Fan(s) keep on running while in stand by mode

By Gannadi ·
I got similar problems. My fans keep on running in stand by mode.

I use as follows

Intel Desktop Board D102GGC2
Chipset Ati Radeon Express 200

Previously I had no problem. But since re-installing new XP2, I have this problem.

Clue please?

Both of which are generating heat.

I'm not surprised that your cooling fans are still running.

You will need to check the Bios Power settings and make sure that ACPI is enabled also S3 Suspend to RAM (Sleep)

Check power management and make sure that "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is not selected if you are using a USB mouse.
