  • Hej all

    I don't know if this is a bug in Win 7 or what, but i tryed to get my Pc to sleep, as i use to, also in Win7, but Yestaday my Pc went bad, it restarted my Pc an set my BIOS to its default values hmm...

    My System looks like this:

    Motherboard : Asus P5Q SE
    Ram : 8 GB DDR2 800 Mhz
    CPU : Intel C2D E8500
    OS : Windows 7 x86

    Ps. I also notest that the Win 7 x86 shows 8GB thats is something new ;)

  • I have the same problem - common point is the Asus P5Q SE mboard. Any sleep event causes the BIOS to reset to default values.

  • Same issue here, just installed Windows 7 64bit edition on ASUS P5Q Deluxe. Other notable hardware SkyStar 2 PCI card with BDA drivers installed. When it sleeps (hyrid sleep as per default) the BIOS gets reset. Phil

  • Possible solution here : http://www.sevenforums.com/network-internet/2959-sleep-issues-fixed.html I opted to keep the allow device to bring computer out of sleep checked, but additionally checked the magic packet only option. After a quick test, sleep works fine & I can bring it out of sleep remotely by sending it the magic packet :-))) Hope this works for you, cheers Phil
