sleep asus hd7XXX p8z68-v

I just don't get it.
I reinstalled everything from scratch and now everything works... I can run MacBookPro8,3 definition and I've got both sleep and fully working PM. No freezes, even bt works. Only issue is USB3.0 but I don't really care about it :P
So again reinstallation solved all the problems. - to be honest probably trying to solve previous problems I made the ones I posted about above.
I've got one more question on another topic:
Did anyone try to install UEFI Windows 8 and OSX on the HDD? I failed trying to. It seems like GPT OSX uses is different GPT than Microsoft implemented. I partitioned my drive under Microsoft installator and OSX was unable to change anything in partition table. - Disk Utility just kept on sayin"Preparing to partition drive" or sth like that. Trying the same in opposite direction - partitioning under OSX and then installing Win8 cause Windows installator to claim that disk has MBR partition table... As far as I remember OSX use hybrid MBR/GPT and Windows is not really happy about that.

Thank you all for participation in this topic :)

PS. @k3nny I decided not to patch my vbios - my mobo doesnt have fast but and besides I usually will use sleep rather than shutdown so FBrotate shouldn't annoy me. Go to the full post

Got Win8 and ML on an SSD and this is the partition layout from Windows' diskpart:

DISKPART> lis par

Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 System 200 MB 1024 KB
Partition 2 Reserved 128 MB 201 MB
Partition 3 Primary 42 GB 330 MB
Partition 4 Primary 76 GB 42 GB


That's the procedure I used a while ago:

1. Booted a FAT32 Win8 thumb drive via UEFI and manually partitioned the disk using cmd (Shift+F10 to open it).
1.1 diskpart, lis dis, sel dis <#>, clean, format gpt, create partition efi size=200, format quick fs=fat32, create partition msr size=128
(theoretically other sizes will work but Mac will complain later if efi is not exactly (or smaller than?) 200mb; also Win8 won't create any additional recovery partition this way).
1.2 Used the Win8 installation manager to create two NTFS partitions: One for Win8, the other for later Mac use.
2. Booted a dual partition Mac thumb drive with UEFI Clover on it.
2.1 Used Disk Utility to erase the second NTFS partition as HFS+ and used it for installation.

In case you need to restore the Win8 bootloader, you can use:
"bcdboot.exe c:\windows /s s: /f UEFI"
where c: is the win8- and s: the efi partition

Thx I will give it a try when I screw something up on my actual system - I don't want to reinstall everything again if I don't have to...

@k3nny: Thx a lot I've made fresh OSX and Win8 install on my Laptop - Asus U36SD - and used your mini-guide to install both systems in UEFI mode, everything works fine. :)
Thanks a lot!
