Re: GA-EP45-DS3R unstable after sending to S3(STR) sleep state
Since they are apparently incapable of providing a reasonable response, I have composed one for them. Gigabyte, feel free to cut and paste this post into future responses to your customers:
"Dear Valued Customer, We regret to inform you that we are indeed having some problems with P43/45 chipsets properly returning from S3 standby. This is an issue that was previously addressed for the P35 chipset, and we are now working on a fix for the P43/45 boards. Though we cannot promise an exact date for a fix, we are doing everything we can to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. We regret the inconvenience, but in the meantime, we suggest that you either use a different memory configuration, or refrain from using S3 standby (using S1 or S4 as alternatives). Again, our apologies for the inconvenience this has caused. We value all our customers and hope you will continue to support us as we resolve this issue.
