  1. Hi, a little while ago i was messing around with software that would boot my computer from cold automatically. Anyway, i found out how to do that.....

    .....but now for some reason, when my computer enters stand-by, my fan is still spinning, how do i stop this?

    Also, i have a new ATI Raedeon Power color 9800 pro (128mb). The fan spins on that too. can i also stop that?

    Enter the BIOS and see if it supports the S3 ACPI standby state.

    Maybe the software you mentioned is overriding or interferring with the standby mode set in the BIOS.
