3-5.Power Management Setup

ACPI Suspend Type:

This item selects the type of Suspend mode.

[S1(PowerOn-Suspend)]:Enables the Power On Suspend function.

[S3(Suspend-To-RAM)]:Enables the Suspend to RAM function.

Resume by USB From S3:

When set to [Enabled], this item allows you to use a USB device to wake up a system that is in the S3 (STR - Suspend To RAM) state. This item can be configured only if the item “ACPI Suspend Type” is set to [S3(STR)].

Power Button Function:

This item selects the method of powering off your system:

[Delay 4 Sec.]: Pushing the power button for more than 4 seconds will power off the system. This will prevent the system from powering off in case you accidentally hit or pushed the power button.

[Instant-Off]:Pressing and then releasing the power button at once will immediately power off the system.

CPU THRM-Throttling

This item controls the CPU speed by cutting down its regular power to a percentage during the STR (Suspend To RAM) state.

WakeUp by PME# of PCI:

When set to [Enabled], access to the onboard LAN or a PCI card such as a modem or LAN card will cause the system to wake up. The PCI card must support the wake up function.

WakeUp by Ring:

When set to [Enabled], telephone calls coming through an external or internal modem will power-onyour system.

WakeUp by Onboard Lan:

When set to [Enabled], you can remotely wake up a PC in Soft-Offcondition via a LAN card that support the wake up function.

WakeUp by Alarm:

When set to [Enabled], you can set the date and time you would like the Soft-OffPC topower-onin the “Date (of Month) Alarm” and “Time (hh:mm:ss) Alarm” items. However, if the system is being accessed by incoming calls or the network (Resume On Ring/LAN) prior to the date and time set in these items, the system will give priority to the incoming calls or network instead.

Date (of Month) Alarm

[0]: This option power-onthe system everyday according to the time set in the “Time (hh:mm:ss) Alarm” item.

[1-31]:This option selects a date you would like the system topower-on.The system willpower-onon the date set, and the time set in the “Time (hh:mm:ss) Alarm” item.

Time (hh:mm:ss) Alarm

This item sets the time you would like the system to power-on.

POWER ON Function:

This item selects the way you want your system to power on.

[Password]: Use a password to power on the system, select this option then press <Enter>. Enter your password. You can enter up to 5 characters. Type in exactly the same password to confirm, and then press <Enter>.

[Hot KEY]: Use any of the function keys between <F1> to <F12> to power on the system.

[Mouse Left]: Double click the mouse left button to power on the system.

[Mouse Right]: Double click the mouse right button to power on the system.

[Any KEY]: Use any keyboard keys to power on the system.

[Button Only]: Use only the power button to power on the system.

[Keyboard 98]: Use the power-onbutton on the “Keyboard 98” compatible keyboard to power on the system.

NOTE: The mouse wake up function can only be used with the PS/2 mouse, not with the COM port or USB type. Some PS/2 mice cannot wake up the system because of compatible problems. If the specs of your keyboard are too old, it may fail to power on.

KB Power ON Password:

This item sets the password required in order to power on your computer.

NOTE: Do not forget your password, or you will have to clear the CMOS and reset all parameters in order to utilize this function again.

Hot Key Power ON:

This item powers on the system by pressing <Ctrl> key plus one of each function key (<F1> ~ <F12>) simultaneously.

Restore On AC After Power Loss:

This item selects the system action after an AC power failure.

[Power Off]: When power returns after an AC power failure, the system’s power remains off. You must press the Power button to power-onthe system.

[Power On]: When power returns after an AC power failure, the system’s power will be powered on automatically.

[Last State]: When power returns after an AC power failure, the system will return to the state where you left off before power failure occurs. If the system’s power is off when AC power failure occurs, it will remain off when power returns. If the system’s power is on when AC power failure occurs, the system will power-onwhen power returns.

[Auto(ESCD)]: The system will automatically detect the settings.

[Manual]: Choose the specific IRQ resources in the “IRQ Resources” menu.

IRQ Resources:

Click <Enter> key to enter its submenu:

This item sets each system interrupt to either [PCI Device] or [Reserved].

PCI/VGA Palette Snoop:

This item determines whether the MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards can work with PCI/VGA or not.

[Enabled]: MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards work with PCI/VGA.

[Disabled]: MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards do not work with PCI/VGA.

PCI Latency Timer(CLK):

This item controls how long each PCI device can hold the bus before another takes over. When set to higher values, every PCI device can conduct transactions for a longer time and thus improve the effective PCI bandwidth. For better PCI performance, you should set the item to higher values.

PIRQ_0 Use IRQ No. ~ PIRQ_7 Use IRQ No.:

This item specifies the IRQ number manually or automatically for the devices installed on PCI slots.

For the relations between the hardware layout of PIRQ (the signals from the ICH chipset), INT# (means PCI slot IRQ signals) and devices, please refer to the table below:

3-7.PC Health Status

FAN Fail Alarm Selectable:

This item selects the fan that will be monitored for malfunction.

Shutdown When CPUFAN Fail:

When set to [Enabled], the system will be shut down if the CPU fan is not running.

CPU Shutdown Temperature:

This item sets the temperature that would shutdown the system automatically in order to prevent system overheats.

CPU Warning Temperature:

This item selects the CPU’s warning temperature limit. Once the system has detected that the CPU’s temperature exceeded the limit, warning beeps will sound.

NOTE: The onboard hardware monitor function is capable of detecting these system health conditions. If you want a warning message to pop-upor a warning alarm to sound when an abnormal condition occurs, you must install the “Hardware Doctor” utility. This utility is included in the “Driver & Utility CD” that came packed with this motherboard.

All Voltages, Fans Speed and Thermal Monitoring:

These unchangeable items list the current status of the CPU and environment temperatures, fan speeds, and system power voltage.

NOTE: The hardware monitoring features for temperatures, fans and voltages will occupy the I/O address from 294H to 297H. If you have a network adapter, sound card or other add-oncards that might use those I/O addresses, please adjust youradd-oncard I/O address to avoid using these addresses.
