I have the same motherboard (Asus P5W DH Deluxe), and always had problems
with Sleep in Vista, before I moved Vista onto my HTPC instead. As I took
Vista off it over a year ago, I do not know of the situation has changed.
There have been many BIOS updates for this enthusiast board, as it is pretty
old, from the Pentium-D days, and which can still use the latest top of the
range quad Core 2 at full FSB speed. Just shows how advanced and flexible
it was and still is.
