Hey just in case someone else out there is having the same problem, I figured out today that these two programs will cause my computer to wake up right after I tell it to sleep. I closed the programs, changed the settings so that these programs do not open on startup, and my computer stays fast asleep now.
Creative Titanium X-Fi Volume Panel and Creative AutoMode Switcher
I don't have that problem.
That said, part of it is because I don't use the AutoMode Switcher at all, just the Volume Panel, and that's just because it's a convenient way to switch CMSS-3D Headphone on or off as needed.
Having the AutoMode Switcher became kind of pointless when I realized that I spent the majority of my time in Game Mode anyway. Even switching to Audio Creation Mode for ASIO support while playing music just wasn't really worth it to me.
Yeah, I had been switching Windows back to stereo every time I would listen to music, but really couldn't tell any difference. Switching will be much easier now! (Just disabling CCSM-3D). Thanks for your information, VERY helpful! =D
