Fans Run While in Standby
« on: 26-July-05, 09:13:09 »

I did look around and could only find one other person that asked this question, his solution was to change ACPI Standby State, well I don't have that in my bios. I don't think I have the latest and greatest, but I think it's newer then the first. I have a MSI K8T master2. I am running XP64, it goes in and out of standby with any problems, except this. What else should I be looking for?

I realy can't say.
But what happens if you test it with a normal 32 bit Windows?
Could be some driver thing.

You need to look for something in bios power management,that says(S3/STR) or (suspend to ram)that's what you need to set it to.

I have a couple of different options, but nothing like that...

1. Suspend Mode
this a setting with a time delay on it, I assume for the motherboard to put it into suspend, tried it with no success.
2.AC Loss Auto Restart
this is for what it sounds like in the manual for power failures
3.IRQ/Event Activity Detect
I went through this and found nothing that sounds like ram suspend, it just list different parts that can bring it out of suspend.

sounds like I am SOL, I think I am going to try and update the bios to see if they put anything new into it. Might have to call them to find out.

thanks

I just fixed the same problem on my sisters PC(fan running in sleep mode)by updating bios.Seems the last bios update caused the fan running problem,new bios fixed it.That was  a Asus Via board,with a Athlon 1800+.

Are you sure it does turn off, not going to sleep or something like that?

looking around the case some more, 2 fans do turn off when I put it in sleep mode. I sent a Email to MSI and they are telling me to update the bios, going to do that now and see what happens. Yea it's going into sleep mode, which is what I want.

well I found out that the new BIOS didn't fix the problem, created tons of OS problems though. Thankfully I made a backup of it before updating, no more OS issues, but still fans running while in standby.

it seems to be normal for my motherboard. I know that we have two powerspec machines in my house, I think both are intels though, when they go into standby, possitive it's standby, no fans, nothing, just power light.

Not all MB's react the same in Hybernate or Standby. You get what you get.

guess so, I will have to look at one more feature next time I upgrade, may not be a MSI though considering how picky this board is. Thanks for the help though. This is way better then the email support I got from MSI, simple email said to upgrade the BIOS, didn't say this feature wasn't there, didn't say that is how your board works, that is what I was going for, instead they told me to update my bios which give me major problems and didn't fix the problem. sorry, went on a rampage there....

Keep in mind that first this is a User to User forum. We can only go by our own experience as we have no insider info that tells us what this could be nor the schematics at hand to trace it out.

Second it has been my past experience that it usually has nothing to do with the MB at all. I have seen USB devices that won't go into standby hang the 5v high and that would leave the fans on if they run from 5v. I have seen PSU's that did not have the correct modes or were the wrong ATX version to allow sleep mode to workl. I have seen controllers that kept 5v high. I have seen cards that stopped it as well.

How can we know what this is.

Have you tried to isolate the system down to basics? Have you swapped out parts? Who knows. You did not say. You asked about the MB's sleep mode and we told you what we could on the subject. Heck most folks have no idea they even have a standby mode. Let alone what the difference between standby or hybernate is.

My point is you may have to do some of the tracking yourself.  You have not provided specs. You have only given a very little on how you have determined that the MB is even the cause.

So how do you expect us to be better help?

Likely as not if you chose not to go with MSI again then it is your own fault. You got frustrated by not getting help for a problem you perceive to be MSI's fault. Maybe it is. Who knows for sure as there has been no way to determine that from what little is in thios thread. Likely as not it is not the boards fault or we would be deluged by complaints here. The lack of complaints tells me it is more likely something else in your rig and not the MB at all.

Just some food for thought.

I would figure most folks would rather get to the bottom of things rather than toss out comments like that. HeHeHe
