    Have you added MCH voltage? Tried other ram? It is a BIOS related error as you see on page 1 I posted image of the recently released fix for P35

    I had the same problem with my motherboard, however mine had an AMD chipset (GA-MA770DS3). At first, my computer would not resume from S3. After screwing around with it for about a week, I finally got it to resume about a third of the time. Same problem, however - the machine would suddenly crash at some point after resuming. One day I tried changing the "Cool-n-Quiet" bios setting back to enabled and presto - no more crashing. Your board (intel based) may have it listed under another name, but it probably does the same thing. I also used a shareware program called MCE Standby Tool, and that helped with all the registry settings and options for sleep. HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE........

    I think that would be C1E but it needs to be disabled to overclock in Intel Boards for sure. TM2 can be enabled though and has been said by a few to help as well

    Just found this thread, but noticed you guys had already seen my thread on another forum: Vista x64 BSODs on Resume from S3 Standby - Vista Forums
    I'm still having the same problem as has been detailed here. I certainly hope this is something that will be resolved via a BIOS update. I have used the Gigabyte Tech Support web page, but they were not helpful. Does anyone have a good email address for Gigabyte so they know that many of us are experiencing this problem?
    As for S1, forget it...you might as well leave your system on. S4/Hibernate is fine, but definitely takes longer to resume than S3. S4 is what I'm using now, or just shut down. It would be nice to simply come back from S3 quickly.
    I just dual-booted my system (Vista x64 and OpenSUSE 11.0). Interesting to note that the S3 and S4 equivalents are working fine under Linux, though it took some work to make S3 function correctly via the desktop (vs. a terminal window command).
    Anyway, this resume from S3 problem seems to be an overlap of 1) this family of motherboards, 2) Vista64, and 3) 4GB of memory. Is that correct?

    I have a GA-EP45C-DS3R motherboard with the same problem. I can suspend and resume from disk (Hibernation) but when I resume from S3 I get BSOD. Or sometimes it happens after 1 to 2 minutes. I have updated to the latest BIOS firmware F3 but still have the same problem.

    It sounds like a common problem accross the P45 motherboards. Have any of you managed to resolve this?

    One more thing that may or may not help - on my gigabyte motherboard (ga-ma770ds3 - amd chipset) I remember receiving a "memory management" error after resuming from S3. So I continued to tinker with the advanced bios settings for memory. The bios settings may be differently named (I'm not sure whether bios settings for memory are motherboard-specific or processor-specific or whatever). But these were the advanced memory settings I had:
    (Mushkin #996558 memory): DQS Training Control - [Perform DQS], CKE Power Down Mode [Enable], CKE Power Down Control [per Channel], Memclock tri-stating [Disabled], Bank Swizzle Mode [Disabled].
    I don't know whether these settings contributed to S3 working or not - but I did keep tinkering with them until I could get it to work. You guys may be light years ahead of me on your knowledge of this stuff - but I was able to overclock mildly with S3 working (2200 mhz @ 2533 mhz). Once again - mine was AMD, yours is Intel - so this settings may not help you at all.
    You guys are probably right about your F3 bios still having a sleep-related design flaw. When I finally got mine to work the bios was already at F6 revision. Chances are, getting S3 sleep to work might be a low priority for the Gigabyte software engineers.
    If I could get an extra 1000+ megahertz out of my overclock, I would probably choose to deal with the sleep issues and keep the overclock speed. Hope this helps......

    Packrat, I'm pretty sure the differences in the chipset, supporting firmware, BIOS, etc. are too vast for there to be a common cause on your board. All these other systems have some very common underlying features. It's unlikely that the changes you made to get stability would apply in the case of the P43/45 boards.

    Mine doesn't wake up after going to sleep also...I accidentally hit "sleep" when I meant to hit restart. Then my computer wouldn't boot and I had to turn off the power supply from behind. After that it rebooted ok. I'm staying away from sleep until a BIOS comes out to fix it.

    You can disable the sleep feature and/or if you are using vista you can change the buttons and settings so you dont accidentally hit sleep (See my post in this thread #15)
