    Hmmmm...hpet is set to 32bit...gotta be honest - I have no idea what that does but I will switch it to 64 bit asap....

    Yes, set HPET to 64 if you use x64 OS.

    Did you know you can disable the sleep function on the start menu, change it to never sleep and change power buttons to power off instead of sleep? If you didn't that may be why it is always going to sleep on you

    And the default to sleep is 20 minutes, you can change that as well, you know that right?

    Yes, I would get a new CMOS battery just to be sure, they are cheap let ($0.40-0.50) let me know if you need to know where to order a few.

    As for settings causing this, could be but not too likely. Please post your full specs and a link to your memory, then fill out a template from my signature with your current BIOS version and full setting used.

    Thanks!

    Again - the sleep window or length of time it goes to sleep - is not an issue. Ideally - if Windows 7 was anywhere as good as Vista was for Power Management - I could switch to High Performance, the machine would stay on all the time when I need it and I would manually put it to sleep at night for backups etc.

    But Windows 7 is hapless when compared to Vista - specifcally - it simply will not honor the "return to sleep timeout" value of 120 seconds like Vista does. So I have to put up with the shortest "Sleep after" time frame I can deal with - which is 30 minutes. If I set Win7 to sleep after 1 or 2 hours or god forbid - never...this idiotic event will fire, wake the box and then instead of going back to sleep in 120 seconds - like it should - according to the "Return To Sleep" timeout value - the box will instead look to the "Sleep after" value and stay powered on for 1 hour or 2 hours or never - if the High Performance plan is in play.

    I have a new CMOS battery and will be popping that in shortly.

    My BIOS is F11 and my settings are Optimized Defaults...I do not adjust anything...except the Power Management stuff and the HPET as you mentioned....I will post it up when I get thru this rebuild this weekend...

    Cheers!

    Ahh ok, I wasn't sure if you knew all that or not so I was checking to be sure.

    Sorry I have not used windows 7 to any extent to know there was a difference between how Vista vs. Win7 power plans managed sleep, they seemed the same to me but I have only ran quick test for users from time to time to be sure sleep was working in certain boards or BIOSes.

    I use Vista as my main OS

    Well the problem sounds to me like some Microsoft issue, do you feel the same? I mean with sleep, CMOS time aside it sounds to me like something you are not going to be able to change if this is really how bad Win 7 power plans work.

    OK, well good luck with the new CMOS battery and once you have time give me your specs and settings. Auto/default is not ideal and can cause issues, but those would be mainly stability and not really anything to do with this, but using proper settings might help you never know.

    Lsdmeasap,

    Thanks for the followup. I should mention that this mobo will be switching duties today as it moves from the office machine to my studio to power my main recording machine. As much as this "system time" thing is a pain - this custom box will have a much different purpose and schedule and the Power Plan will be set to High Performance right from the get-go since I can't have my recording machine going to sleep at any time.

    However - I would like your input on the absolute best BIOS settings so that I can get maximum performance from this new build as a recording box. So - do I just fill out the P45/P35 template and post the text of that here? It would be wonderful to get your input on my settings - and your suggestions for the best settings - right when I go to rebuild this thing - which will be later this afternoon. Then I could put the settings into play and hopefully get an optimum state right out of the box - so to speak.

    So firstly here's the rig specs - as the board will exist in the new studio build:

    • CPU: Intel Core™2 Quad Processor Q9550
    • Motherboard: Gigabyte EP45-UD3R
    • Graphics: eVGA 8600 GT 256MB PCI-E
    • Network: Realtek RTL8168C/8111C PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC
    • Audio: RME HDSPe Multiface II
    • Memory: 8GB Mushkin HP2-6400 (996587)
    • Optical 1: Pioneer DVR-212D (SATA)
    • Optical 2: Plextor Premium CD-R (PATA)
    • HD1: Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200.12 (ST3500418AS)
    • HD2: Seagate 500GB Barracuda 7200.12 (ST3500418AS)
    • HD3: Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12 (ST31000528AS)
    • HD4: Antec Easy SATA Docking Station
    • Case: Antec P182
    • PSU: Corsair VX 550W PSU
    • OS: Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

    BIOS settings to come...

    Cheers!

    I am going to have to test windows 7 power plans myself to see what it is you are actually seeing, just so I know for future reference. Can you please tell me the easiest way that I can experience this issue, using the High Performance power plan.

    As for settings, these below are for stock setup, if you need overclock settings let me know and I will give you a good starting point then you will need to tweak and test until you find the sweet spot.


    Looks like you need to load optimized defaults again before you get started, please do so and save/apply/reboot BACK to the BIOS, then set your SATA/Disk settings again and anything else you need to then apply and reboot again then enter the settings below. I say this because it looks like you had an older CPU in before this one right? I see 266 FSB and CPU multi 9, when your CPU (9550) is 8.5 multi and 333 FSB, so loading optimized would be suggested before you get started. If you are using RAID be very careful that after you do that you reboot right back to the BIOS to set RAID again before you let windows load, otherwise your array will be corrupted.
