Windows 7: Inconsistent suspend behavior

Inconsistent suspend behavior

I am using Windows 7 RC x64 on a nForce 420 based motherboard. The suspend to ram function is not working properly sometimes.

I have Windows configured to automatically suspend to PC after 30 min of being idle. This automatic suspend works well, suspending the PC completely, shouting down the fans, and leds of the PC, and can only be weaken up by pressing the on/off button in the case of the PC. After waking up from this state, I see that the temps of the GPU and the CPU are way down, proving that they were in sleep status.

However, when I suspend manually (by pressing the suspend button on the keyboard, or by chossing suspend in the Start menu) the PC doesn't suspend completely. The fans and leds doesn't shout down, and the temp of the CPU and GPU after wake up are very close to the temps when idle, showing that they didn't enter in sleep state. When suspended manually, I can wake the PC just by touching any button of the mouse or keyboard.

What is the problem? Is there a way I can manually completely suspend the PC? I checked on internet and in the forums an didn't found any solution to this problem.

There are two modes of suspend, if you will, sleep and hibernate. Check your power profile and see which is happening after 30 minutes. Are you selecting sleep or hibernate in the start menu? I don't show "suspend", I show sleep & hibernate as options.

When i said suspend i ment sleep. I am using the spanish version of Windows and use the wrong translation of the word "suspender". In both cases it is sleeping, not hibernating, but when done automatically it appears to be using a deeper sleep state.

I found the solution to my problem. I had to disable "Allow this device to wake computer" on the keyboard, mouse and network card. Now the sleep function works perfectly. Thanks ronpeck from w7forums.com!
Is there a way to mark this thread as solved?

Glad you got it sorted out! I had to do that too - everytime I put my keyboard to charge it would keep waking the PC .

Nah, the thread will die its own slow death ...

Inconsistent WEI
I have two W7x64s installed on the same machine but each OS is installed on its own separate physical hard drive. The WEI for #1 OS is 6.8/7.4/6.0/6.0/5.9 while that for #2 is 6.9/7.4/7.4/7.4/5.9. I wonder why there are so much difference between the two for the graphic performances. The two...

How do you normally suspend your computer?
Just a question out of curiosity, I'm wondering how you guys normally suspend your computer. As in hibernation, shutdown, sleep, or yank the powercable and remove the battery hehe. Personally, ever since 7, I pretty much always simply leave my computer in sleep mode. Wakeups are so quick, and...
