    i have almost sorted my pc to go in and out of s3 sleep ok, except there are 2 issues i'd like resolving.

    when it awakes from sleep for an automated record, it obviously starts fans (which are very quiet) but also spins up the DVD drive, is this because i have a DVD in it? or is it normal for this to happen from S3 sleep.

    also sometimes when i wake it from sleep the rtemote doesnt work, or the display doesnt come one (TV on HDMI setting)

    any help appreciated

    Regards

    the dvd drive starts spining because its got a disk in. take the disk out then s3wake up will not start the dvd drive spinning. what os are you using??? ive never had problems with s3 in vista on my machine. my remote starts up everytime without fail as its already loaded at startup, i put it into sleep and everything turns off, wake it up and all the programs that where loaded before are still there including and open programs like IE.
    you might need to check usb s3 settings in the bios
