    Do you mean hibernation fail also?
    Hibernation is not sleep, it is shutdown(S5), and reboot normally.

    BTW does restart from windows boots normally?

    It will restart from windows normally. I have not tried hibernation, but sleep works. I have contacted GB support and awaiting a response.

    What do you have the BIOS sleep option set to S1 or S3?

    Please flash to the latest Rev 1.0 BIOS, they are the same

    Thanks again for replying. I have tried both states S1 & S3 unsuccessfully. I just flashed to F6 as you suggested, which is the latest stable version, but it did not fix the problem.

    I am still awaiting Gigabyte support to open my e-mail - hopefully they have a suggestion.

    Ahh ok, Well let us know what they say. All sounds very odd to me, but you know I can't help from here other than the advice I have already offered.

    Not sure what else it could be?

    You could try a clean or dual install of Any OS, and see if you notice the same results

    I was getting the same results when I did a clean install of Vista 64 before I applied my Win7 64 upgrade / clean install, so it seems to be happening on two different OSs. I will post back if I ever hear from Gigabyte.

    I actually had this exact problem. It has to do with the RAM running in dual channel mode (at least for me it did). If I ran in single or mixed channel it was fine because the bandwidth did not exceed a limit that the board can handle. If you want dual channel mode, you need to adjust the multiplier in the BIOS. 2.00D worked nicely for me, but your config could be different.

    This was frustrating. It wasn't until I ran my PC with one of the RAM sticks out that it shutdown correctly and after some further testing I figured it was when running in dual channel (2 or 4 sticks) that I had the shutdown problem. Once you adjust the multiplier you can have dual channel and shutdown correctly. Hope this helps.

    Hmm, thanks for joining to post your findings!

    Not a very optimal fix though, hopefully this can be addressed with a BIOS update.

    I actually had the samething happended to me when I had my GA-P35-DS3L board. Vista 64 wouldn't shut down 7/10 times. It didnt' bother me as I don't shutdown my system often. I put it in sleep mode most of time for quicker start up. I just thought may be some wired on the board I didn't connect right.
