Power Management Inconsistencies
I will just copy and paste what I have wrote in another forum. I really want to get to the bottom of this issue...
This might not necessarily be a motherboard problem, however I am sure you technical people can help.
I am baffled as to why sometimes my system will go to sleep, and sometimes it will not in the same situation.
Generally, I will watch a number of episodes of a TV show using VLC player. I generally create a playlist of episodes and then I rely on my system:
1 - Turning the monitor off after 15 minutes
2 - Going to sleep after 20 minutes
However, it seems to me that over the last few nights my system just decides whether or not to go to sleep. The monitor will turn off, however the system will stay on and I cannot detect why. I cannot seem to pinpoint the variable, here.
Maybe it is some background process running, I do not know. All I know is that I should not have to worry about this at all. If I set my system to do these 2 things, then the system should do these two things.
Can anyone help me with this - somewhat - annoying issue?
