    To fix sleep mode problem try turning off network adapters, and audio controllers. Go to device manager and then go to power management, to turn off these devices
    Ok, I right clicked my computer, pressed manage, then I went to device manager, but I cannot find anything that says power management.
    Mate power management is usually in the Control Panel > Power options.
    Hmm, that's not what I'm looking for, unfortunately. Thanks for the reply, but what Arianna3 is suggesting is something different, but I'm not sure exactly what. Arianna3 said to go to device manager and then power management, but I do not see power management in Device manager, and when I go to the normal power management under control panel, there's no options for turning off network adapters or audio controllers. Also, under the control panel power management, there is no option for having the computer automatically go into sleep mode after a certain period of time. I wonder if this is a drawback of the motherboard/cpu I just installed, but I have no idea.

    Go to device manager, click on network adapters, click on the controller displayed under network adapters and you will see power management

    Thanks anyway, but I managed to fix the problem by reinstalling my graphics drivers.

    To clarify for any other readers

    Device manager> Expand Network adapters> Right click on the adapter> Properties...THEN you'll see Power management

    Administrator/permissions problems after transfer to new mobo/cpu


    As the title says, ever since I transferred my HDD over to my new motherboard, I've been having all kinds of problems with administrator access and permission to access certain folders and what not.

    For example, at least one of the games on my HDD won't work unless I run as administrator, even though I never needed to do that on my old mobo. Other problems include: certain programs not being able to start or complete some task because I need to run them as administrator, even though I didn't need to before the transfer; google chrome not being able to install some extensions unless it is run as administrator (I also just figured out why one of my extensions wasn't working. It couldn't or didn't have permission to access a folder in the Chrome appdata), and internet explorer not downloading anything unless I run as administrator.

    So, my question is how I am supposed to re-give my account administrative control so my programs work without me having to find out what folder is causing the problem just so I can go open the folder and confirm administrator access?

    Thank you for helping.

    Hi All,

    I wonder if anyone has ever gone through what I'm about to do. Basically, the machine I'm currently using a sysprep image coming from an old hard drive and motherboard. This time around, I'm planning to change my processor as discussed on this thread:

    Will an AMD FX-6300 work with an AsRock N68C-GS FX

    I'm planning to once again sysprep my system to be ready for the newly installed processor. Will it work? Do I need to do it in the first place?

    There are almost as many answers and opinions about this as there are geeks . My stand should already be known, I always refer to this:

       Note
    Important

    You must use the Sysprep /generalize command to generalize a complete Windows installation before you can use the installation for deployment to a new computer, whether you use imaging, hard disk duplication, or another method. Moving or copying a Windows image to a different computer without running the Sysprep /generalize command is not supported.
    (Warning from a Microsoft TechNet support article, also shown at very beginning of this tutorial.)

    Replacing processor counts as "new computer". In my opinion, based on quite a long experience, I recommend you to generalize your Windows installation with Sysprep before replacing the CPU.

    If doing so, please do not forget this (also told in tutorial):

       Warning
    Using this method causes Windows 7 to lose all activation information, and it needs to be reactivated afterwards. If your Windows 7 is an OEM version, you might not be able to reactivate it, at least not without phone activation option.

    Thanks for the input. I'm too lazy to re-install everything as it will take a lot of time. It's easier to re-activate Windows and some other applications tied to the GUID of the PC. Hopefully I get to replace it in the coming weeks.
