RE: filmscanners: Matrox and Monitor standby



It seems that some motherboards have energy saving features in their BIOS
which sometimes fight with those of their operating system; the fight can
turn into an all out war when certain devices are used.  You might try to
disable alternately the energy saving features of the motherboard using only
those of the OS and, if that does not work, than disable those of the OS
using only those of the motherboard's BIOS.  I would also suggest checking
the Matrox web site to see if this is a problem with your BIOS or OS or
contacting them.

I had a similar problem on my computer.  I had to disable the power saving
features.  I think the problem was caused by PNP insisting on putting the
SCSI
card and video card on the same IRQ.  It would caue hangs when power saving
occurred while writing a CDR on the SCSI CDR drive.
