    What does happen when you try to awake your PC? Nothing at all, or a certain system crash ? Have you installed all the appropriate downloads from Windows Update?

    I think I had similiar problems a long time ago, I think I solved it either by updating my chipset drivers or my BIOS, I'm pretty sure it was my BIOS. If that still don't work, try fail safe settings in BIOS, I'm pretty sure the problem is in BIOS.

    I had similar problems that I managed to resolve by uninstalling and reinstalling the ATI catalyst drivers. I found this MCE Standby tool utility that may be helpful to someone, and it does seem to be helpful in diagnosing and correcting standby problems. Just google it.
