I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 Ultimate. While I was using XP often, when I was not using the PC, I put it in sleep mode. When I do that the fans stop and everything is nice and quiet. Now here's the issiues with Win7:


When I put it to sleep, everything is fine, except the fan on my video card- it keeps working. I don't want that because it's kinda loud. 

The other thing- I can't "wake up" windows. How do I do it? I try the startup button, some keyboard keys. Nothing works. Only restart button works.


Any ideas how to turn off all fans in sleep mode and actualy make it wake up?
