A comprehensive data set covering the superoutburst and 8 outbursts of the 45-day supercycle of the dwarf nova V1159 Ori was obtained in February-March 1996. The use of RXTE, ROSAT, IUE, and EUVE satellites, combined with ground- based optical photometry and spectroscopy, provided a broad picture of the accretion disk at different states. Results include an inverse correlation of the X-ray with the UV/optical fluxes, an outflowing wind during all outbursts, and large changes in the disk spectrum on time scales of less than a day. These results are compared to other dwarf novae and general theories of dwarf nova outbursts.
