ASUS P6T 10.6.6 no sleep

I had scheduled sleep working fine until 10.6.3. At some point it stopped working and i found a software based solution.


FIRST OF ALL: Make sure that your bios suspend option is S3 ONLY!!!!!!


1)Open system preferences -> energy saver and click on Restore Defaults. Close it and open it again. Set you desired time for computer and display sleep. Select "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" - "Allow power button to put computer to sleep" - "Start up automatically after a power failure". DO NOT SELECT "Wake for ethernet network access"


2)Open terminal and type:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0


3)Download the PleaseSleep utility from here


Configure it as you wish and voila...Auto sleep works again just fine :)


I am running ASUS P6T (not SE or DELUXE)

I7 950

8GB 1600 DDR3

GeForce GTS 250


I found work around of installing OSx using this guide http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=189052



I had no sleep issue and problems with shutdown and restart since 10.6.2


Updated to 10.6.6 along with [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] worked fine.


Sound fixed with ALC1200 for Snow Leopard 10.6.3, 10.6.4, 10.6.5 from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...p;#entry1129229


Shutdown and restart fixed with DSDT Auto-Patcher for P6T SE


However the quoted solution to enable sleep didn't work for me.


When I am getting into a Sleep mode fans and drives are still on and I cannot wake up.

After restart form that state my Bios hangs. I have to hold power button to turn it off completely and then its boots normally.

Has anyone got a solution or any ideas how to work this around ?
