After reading the NZ PC World How to article in the latest December/January issue I decided to start doing my part to 'reduce my carbon footprint' by setting up sleep mode to be activated in Vista after 1/2 an hour of my PC not being used as outlined in this article.
Unfortunately although I may be saving power, when my PC goes to sleep my 8800 GTX emits a loud beep.
I also understand that when Vista enters sleep mode it powers things down including my gfx card.
I also gather that my 8800 is beeping because it is not getting enough power.
But, surely the clever chaps at Nvidia/Microsoft thought about this issue when designing their gfx cards/writing the sleep function into Vista?
Is there some fix or workaround available or am I bound to keep my carbon footprint as is in this regard and avoid using the sleep function?
I've searched on google and their a number of other people who have experienced the same problem. As far as I can tell no one has offered a solution as yet.
