    I agree with chike sounds like its just a bad bios/board. You can try flashing again maybe do a Hard reset. Pull motherboard battery and put jumper on clr_cmos pins overnight and see what happens.

    Also try the board out of the computer case. Sit it on top of card board or the box it came in and try and start it. Could be a short in the power button or in the case its self.

    Aside from the current BIOS issues, when the system is running have you tested it fully with several programs for stability?

    If your system is not stable 100% then at anytime, especially if sleep is involved, any number of random errors can happen that will corrupt the BIOS. So before you decide to RMA or anything like that, I'd for sure be testing the memory fully 10+ passes with Memtest86+ latest version, couple hours with HCI memtest, then at least 4 hours with Prime95. That way you are sure it's stable and instability due to incorrect settings or faulty memory ect is not what's causing this to keep happening to you. Do these tests at the settings you would normally be using when this seems to happen.
