HX450W S3 Standby & Hibernate


Recommended Posts



I just installed an HX450W and it will not shutdown fans (case, CPU & PSU) and peripherals (DVD's & a 12V VFD) when the computer goes into standby. The case light is flashing and I hear the HDD spin down so some of computer is in standby.

I've also tried Hibernate, the computer will write to the HDD, and then jumps straight out of hibernate back to normal operating.

I wonder if anyone has some ideas about what could be wrong.

Many Thanks

That type of problem would be more likely associated with the motherboard, BIOS or memory. I would run memtest86 on the system and make sure you do not get any errors to rule out a memory problem. And you may want to make sure you have the latest BIOS for the motherboard and then load setup defaults in the BIOS to see if you have the same results. If possible you may want to test the PSU in different system to rule it out completely.
