I just built an HTPC.  All is working well except wake from sleep.  When I put my HTPC in sleep mode I am unable to recover.  I have bios setup to wake on keyboard or mouse movement.  When I try to wake the power LED lights up, cpu fan spins and hard disk spins up.  However, there is no video - the monitor stays in sleep mode.

Also, I have an IR remote control that has mouse functionality.  When the computer is on and press remote keys or the remote control's mouse functionality the IR receiver flashes until I stop pressing a given key.  That works fine.  However, when in sleep mode and I press the mouse functionality the computer power LED comes on, cpu fan spins up.  The IR receiver stays lit constantly, no flashing.  When I stop pressing the mouse the IR receiver continues to stay lit.  If I unplug it and re-insert it the IR light won't come back on, even if it's built in mouse.  And, the monitor does not wake.
The only way to resume windows is to reset power. And then I get a message saying Windows did not shut down correctly. 
Anyone seen this before or have recomendations on steps I can follow to resolve?

Here's my build -

  • Windows 7 Professional, SP1
  • AMD A10 5700 processor/graphics
  • Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H motherboard
  • Corsair Vengeance 8 gb DDR3 1866
  • Crucial 64 Gig m4 SSD
  • 400 Watt Silence MK III psu
  • Western Digital Caviar green 3 TB SATA III 64  hard disk
  • HD Homerun Prime (on my home network, HTPC recognizes it fine)

The issue was with the Gigabyte GA-F2A75M-D3H.  After lots and lots of fiddling, testing and replacing I installed a new ASUS F2A85-M PRO and my HTPC now runs like a champ.  I'll be returning the Gigabyte board.
