    Ah well it seems that you know a bit about updating hardware and keeping the same os installation. However I still feel that it has got something to do with it. I totally understand about the time factor and how much of a pain and time consuming it is to reinstall fresh, and the wife thing to. If she had her way i wouldnt even have a computer, let along a room full of them lol. Can I suggest then, to just for the fun of it get a spare drive SATA or IDE and install a fresh copy of bindows on it weather vista or XP and see if it goes to sleep then. It wont take you much longer than an hour. So also have you just for fun put your sleep settings in the BIOS to S1 and seen what happens?

    I have tried S1 and it seems to work perfectly. The monitor goes off and I assume the machine powers down to some extent but the fans remain on and the power light blinks continuously. It wakes up from what appears to be a very light sleep without any issue. For someone that understands the inner working of XP this is probably a very good clue to help focus on exactly what is causing the S3 wake up issue.

    I think you have a good idea. It is very easy to just plug in a spare SATA drive in place of my C: drive. It will be interesting to see what the Microsoft activation police think about having two separate drives activated with the same serial number and same hardware profile. Too late tonight to try it as I have to get up about 0500 for work.

    Yeah Well atleast if you do it then you will know if it is or isnt something to do with bindows. I wouldnt even bother activating it dude, if you only going to be running it to test this one off thing. its up to you. Let us know how you go.
