    Matrox G200 Prevents Standby

    Power management is unable to shut down my monitor or put the system into standby, stating that my Matrox MGA G200 AGP graphics (onboard on my HP Vectra) is preventing it. I have reinstalled the driver: no change. I have downloaded a new Win2k driver from Matrox: power management stopped even trying and screen reduced to VGA standard, so reinstalled Win2k driver.. No help from HP.

    I also have a Creative Dxr-3 PCI DVD card with a beta driver from Creative. Although this is not cited as the cause of the problem, could it be? Strangely, I am also using a default monitor setting, with no option of adding a monitor (monitors don't appear on the list of devices that can be added).

    I quite like Win2k so far, but can't walk away from it; so I am currently largly sticking with Me (dual boot), where everything is working fine (hardware, at least <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>). Anyone have any ideas? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    My opinion, - yes, it could be the Creative driver. I know for a fact that their Live! series soundcard drivers don't support sleep or hibernation. I lose one audio channel when coming out of sleep mode.

    Does Matrox's site mention anything about supporting sleep mode?

    Finally got around to removing Creative DVD card, but the problem persists. Driver for Matrox loaded on installation no problems and updates don't help, so what gives?

    I notice that under Computer, I have Advanced Configuration and Power Interface PC listed. What does this mean? Also, I cannot change from default monitor.
