Computer will not sleep after installing a new mobo. It starts initiating sleep mode and the fans and such shut off and the screen goes blank but after a second the fans and everything come back on but the screen stays blank and the only way to get it out of this state is to hold the power button until it shuts off. I checked the BIOS and did not see anything related to sleep mode. Where would a setting for this be located?

Did you install the correct video drivers for the new motherboard?

Motherboard manufacturer...or video card manufacturer...(whichever is appropriate)...the respective website will have drivers applicable to the device and O/S.

If you installed a new motherboard, there should have been a drivers CD which contained all possible drivers. Those are usually automatic installs, once inserted in the optical drive tray.

Make sure ACPI is enabled.
