    I have tried and still no result... May be some driver is missing- it is strange that nobody have that problem... More probably it is network issue- can somebody tell me how to set power parameters for both wired and wireless adapter.. I have home wireless router and using only wireless network, wired is always disconnected...
    To set your network adapters "wake on lan" settings, click the orb>control panel>hardware & sound>device manager>network adapters

    Here you right click each adapter, select properties, power management tab, and untick the box that says "allow this device to wake the computer". Reboot and give it a try.

    In this case I don't believe that WOL is going to be the culprit - the system is never entering a low power state to begin with, so the interference is from the OS side of things, not the BIOS hardware side.

    However, WOL may still restrict the system's ability to enter and *stay* in a low power state if this other issue is resolved, so keep that in mind as well, Ivan.

    *Also* your network card(s0 configuration page may *also* contain information regarding WOL - this can be controlled in the OS as well, not just in the BIOS anymore, at least for some NICs - on my Advanced tab at the bottom of that long list o items, There are 3 settings for Wake on - Magic Packet, pattern match, and WOL from PowerOff.... Again, those may be of interest to you later on if you machine continually wakes up once you get it to start entering sleep mode....Therefore my original statement in this post may be completely wrong and WOL *may* be the culprit after all - I didn't know until I went exploring that the OS can handle WOL / Magic packet monitoring.

    I know that you tried disabling the setting "Allow this device to wake the computer" but did you try disabling the *top* setting - Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power?

    Finally, since this is a wireless adapter, and the computer *does* go to sleep when you use wired, what software (other than the driver) did you install when getting the wireless NIC working?

    UPDATE: See Windows 7 (7000) Screen Saver

    We're beginning to think that it is actually broken in the OS...

    I have tried all the combinations in power settings of network adapters- no success... Intersesting thing is that it WORKS in very first moments after install 7000 buld with default network settings... It seems that some driver or program (I hsve installed just few of them is making problems)...

    We're beginning to suspect ACPI as a possible suspect.

    I know I have changed some things in my BIOS, but I am going to try an alternate route to see if it is in fact my BIOS settings or not ....

    Microsoft Wireless Keyboards


    In case any of you are using them, I remember issues with the Vista betas and MS wireless keyboards. Well, both my home PC and my work PC have MS keyboard sets. THey worked fine upto 6956. With 7000 both would not go to sleep and the screen saver never kicked in. Remove just the keyboard and all is fine. I never installed any drivers with either.

    For me the UAC is on, and my screen saver/power management is still not working. Still looking for a solution.
