Windows 7: Win7 immediately comes out of standby

Win7 immediately comes out of standby

Hello everyone,

I'm having an issue that I also had with the Windows 7 Beta.

Basically, power management does not work.

My monitor does not go to sleep after the set amount of time.

Standby doesn't work at all -- even if I manually put it into standby, it comes right back out immediately.

My BIOS is set to use S1&S3 suspend. The motherboard isn't that old so it certainly is ACPI 2.0 compliant. (It is an Asus P5N32-E SLI, which is an nForce 680i board)

I MUST have working power management, so I'm pretty disappointed by this.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!

PS I have already disabled WOL for my network card.

Are you referring to the build number? I'm using 7100, the official RC.

I've had a similar issue with my girlfriend's computer, on Windows XP and Windows Seven. She got a desktop, not a laptop, and when using hibernate or sleep, the computer wakes-up after a few seconds, up to a minute.

I'm currently investigating and I might have found the problem. It could be due to Skype.

If you got skype, could you verify if the problem is still there when skype is quit?

I do not use Skype, so that cannot be what is causing me problems.
