Windows 7: Sleep Mode affecting front panel LED power light?

Sleep Mode affecting front panel LED power light?


I just had my new build finished and it's been running for a day. Well, I'm new to windows 7 and I hadn't turned off sleep mode yet. Well, I stepped away for a few and came back to find that my pc was in sleep mode. I reeactivated the pc and everything kicked back on except for the blue power led on the front panel of my HAF 932 case. The hd led was working just fine but the power light has not turned on since. At first I thought that the LED went bad, but I realized that this only happened after sleep mode. It was fine just before sleep mode. I since then turned off sleep mode but no power led. After reading a bit about Windows 7 I have realized that there is a possibility that sleep mode caused this. What do you guys think? If Windows 7 is the reason than how can I fix it?

Thanks a bunch

Check your connections to the front panel switches on the motherboard. It is possible that one of the leads has worked loose.
