    Default Ga-ep45-ud3r still no S3 standby fix

    Spent all day troubleshooting this board again trying to get S3 sleep to work. I have no interest in OCing so all my performance related settings are default or relaxed. I would like to use S3 so I can save money on electricity while having my computer ready to use when I need it. Gigbyte boards have a myriad of issues when it comes to S3 and gigabyte doesnt release bios updates to correct these issues. My EP45-UD3R is still sold in major online stores and is one of the most popular socket 775 boards available but no update to the board for standby fix exists. This issue existed on XP SP3, Ubuntu, and Windows 7 so its not OS related. Basically what happens is my computer will go into sleep mode and upon wake will continually reboot loop. If this wake occured while I was away my hardware would continually powercycle every ~3 seconds causing severe stress on all components. I have tried flipping various settings in BIOS on/off and adjusting certain values but no luck. I have 2x2 GB of Patriot mem, and ive tried setting mem volt to 2.1 from Auto and this caused my computer to shutoff/force hibernate instead of going into S3 standby. The computer will then post first and windows will take about a minute or 2 to fully load my saved desktop but windows has no recollection of what caused the computer to wake from standby. <event xmlns=""><system>

    try to disable all the wakup options in bios or try to uninstall all drivers by driver sweeper or add or remove(clean uninstall) to the latest drivers or update to the latest bios or go in to control panel and power options and chnage the settings
