New build shuts down instead of sleep

My new system wont sleep -- it force-shuts down instead. This happens either when the computer falls asleep naturally, or when I push the sleep button. Upon restart I get "comp wasnt shut down correctly."

This is a brand new home build -- Is it possible I plugged something into my mobo wrong?

-Intel i5 2500K (stock cooler @ stock speed)
-ASUS P8P67 Deluxe Mobo (using the ASUS Q connector)
-HIS 5770 1gb DDR5
-8gb(2x4gb) G.Skill Ripjaw 1600
-Seasonic X650 Gold power supply
-Antec Three-Hundred Illusion Case
-Windows 7 64bit
-4 SATA HD
-ASUS dvd-R

Thanks.

    Read the manual. I found a BIOS option for my Gigabyte motherboard, under Power Management Setup, that must be set for 32-bit or 64-bit OS's. It defaults to 32-bit, and is used for the sleep function.
  2. Interesting, I've never seen that happen before. It's possible AMD doesn't make that distinction or something.
  3. Thanks. Will investigate and report back.
  4. Dang. Yesterday evening my PC got a BSOD upon waking up with BCcode 9C and MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION. Since I have only had 2 problems waking up in 3 months of use, I have no clue what it could be.
