ASRock Z170M Extreme 4 - PC won't sleep

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,

 

I have a new PC that I made with an ASRock Z170M Extreme 4 motherboard. Everything works well except when I try to put the computer to sleep in windows (windows 10) the only thing that happens is the monitor will lose the signal but the computer won't sleep, all fans etc keep running.  Has anyone had any experience with this? I looked everywhere I could in the BIOs and I did't see any settings for it. The only thing I could find was a "deep sleep" mode, but I tried enabling that and it did not make any difference. 

 

Any info would be helpful! thank you.

More likely that a wake event woke up the PC again as it was putting it to sleep IMO. Check in the BIOS for wake events like wake on USB/LAN etc and disable what you don't want it to wake on. Then in windows go into power options and go through those also to check. I know from experience that wake on USB is very sensetive that even my wireless mouse woke my PC a few times when I just barely nudged my desk with my chair, I mean that you wouldn't have felt even how "hard" the chair hit the desk, it literally wouldn't have hurt a fly and seriously doubt the fly would have even flown off...pffft 9_9


Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.

Update: The computer will sleep now and I didn't change anything, so I'm not sure what happened...The only thing I did was try to update the BIOS with the live update feature in the BIOS but it said it had an error downloading files, so I dont think it actually updated.
