qwaarjetDoes anyone have any suggestions?
qwaarjetWell, I was so fed up once I disabled sleep during the day but I noticed a couple of times where the that certain CPU core maxed out once again after several hours (maybe 6+?) I've worked from home that past 5 years so it's probably why it's very noticeable to me.
qwaarjetIn case anyone searches and has a similar problem, I swapped my motherboard for an Asus rampage vi extreme omega and wouldn't you know, no more ACPI.sys/cpu core maxed out issue after sleep. Exact same hardware, same windows install, didn't change a thing other than the motherboard. Problem with the motherboard/bios, I should have swapped long ago.
ZoranCSo for those that do experience same you did but don't want to / can't change mb they might try to see whether configuring system like I did (no fast boot, no sleep, no C-states, no hybernation) will work for them.

ty_ger07My PC idles at around 45 watts at the wall according to a kill-a-watt meter, and then sleeps at less than 4 watts. What does yours idle at?
ty_ger07Sleep and C-states make a big difference in needless power consumption. And when you recommend the same to others, it is compounding.
ironage... there is no need for useless power draw, which only transfers into heat.
ironagewe don't need inadequate workarounds, we need a better UEFI/Bios.
ironage... why you keep defending unnecessary faults in EVGA products ?!
ironagei will wait for a better bios for another two weeks and then i am done with it and sell the 2nd dark, if EVGA prefers snoozing.
