The main CMOS power-management settings for my current PC are as follows:

ACPI Function: [Enabled]

ACPI Standby State: [S1]

Restore On AC Power Loss: [Off]

What settings would be the most ideal so Windows XP hibernation will work well? My system's motherboard is an MSI 760GM-P33.

I've changed the ACPI Standby State Setting to [S3]. However, I don't want my PC to come out of Standby mode accidentally. The following is my current Wake Up Event Setup:

Wake Up Event By: [BIOS]

Resume From S3 By USB Device: [Enabled]

Resume From S3 By PS/2 Keyboard: [Any Key]

Resume From S3 By PS/2 Mouse: [Enabled]

Resume By PCI Device (PME#): [Enabled]

Resume By PCI-E Device: [Enabled]

Resume By RTC Alarm: [Disabled]

I am currently using a Logitech diNovo Media Desktop Laser combo with the PC in question. The keyboard, mouse, and MediaPad all rely on a Bluetooth connection. Scott, what Wake Up Event Setup settings would you recommend for me?

Most of the time Bluetooth host adapters are connected to the PC via USB, so if you want them to be able to wake the system you should enable resume by USB devices. Scott.

But what about PCI and PCI-E devices? Should I set the "Resume By" settings for them to [Disabled]?

Sure, unless you have anything connected via one of those interfaces you want to be able to wake the system. Scott.

Should I change the "Wake up Event By" setting to [OS]?

I wouldn't, but if you do let me know what you think about it. Scott.
