Asmodeus:ZollyMonsta: I can't even get my system to go to sleep via the power settings. It just never does :-\
No luck with that MCE Standby Tool either.
Have you enabled S3 in your bios?
Yes, S3 was turned on (by default) in the bios.
Oddly, overnight it went to sleep mode (it hadn't previously)... however it hasn't again since being brought back to life even though it hasn't been touched since at least 10:30am (sleep timer is set to 2 hours).
