I normally recommend the default settings for your system type. From there you can change them as necessary to fit your own personal requirements. Scott.

I recently installed Windows 7 Professional for the desktop PC I usually use. Unfortunately, the system apparently won't automatically sleep or hibernate even when it's not connected to any network. (I can make it sleep or hibernate manually, however.) Windows XP Professional was the previous OS for the system, and it tended to automatically hibernate. Could I have an OS problem on my hands? Keep in mind that have enabled the S3 state in CMOS, plus the system does automatically turn the monitor and hard drive off.

A failure to automatically sleep or hibernate can be caused by 3rd party software or devices that keep the system active. It can also be caused by improper power settings and missing or incorrect device drivers. Check to be sure that your power management options are set correctly. Scott.
