Exclamation Standby Issue, fans still spinning

My computers BIOS doesnt seem to have an option to change S1,S2,S3 and S4 standby settings, because when i set my system to standby the fans and cpu are still running, i want it to suspend to ram so it will completely shut off when on standby, but theres no optoin when there is supposed to be. Is there an alternative solution?

Honestly, your system is in a TRUE standby when you turn it "off". The only way to get the fans to all shut off is an option found in most BIOS...

I set mine to sleep and fans are still on, hehe Is that good? On Hibernate everything is off like as if it was off but it booted up really fast.

sounds to me like the pc isn't actually going to standby. in my experience 9 times out of 10 it's because of some device that doesn't want to be turned off. the usual culprits are usb devices, especially mouses and keyboards. use the windows device manager to disable the option for these devices that allows them to bring the computer out of standby.
