    I'm having a lot of trouble getting my computer to resume from standby (S3) to start a scheduled recording. Every settings seem to be correct, BIOS, "Allow wake timers" enabled, no problems suspending/resuming with the remote and so on. But when ever I schedule a recording, using Windows Media Center, and put the computer to sleep . . . nothing happens. It doesn't wake up.

    Please help, I'm going crazy here - this is the only thing missing to make my pc a perfect media center.


    Intel DG45ID
    Intel QuadCore Q8300
    2 GB RAM
    1 TB HDD
    Sony Optiarc Blu-ray drive
    Windows 7 Home Premium

    I am having this problem too. I just built a new PC last month, and Media Center has only resumed a couple times to record a show. But most of the time it will not resume to start a scheduled recording.

    Any help is appreciated. I am not going to create a new thread, I am just going to bump this one.

    These are the specs of my computer that may be related to the sleep issue:

    ● ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO/U3S6 AM3 Motherboard
    ● AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition 3.2GHz AM3 "MBOX" CPU
    ● G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 RAM
    ● ASUS ENGTS250 DK/DI/1GD3/WW GeForce GTS 250 1GB Video Card
    ● Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    Thanks for any help!
