Hoi Hoi

I've got a problem with standby mode in XP. Its that the fans inside the Tower doesnt actually Shut off. The monitor goes into standby ok.

I've looked into BIOS to see if theres an option there but cant seem to find one which relates to Power modes etc.

This PC is home built only about a month ago.

Just wondering if you guys can give me further advice on this.

have you checked which fan[s] are staying on - the cpu fan connects to the mobo and should go off but any additional fans connecting through the normal drive power sockets will not.
