    Default PC reboots immediately after being put to sleep

    I have built a new PC with a Z170 Extreme Motherboard. Since there are only 6 SATA ports on it, I needed a PCIe expansion card. I am running 5 HDD, 2 optical drives and the case has a built in dock, which is handy for cloning etc.
    The expansion card is an Asmedia 106x SATA Card, to which the 2 optical drives are connected.
    Whenever it is installed, the PC will reboot immediately after being put to sleep.

    Same thing with me; only it happens after a hard shutdown in Win7. I have Win7 (my primary OS) on a hybrid connected to SATA0, and Win10 on an mSATA SSD in an Asmedia 106x-compliant PCIe card. Every once in a while, hours after a hard shutdown of Win7, my machine reboots. If I perform a hard shutdown in Win10, the machine stays shut off until I hit the ON button in the front to boot it up.

    Methinks the Asmedia device or driver interferes with the activation/deactivation of the machine. Which OS is your primary OS?

    My OS is Win7. After all the frustration I decided to potentially throw good money after bad, and bought a different SATA expansion card, made by Sunix. Initially, the problem persisted, but after a while, presumably the 30 minute timeframe set for the PC to go to sleep, it did and stayed asleep. It woke up upon moving the mouse, and I have been able to invoke the sleep mode from the start button eve since.
    Thank you to all who took an interest in my post, and keep up the good work exposing the undocumented features in hardware and software.
