could be that..?

Ok, if anyone can help further here are my Power Management Setup BIOS current settings:

ACPI Function - Enabled
Modem Ring Resume - Disable
ACPI Suspend Type - S1 POS
C2 Disable/Enable - Disabled
Power Management Option - User Define
HDD Power Down - Disabled
Video Off Option - Suspend>>Off
Video Off Method - V/H Sync and Blank
Modem Use IRQ - 3
Soft Off by PWRBTN - Instant- Off
Power On by PCI Card - Disabled
RTC Alarm Resume - Disabled

Could altering any of these help perhaps? Thanks to anyone who is helping me!

I guess no-one could help. I will only bump once, to see if anyone can help!!
