    Default EX58-UD4P with Windows7 64bit refuses to go to sleep

    Ive been trying for months now trying to find a solution and getting nothing. I got it to sleep one time but since then get nothing. My system is overclocked to 4.1ghz, but Ive even put settings back to stock 2.66ghz and still no change.

    Basically the problem is this, you choose SLEEP in windows and it blacks the screen, acts like its about to go to sleep, and right back to the windows desktop. This process takes no more than 5secs. Everytime you do this you go right back to the desktop.

    Ive made sure ever driver I have is upto date based on the latest programs/drivers thread in the sticky. Im running F10d bios. I tried F10k today but that didnt play well with my USB Scanner for some reason, it refused to get past the POST screen with it connected. I tried F10h awhile back and that was no good for me because it doesnt auto control my PWM CPU fan. Only the F10d seems to properly control the PWM fan (which is a Scythe fan).

    So not sure what else to try. Again got the latest 2.39 Realtek sound, latest Nvidia driver for my GTS250 card, latest AHCI driver, latest everything I can get a hold of. Ive removed all USB devices thinking maybe its that, no change. So its definetely not some periphial USB device causing it.

    Any help would be appreciated. I would love to sleep this as it would be great to come back to the comp and just move the mouse or hit a key and be back to a full desktop without having to wait for a full boot sequence (as right now I actually turn it off since I dont want to waste power).

    have you tried re-flashing with f10k bios and loading optimised defaults? make a note or save your overclock settings beforhand or it will wipe them.try that and see if it enters sleep with all stock settings then apply your overclock

    Thanks wazaa300. I just figured it out. I decided one more time to just load the optimized defaults using stock 2.66hz speeds and all I changed was the IDE to AHCI on the ICH10 ports. I rebooted and then noticed my box went straight into windows.

    Let me explain, I have two drives, one that boots Snow Leopard (hackintosh running a PC EFI 10 bootloader) and this other one that boots Win7. I always set my HDD priority in Bios to choose the Snow Leopard because the bootloader lets me select Windows, Snow Leopard, etc. Unfortunately I have to use that bootloader since its one of these retail builds where I didnt modify the OS.

    So long story short since I forgot to change the boot order it went straight into windows7, no biggie. Tried sleep, BAAM! went to sleep. Woke up fine.

    So I decided to put the HDD boot priority back to the OSX bootloader, while still running stock optimized defaults. What you know, it wont sleep now, does same as above, goes to sleep (screen goes black) few seconds later comes right back to the desktop. So clearly its this damn OSX bootloader.

    So I put my Overclock settings back (saved the profile in BIOS). Again booted straight into my Win7 drive, sleep works, wake works.

    This somewhat sucks, I guess I could hit the boot button at startup to pick my OSX when I need to.

    Yeap thats what I meant, will just have to use that option from now on, trying to mess around with that bootloader to figure out why is going to be a time consuming nightmare. I gaurantee its sending Win7 the wrong ACPI stuff. Thats what this bootloader does, it injects a slew of stuff for OSX to make it think its all there and retail computer. So I assume its also doing the same on Windows and jacking it up as well.
