I spoke too soon. A BIOS update seemed to work at first, by that I mean that after I flashed the BIOS to the most current version, I could hit the power button, or the keyboard to wake it from sleep. However, a week after that was done, my friend bought a SSD 128 GB Samsung 840 which I promptly threw into the case, installed the OS, and thought I was good to go.
Now, I have the same problem I started out with, even with the BIOS updated, the computer will not wake from sleep. It requires the machine to be unplugged or the PSU switched off, for it to return to life. Obviously the computer doesn't like this and as such my friend has disabled his sleep mode and gotten into the habit of just shutting his comp down.
Ideally, I would like to find some sort of fix for this. I'm almost positive that the issue lies between the Mobo and the PSU, however I cannot find any settings in the UEFI itself to specify the sleep level (S1, S3).
I have not yet tried plugging a case fan directly into the PSU yet (I cannot find the cable I need). I am willing to buy a cable if need be, however, it was working just fine before I installed the SSD.
