Ok so my motherboard does not have a built in modem, so I bought a Creative Blaster V.92 USB Modem (was on sale for $10) so I can use Vista Caller-ID to display caller ID information on my Vista Media Center PC.

Well, everything works as planned, BUT, when I put the computer to sleep and I get a phone call at home, it wakes up the PC :/

I've made sure that under power options, there is NO check next to "Allow this device to bring the computer out of Standby", I've also disabled "Wake On Ring" in the BIOS.


Anything I'm overlooking!?


Thanks

Is it compatible with Vista, I saw up to XP. Does it have a vista driver?

go into device manager and go through each of your usb hubs and set the following settings


Under the power management tab check the top box.


"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power."

and what should be the winner for you is the next one (leave this one unchecked)

"Allow this device to wake the computer."
