OMEN by HP 45L Gaming Desktop PC IDS Base Models (ArticunoI)

Hello!

 

When my PC is in sleep mode, I can hear the power supply turning on and off every few minutes - I end up shutting PC off a few times each day.   I would rather let is sleep and shut down  less often.   Any thoughts?

 

TIA

that's another topic, but no idea
it would be necessary to have answer of the user of the same type of computer
This seems illogical to me, but see in the control parameters of the Omen software, maybe

what exactly do you hear?
because even if the computer is off, the power supply is not completely cut off..
In standby it should not turn off at all
You should see at the back, a light, does it go out, flash at this time?
Maybe it's just the ventilation you're hearing?

always this one ?

I am not sure- how do I tell which?

HP Recommended

Hello-  After observing the PC in sleep mode - the sound is actually coming from my battery back up.

 

The sound is triggered with the video card (GEFORCE RTX) going off and on.  The lighted text on the card goes off, in a few seconds, the back up battery clicks, then the light comes back on, repeats..

What do you call "battery backup"?
is it an inverter-type system to protect the computer in the event of a breakdown?
there it may be necessary to see with the manufacturer of the device

Yes battery back up - several years old - I am ordering a new one.

 

Is it normal for the video card to cycle power (the letters on the side of light up and down) while sleeping?
