    NUC and support for S0 Low Power Idle

    chrol

      I have nuc6i7kyk and I am somewhat annoyed by fan noise.

       

      Intel/Microsoft together seem to have developed "Connected Standby" or "Modern Standby" for when e.g. laptops are connected to power which allows them to have active idle network connections in a low power sleep mode. This also works with Hyper-V allowing your machine to sleep even when VM's are active.

       

      To me the NUC is an always connected powerful laptop

       

      This concept seems stellar and would allow my home server to sleep but still listen for incoming emails or media requests or remote desktop connections and instantly wake up when needed.

       

      But the NUC seems to not support it:

      powercfg.exe /a reports

      "S0 Low Power Idle"

      Not supported by firmware (or similar)

       

      Are there any plans for adding this in a firmware update?

       

      Thanks!

          Hello chrol,


          Thank you for joining the Intel(R) Communities, I understand you want to check the sleep states supported for your system to use in your home server configuration. We can certainly check on this matter to provide the required information.


          In this case, I would like to gather up some data to have a better understanding of the scenario faced and then proceed accordingly with the answer to your question.


          Please attach the following to your answer:

          • Intel® System Support Utility report
          • Screenshot of the powercfg.exe /a report showing the message

           

           

          How to get the Intel(R) SSU report?

           


          Thanks,
          Esteban C
