    XP does support hybrid sleep

    my current setup is:

    power button = standby
    idle 1hr = standby
    idle 3hr = hibernation

    1) turn key off m2-atx sends power button signal car pc goes to sleep
    2) 1hr passes its already in sleep mode (unless m2 misses the key switch or something then it goes into sleep)
    3) 3hr passes your pc will wake up and go straight to the black screen that says windows is preparing to hibernate

    i think this is over looked in XP because the only way i got mine to work was to make sure sleep was in the first box and hibernation was in the second box with a greater time.

    however i could NOT get it to work with:

    power button = standby
    2nd box = nothing
    3rd box = hibernation after idle 3hr


    this is the second time i posted this tonight but u must respect the classics before jumping on the windows 7 bus
    at first, i was exited to read this, and then realised that this meant that i would need to leave the computer 'on'(in a sense) for 2-3 hours...

    i don't know if i trust my setup to stay in that state for that long unattended...i feel like it is just asking for trouble-- even if it had been trouble free in the past...

    ok so heres some numbers i got throughout the day...

    first off my digi multimeter went for a swim in a puddle today so i had to find a replacement. i came up with an old analog multimeter and i dont really walk around with shunts in my pocket so i was stuck to 10amp unfused for most of the things i tried. reliable enough but not pin point accurate.

    this is condensed

    minimal set up = m2-atx, DG945GCLF2, Toshiba 80gb, usb touch screen, usb wireless keyboard

    s5 9mA (m2-atx hardoff = false)
    s4 13mA
    s3 120mA (usb=off; fans=off; wake from usb=false; hibernation countdown active)
    s2 1.5 Amps (usb=off; fans=off; wake from usb=false; hibernation countdown active)
    s1 1.7 Amps (usb=on; fans=on; wake from usb=true; hibernation countdown active)
    s0 2.2 Amps (idle)

    power was from a 12v 5amp ac/dc converter

    all power states were forced via dumppo.exe

    i used only what i needed to run windows because this is a good starting point for this board. ill do this again when i get another digital multimeter for better results.

    i did add a wd 1tb hdd and dvd drive, tried to max out all four cores with video a converter, and all the usb stuff i could round up at work but nothing significant due to the gauge being analog.

    but if u read this far u must want to know, each sata device drew about 250mA idle and 500mA while spinning up. the video converter i used maxed 2 cores and bounced around 70% for the other two and was just like the sata devices, drawing about 500mA more. i hijacked a few mice and keyboards and they did nothing but i cant find any high amperage usb devices... i cant even think of any...

    Thats kinda what I expected but great to see actual numbers-nice work.
