The other day I noticed the case no longer "powers down" when my Vista Home 64 goes into sleep mode. It used to do this when I first installed, but not any more. I looked at the ntbtlog.txt and noticed it was saying the: Did not load driver @hal.inf,%acpiapic.devicedesc%;ACPI x86-based PC also the Did not load driver @netrasa.inf,%mp-l2tp-dispname%;WAN Miniport (Many different ones and none causing caution signs in Device manager).
***side note, I did a motherboard replace, same maker, same model (Gigabyte MA-78gm-S2H), as my northbridge went bad, after this is when I noticed my problem, BIOS ver is the same****
The computer seems to be running fine, maybe a little slow at boot (1+min) and shutdown (1 min) but other than that, it seems ok. Everything is normal in my device manager and event viewer shows no errors now after unplugging my Microsoft LifeCam that was hanging my boot up.
Since it's running fine and boot isn't terribly long, should I even worry about these? Vista seems to go to sleep fine but of course the Case will not turn off the fans like it used to where all I would have to do is hit the power button and it would turn right back on to where I was.
Also, about the WAN miniports, I have seen some forums saying it is ok to uninstall WAN miniport, but will I see any difference in boot time if I do this? Are they even necessary? I've tried disabling them, but that doesn't work.
