comment Is there any way to Hibernate a computer into mechanical off (G3)?
Well, in this case it seems that I'm not using Hybrid Sleep. The feature was turned on, but it is only triggered when I go to sleep, not hibernate. My computer actually does turn off (sort of) and when I tap the keyboard, it comes back to life but goes through the full boot process. It's as if it's hibernating, but not cutting full power to the PC, which will then sometimes allow it to randomly wake up on its own.

What is the expected behavior when you come out of hybrid sleep? When I hibernate, I turn on the computer and it goes through the full boot process.

comment Audio performance issues after resuming from sleep/hibernate in Windows 10 build 10162
As odd as this sounds, it may have been my raid driver... Found this thread (sevenforums.com/sound-audio/…) that suggested that this is what it might have been. I'll have to do further testing to make sure

I don't know exactly which chipset, but it's Realtek in any event. I don't see how that makes any sense though. I uninstalled the driver completely and used my USB headphones and still get the issue.

comment Can I setup two RAID arrays on a single intel z97 controller?
I never ended up trying... I bought a separate 2 port sata raid controller card that supports raid 0

comment How id it technically possible for Windows to wake up a hibernated computer?
My question is, though, how does Windows trigger the event? Task Scheduler may have an entry in it to wake the computer at a specific time, but how does it know to wake the computer at that time if windows isn't running at that point in time?

Done in Disk Management, "create spanned volume"

@MattSteelblade TRIM is supported on intel RAID now, has been for a while.

comment Video performance under a virtualized OS
@techie007 That question was asked 3 years ago. There's a strong possibility that this is more possible now due to advances in virtualization tech.

comment Why is my monitor turning off after inactivity when power settings tell it not to?
It's not sleeping for certain. I have music playing in the background and when I touch the mouse or keyboard the screen comes back on.

comment How do I stop the message “Bluetooth device not discoverable” from appearing every time I turn on my computer?
I've actually tried that; The message still comes up anyhow, as apparently it starts some new instance of the tray application and defaults to "always show"

comment How can I get excel to recognize “Sat 07.27.2013 9:46 AM” as a date on input?
That's not the issue - If you enter 7.30.2013, it does not get recognized as a date. I realize that 7/30/2013 does. Otherwise, I already have everything set up as you did.

I should have mentioned that I do use Bluetooth for my mouse... but I will try the first suggestion.

comment Is there any way I can fix a word header to a specific height?
@allquixotic I usually have the outline of invisible tables shown, so that's not much of an issue for me at least. But the idea is good.

Nah - this is a home computer. Not on a domain.

Nope - no problems found with SFC

comment Windows 8 right-click menu where start button used to be isn't working
SFC is scanning now - but I checked those shortcuts, and they do work properly on their own. I also noticed that sometimes clicking on one of the options that does nothing actually restores a minimized window, but there seems to be no discernible pattern for me to figure out why.

comment How can I stop firefox (and possibly other browsers?) from stealing tab focus
@amit_g "Raise Windows" was not checked... but as for the Flash question, I don't know. Adblock Lite doesn't show any swf blockable items

comment Cannot access network share - “The user has not been granted the requested logon type”
It's not the share - I can't even access the root of the windows shares. Also, Network$ is the username not the share name. I shared out My Videos and made sure that NTFS permissions on the share and the folder allow full access to that user, but again - it's not asking me to input a username to authenticate.

comment Cannot access network share - “The user has not been granted the requested logon type”
But as I said, it's not even asking me to supply a username. It's supposedly trying to use the username that I'm currently logged into on the remote system, but that user doesn't exist (nor do I want it to) on the server. I had setup a special account "Network$" to be used for network access to specific shares. I want to use that user, but it's not prompting me to use it.
