I am using Windows Vista and although Vista will shut down when I click
Start->Shut Down (Vista closes and the monitor goes dark), but my fan
continues to run idefidintely. Any ideas on how to resolve the issue?

Maybe your CPU or the box itself is over temperature. Or you may have a
BIOS setting that keeps the fan on. Note that there is a power supply
that is always on so the start-button logic works. My guess is the fan is
running off of that rather than the normal +5 vdc supply.

Hi E.Lucius,

Check to make sure that you have your Power Plan Options set correctly for the sleep mode that you are using in Step Two of this tutorial.

Also check to make sure that you BIOS is set to the S3 Sleep state in Step Three of the same tutorial.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
