Fans and power lights don’t turn off in standby

fanpower supplysleep

My desktop computer (Zotac 8200 motherboard) has a problem when I put it into standby mode. I use Windows 7 to put it into standby. The cpu fan, system fan, and PSU fan don't turn off. Nor does the power light in the front of the computer. I can't find any settings in the BIOS that all me to control this strange behavior. The computer can resume successfully from standby so it isn't froozen.
What can I do? Thanks

In your BIOS you should look for something like Standby/Sleep State or Power state, and make sure that it says S3 and not S1, which will leave the CPU on, which will require cooling.
