Specs: Windows 7, i3-2120 Sandy 8gb Ram
Alright, Ive been helped many of times on this site, and i thank you guys once again for that.

I recently got my build going, about 2 weeks ago and its been all fine. The only thing i noticed is the motherboard wont sleep or hibernate.

So first thing i did was go into win 7 options and make sure hibernate is enabled and it is.

This is what happens. I hit hibernate or sleep, and the computer shuts down and the lights go off, and like 5 seconds later the computer starts right back up.

So anyone know what the issue may be?

i3-2120 Sandy Bridge
Asus P8H61-M B3 Motherboard
2x4GB Corsair ram
Radeon HD 6770 Video card
Seagate 1.5 TB 3gb/s hdd

Problem solved for sleeping.

"Change Power Settings" >>> "Change Plan Settings" >>> "Change Advance Power Settings" >>> "Multimedia Settings" >>> "When Sharing Media" >>> and make sure the setting says "Allow the computer to sleep."

And that worked for me.

Hibernating still no luck, powercfg wont enable it. Oh well, would like to use it but i guess sleep is just fine. Sorry for pointless post

✔ Best Answer

Separate Sleep and Hibernate is best for portables, the sleep that works for desktops by default is called sleep but it is hybrid sleep (see link above). This is actually better for desktops. If the sleep now works (hybrid sleep), I would recommend leaving it that way. Sleep for laptops uses more energy but wakes faster. Hibernate for laptops uses less energy but takes a little bit longer to wake. Sleep for desktops is from what I understand better for hard drives, memory and such as it is moves memory to hard drive and powers down lower like hibernate, but since you are not as concerned with a little bit of power draw, still wakes faster.

I hope that this helps.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
