Hi all,

 

as I already stated elsewhere in this forum, I've just bought a Batman 2.0 (P771DM-G) few days ago. :frantics:

 

What I've discovered is the computer likes to auto-resume from standby if it.. "thinks it's worth to do so"..

I mean: it seems that if it requires more heat dissipation, it could wake up automously withing 20"-25".

 

It happens only after some gaming session, that's why I think it might be some forced policy coming from the Clevo Control Center or the BIOS itself.

Oh, and I troubleshooted with powercfg -lastwake and -waketimers without any more detail, and the Windows Event Viewer just says the PC got resumed by an "unknown reason".

 

Since I think here in this forum there is the best knowledge about BIOS and low-level policies of those computers, I'd like to get a confirmation about my theory.

 

Is it something that can be avoided with some Clevo CC setting? Or I need to let the computer dissipate some minutes before actually trying to suspend it for the next hours?

 

I haven't the BIOS/VBIOS revision numbers here, but the computer has been assembled just 10 days ago (and I don't see any firmware update in the reseller website: http://santech.eu R39 model).

The Clevo Control Center is the latest available in that website: v5.0000.0.22

 

Thanks for the support, guys!

 

EDIT: wrong Model. It's a P771DM-G.

Does anyone know something more than me about that matter? Does it really exist a heat cooling policy inside the Clevo's (or their Control Center) that could awake the computer?

Or there is something wrong with my installation?

 

In this moment it just can't suspend (for more than 20 seconds) even after a light browsing session. Weird.

Uhm.. I don't know, Prema. I installed by MCT (not really clean installed, but still overwriting the whole installation) the 10586 build over the 10240 which the Clevo came with.

Thus I doubt it is a software issue. At least with Windows as a culprit.

 

Still, it's pretty rare, at least. So I can survive with it, for the moment.

 

I don't know if that's related by I noticed recently that when it happens, I may feel the date of the PC is slightly different (like 1 day advanced), despite the time sync is always set in Windows.

Who knows if they are correlated things. I'll investigate further on this when it re-happens

 

For sure, should it become more harassing, I'd go the safest clean install route.

 

PS: by what I feel by seeing your answer, this is not a thing ever happened in your might experience with Clevos, though...

Update.

 

It seems pretty obvious that something while in the first 20" or so during Suspension is changing the date. It's very weird and annoying: I suspend at Feb 16 9:02 PM, 20" passes, PC wakes up, and it shows Feb 17, 9:02...

 

Event Viewer doesn't say anything noteworthy.

 

Of course I tried to disable Time sync on or off with no avail. The change is local. And not occurring everytime, just sometimes, it seems.

 

I might wait till Redstone for a clean Install, no really up to a total clean install as of now. I'm pretty sure the thing could be solved by picking something elsewhere, the problem is.. WHERE? O:)

      Title sums it up.
       
      TL;DR: we have a Clevo that runs a desktop CPU, one with those huge 82 Wh batteries. We remove the GPU and let it use the CPU's integrated graphics. How much time for the battery to go from 100 to 0? Is it comparable to an ultrabook's?
       
      I'm theorizing a mobile set with a static eGPU and an upgradable CPU. Given a hypothetical user that needs fast processing on the go and long battery life while retaining very high degrees of mobility, but at home wants a powerful machine to run most games, I guess that would be their best bet. It would surely be more convenient to keep everything in the same disk. And even though the thing would be quite heavy to carry around, changing CPU would be more cost-efficient than changing an entire laptop. (Not sure if I'm right here, and also I'm not sure whether the motherboard in a Clevo would be replaceable when the new CPU needs a different socket, which is another reason why I'm asking here.)
       
      If my above guesses aren't correct, then an ultrabook with Thunderbolt and without a dedicated GPU would be a better choice. If they are, then we would be carrying more weight in exchange of a more cost-efficient setup, which I think would be a fair tradeoff.
       
      Also I am aware of the heating problems that these laptops suffer from, at least compared to a desktop setup. Would they be solved by moving the GPU out of the chassis, and instead plugging it with an eGPU dock via Thunderbolt port?
       
      What do you think? Is it doable? If not, why?

      A part of my BIOS got corrupted that controls my laptops backlights. Other methods like the Gary Key fix did not work for me because I do not get any light up during post. i followed this guide  that says I need to extract and use the 6MB portion of an 8MB bios dump, only AFUWIN tells me "Error, ROM file size does not match existing BIOS size which is because my laptop BIOS size is only 5.87MB.  I don't need to flash the whole BIOS, I only need to flash a portion of it. 
       
      I've searched everywhere online for a dump of my laptop model but non exist that I know of.

      I fiddled around with modding my laptops BIOS to unlock XMP profiles and hopefully seeing if optimus could be disabled. After flashing my modded bios and trying it out, I noticed that my keyboards backlight no longer turns on. I was unaware it requires an official BIOS to function. They backlights wont turn on unless ASUS ATK package is installed but now it seems it also needs an official BIOS?
       
      The modded ROM and tool I used if anyone has any experience with this and doesn't mind telling me what to enable/disable, or anything else i can do to re-enable them

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?
       
      Below are screenshots starting with GPUz
