    Hibernate/sleep issues

    hello,

    I recently finished assembling a new i7 system.

    I'm having problems with hibernate/sleep in Vista. Since I've reinstalled Vista, I've been unable to get the "hibernate" option to appear under the start menu.

    Also, when I do put it on sleep mode, the screen goes blank, however, the system seems to remain on. I just get a flashing power light and the fans remain on.

    Are there settings in the BIOS/Windows I'm missing?

    You're missing the Asus ATK0110 driver. It should be there in Windows Updates. If not, download it from Asus's website (or use the driver disc).

    Re: Hibernate/sleep issues

    Ah, damn it. I had no idea what that was for, so I just stopped the update from popping up.

    Once I have installed it, what settings should I use in the BIOS? There is a reference to ACPI, but I have absolutely no clue about these sorts of things.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Any idea on what I should do about getting the hibernate option up in windows?

    Open up power options, and change the power button value to hibernate. No BIOStardary required.
