Re: Num Lock stays on when hibernating!

Thank you for your quick reply! My problem is further compounded when it
goes into Sleep mode (Total silence from computer) as I cannot re-start
the computer without turning the power off at the wall. The on/off and
reset buttons have no effect. The hard drive light flashes but no signal
goes to my monitor. As the Vista and hard drive are both new, perhaps it
is a mechanical fault.
My Motherboard is Winfast K8S 755A series driving an AMD Athlon 64
3000+. The monitor is a samsung Syncmaster 913N.

Re: Num Lock stays on when hibernating!
I have been having the same kind of problem.
When the system goes to sleep, it will not wake up.
You have to manually turn off computer and then restart.
I am looking for solutions. I think it has to do with compatibility issues
between the video driver and windows vista.

Yeah, this is very common with the nVidia cards, I've had no trouble
with Intel or ATi graphics cards. I struggled with my Vista
certified, DX10 8800GTX for quite a while until nVidia got some good
beta drivers that allow for hibernation/sleep.
Unfortunately, they seem to break them in some rev's too, like the
158.18 they just released.
