i tried the below & the PC still wakes up after a few seconds :-(
strangely, when the PC is not used for a while, sleep mode works fine after
a few minutes of use. If i use hte PC for an hour or so, it won't want to
sleep. Could there be some sort of temperature sensor on teh motherboard that
trigger teh O/S to wake up, so that the fans get activated ? motherboard =
Asus P5B deluxe
any help much appreciated - the PC is in the living room, used as a media
center & this lack of sleep mode ruins the whole thing :-(
