Hey

This might be related to my hibernation issue; Everytime I try to shutdown my OS, it shuts down but the hardware (fans, HDDs, lights, etc) stay on and running. They stay like this forever.

Why is this? This has never happened before and was working a couple of weeks back. I virus scanned and nothing.

What could be wrong?

I find it easier and faster to just search for things myself rather than ask and wait here.

Check your bios settings and make sure Standby/Sleep mode is S3 not S1

ACPI driver and Video driver might need to be updated or downgraded if they were recently updated.

What makes you think it did not search for it myself?

BTW, your solution has NOTHING to do with my question.

Yes, the mode S3 is enabled. I havent changed anything in my BIOS.

ACPI driver and Video driver might need to be updated or downgraded if they were recently updated.

Why would a video driver have anything to do with it?

Video drivers have everything to do with sleep/hibernation/shut down!!

Just like the computer I'm on now. Guy is to cheap to buy a decent video card, so computer has no sleep function and I disabled hibernate as that crap thing has ALWAYS caused issues in Winodows since the day it was invented.

It talks about mainly sleep and hibernation issues, when it does do it and suddenly wakes up. My computer NEVER reaches the point of hibernation and/or shutdown, its fans just keep running never once turning off.

NOTHING to do with my question. Completly differnet issue.

Well he was just trying to help, chances are he didnt read the WHOLE article. You are the one asking for help (3 times over) thats your job to read it. If it doesnt help then try something else. Don't fall out with people for suggesting google.

Here are results one and 2 from my very first google search (Computer shuts down but fans keep running)

Hello,
I have a problem . Even after i shutdown my pc fan still keeps running indefinately, i can still eject and close DVD drives, they aren't powered down!. But monitor is powered down.

When I shut down my sons computer, it almost shuts down all the way. Except the cpu and case fans run wide open. The MB lights are still on... The only way to complete the shut down is to turn the power strip off or turn the PSU off.


Now those sound related to your issue to me.

And just incase, here is the google search with many many more results of people with the same problem

Do a system restore to an earlier date.
Open the system restore wizard an choose a date that the system was working fine. Windows creates restore points every time an update is performed. This comes in handy for when something is not right with the system. This does not delete or remove custom files like docs or game saves.

You sure about that? I think it removed all files made after that point.

Very unless you are doing a factory restore not a windows restore point restore. I have done this multiple times for clients. Back your stuff up to be 100% if you have doubts. During the restore process it even says that it will not remove any data. Read the screens.
