    Arrow P35-DS3R v2.1 F11, Vista x64 sleep problem (keeps rebooting)

    Have got this problem, I've read a lot around here on it, it works fine in S1 (but S1 is crap compared to S3)

    Are there any things that I can try? Is it a known problem with all boards? or a bad batch that can be RMA'd? Or are gigabyte working on fixing it via bios update?

    I have searched, but I couldn't see any official response from Gigabyte. If I remove the psu cable for 5 secs then put it back in, it works fine and boots up like normal, so my only issue is S3. The system is perfect besides this, totally stable in Crysis etc

    Besides this problem, it's an awesome board, I'm really happy with it

    Spec is at the moment..
    Q6600 @ 3.0ghz
    8gb ocz 6400@6400(800)
    corsair hx520w psu
    8800gt ko
    2xraptors in raid 0

    all voltages set to 'auto'


    Thanks in advance,

    Yeah, you should set your ram voltage to spec. I suggest Nothing on auto, but that is me. Yes, ALL Gigabyte boards that I am aware of sleep/resume does not work proper. DO NOT keep trying to use it. Or RMA will be your only option soon. Yes, I believe they are working on it, but have been for a while with no luck

    If you have any overclocking questions after reading the guide I pinned feel free to post about them

    Change it to Disabled is the best way to remember not to use it!! Better safe then sorry

    Then if you are using vista >>>>>

    Windows places a file on your hard drive that it uses when your computer goes into hibernation mode. If you do not use hibernation mode, you may want to disable hibernation and clear the file off your hard drive to free up some space (the file will use as much space as you have in physical memory, so if you have 1GB of RAM, it's going to use 1GB of your hard drive space).

    There are two ways of disabling it:

    To disable Hibernation using Disk Cleanup:

    1. Click Start/ All Programs/ Accessories/ System Tools/ Disk Cleanup
    2. If prompted to choose a drive, select the drive in which Windows Vista is installed onto and press OK.
    3. Disk Cleanup will scan the hard drive and present you with a list of options.
    4. Check "Hibernation File Cleaner", and then click OK.
    5. When asked "Are you sure you want to permanently delete these files?" click on the Delete Files button.

    To disable hibernation using the Command Prompt:

    1. Click Start, All Programs, and then right click on "Command Prompt".
    2. From the context menu click on "Run as administrator".
    3. If User Account Control prompts you to allow the action, click on Continue.
    4. In the command prompt window, type "powercfg -H OFF" (without the quotes).
    4. Close the Command Prompt window.

    sweet, i upped the voltage on my ram by 0.4, and a few other's by 0.1, and turned off (think it's called HPET)

    S3 works perfectly now :)

    Yes, as I suggested in another thread, S3 works fine on most Gigabyte boards with the right voltages and the right bios.
