Question

Since I got my new computer setup (Quad and new mobo), when I put my computer to sleep, the fan stays running full bore.

Is this caused by the mobo setup? Or is there something I could change to fix this?

When the computer is in sleep mode - it is still on and the fan will run when needed to keep temperatures cool. Does it ever turn off after awhile?

I have seen some BIOS' that have a setting to adjust the fan speed when the PC is in sleep mode, have you been in the BIOS at all?
