    Opus 150W shutdown problems

    I have the Opus 150W (w/ Biostar mod) powering my Biostar M7NCG v7.2 & Athlon XP-M 2200+. I have a toggle switch on Yellow (+12V and Ground) for power-on/power-off w/ the Red connected to +12V and Black connected to Ground. The system powers up/resumes w/ no problems. The system will also go into standby & hibernate w/ no problems, however when I try to shutdown, it just won't do it. I've went though the Opus 150W manual & tried to follow that as close as possible, but I can't seem to get it to shutdown. I'm beginning to think that the Biostar mod really wasnt done.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated...Thanks

    A bit of an update on this. I purchased this from the Opus store, so I've contacted them on this. Hopefully, something will come of this

    Yea, from what I had read, there was an incompatibility between the Opus 150W and the Biostar M7NCG. This being that the Opus does not shutdown the system.

    EDIT: The Biostar mod is not a shutdown mod, it's a start up mod...

    What exactly does Windows do when you hit shutdown? Nothing? I'm not sure what you mean when you say it isn't working.
    I'm trying to remember but I'm almost certain that if the mod wasn't done to your Opus then it wouldn't hibernate either. If I recall when I didn't have the mod it wouldn't hibernate either.

    When I flip the switch off (to cut +12V to the IGGN/Yellow Wire) & wait the 10 seconds nothing happens at all, the system remains powered on. When I set the Power Options > Advance to Hibernate or Stand by then flip the switch off (after a reboot), then those functions work appropriately.

    I just got an email back from Opus, basically I was wrong on what the modification was. According to them, if the mod wasn't applied then the m/b wouldn't go through the boot process & to make sure the BIOS is set to S3 mode. Of course. S3 mode isn't available on the M7NCG 400 v7.x. This being the case, it seems to be a limitation of the m/b itself. I'll have to find out more from other M7NCG 400 v7.2/Opus 150W owners...

    Are you sure you don't have S3? I have: S1, S3, S1 & S3 on mine (same mb).

    I checked the M7NCG 400 Manual and it mentioned that S3 isn't available on the M7NCG 400 v7.x. I also checked the BIOS Power Management Setup & saw no mention of S1, S3, S1 & S3. However, according to the M7NCG 400 BIOS Setup Manual I downloaded, there should be an additional ACPI Suspend Type option, which isn't listed in my BIOS.
