Lost In Cyberia Posted November 23, 2015 Share Posted November 23, 2015 Hey everyone, I know this isn't a PC support forum..but who knows maybe one of you guys have run into a similar issue.. I built my PC and and supplied it with a 600w Powersupply. I have a mid range MSI graphics card attached, and a bunch of USB devices plugged in (keyboard, mouse, dvd burner), and two SATA hard drives plugged in. The motherboard I have is MSI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127782http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130692 So the problem is that whenever I put my computer into sleep mode, and then go to restart it from sleep, it does this really weird "triple" wakeup up attempt. What I mean is I heard the fans, and hard drive rev up for a second. then it shuts back down. Then there's a 2 second pause of nothing. Then it attempts to power on again, fans spin, then shuts down....Finally ALWAYS on the third attempt, the computer boots fine, fans comes on, hard drives spin up, and all is merry. This isn't really a horrible issue, but it's just odd...and a bit concerning... Considering I hear the hard drives spin up, then shut down abrubtly, I just hope no long term damage to the drive is being done....I sleep my computer quiet often... And that's the other thing, when I shut it down completely, and cold boot, it boots fine! Never had an issue.. Any thoughts on this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
