power mgmt settings - problems resuming from sleep

I am running a P5k Deluxe with Q6600. I'm not sure if this is a software or hardware problem, but I'm having trouble with sleep in Vista. If I set my BIOS power setting to Auto or S3, my machine will not resume from sleep properly. I can work if set to S1.

This is a custom-build with all new components, so I'm scratching my head over waht device might be having trouble with S3, or is the mobo?

Any advice?

  1. its nomal

    its vistam do you have usb devices? change/check key board and mouse

    load service pack 1 that may help

    it can be software problem too, change sleep settings usually do not help only not useing them
  2. I have eliminated the USB devices by unplugging them. I have eliminated all other devices in device manager, and turned off all non-microsoft services.

    The only options are motherboard, BIOS settings, or video card. I'm at a loss to determine where to go from here.
