Just out of curiousity... if you set all the input devices NOT to wake up
the computer... how do you wake it up ?
And there is a fix for this problem by the way...
Purchase a pci network adapter for about $15-$25... d-link, netgear, etc.
will do... disable the on-board NIC in the bios... install the new NIC and
bingo... Vista sleeps like a baby !
So much for nvidia chipsets... this MOBO... and WHQL drivers... well... so
much for vista too for that matter... and technical support...
fogettaboutit... my next system is going to be either Linux or a MAC... I'm
weary of windows...
thanks for the help and the comments...
