Windows standby versus MOBO standby...

#1
i have an ASUS P4S533...
i'm using Windows XP Pro...

The BIOS has settings for standby and powering down hard drives...

As you know so does Windows...


So my question is: Which takes precedence? should i set both the bios settings and windows settings equal? or just use windows settings? or just use bios settings? I'm also having stupid performance problems after coming out of standby... could this be related to the bios settings conflicting with windows, or related to RAM????

Neither. System Standby and / or Hibernation use resources unnecessarily, are hard on the system, and may result in instability.

It is preferable to just set your hd & display to power down after a predefined period of inactivity.
