Standby issues. Seriously confused here.
AAAh. Okay, wait. Serious standby issues.
It was working great until I did the following:
1. Bought a $12 LED case fan and plugged it into the 3-prong fan pin on my epia.
2. Downloaded and installed Motherboard Monitor [ From http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=204 ].
3. Turned it back on.
Before, it used to go to standby and kill the USB power because it's powered off my +5 line. Now, any sort of standby and it goes crazy! No matter how I try to turn off the power (standby, hibernate, or shut down) it will turn right back on after completing the respective shutdown cycles EVEN WITH THE KEY REMOVED FROM THE IGNITION.
WHAT THE ****!
I tried uninstalling the software and removing the fan and standby still messes up! I even did a bios reflash and it still messes up. Now I've set it to hibernate at all times and it's working the same as it did before the meet. And I've plugged the fan into the normal 4-pin molex.
1. I did plug the fan into the motherboard 3-prong while the system was on standby. Could that have done something permanent to my standby capabilities?
2. Is there anything that the motherboard monitoring software could have changed that uninstalling wouldn't fix?
I really love standby and I would love to have a fan that works and even better works alongside some motherboard fan and temp monitoring software.
