Since I have a workaround for the hang issue that others have been having (by using a plug-in ethernet card), my concern now is the display resolution changing. It is quite annoying to reset the resolution everytime I wake the computer up! I might as well turn off the computer. If I put the computer to sleep, then wake it back up, all with the connected monitor turned on, I have no problems. Its only when there has been a wake, followed by going to sleep (due to idle timeout) cycle with the connected display turned off. This occurs in the middle of the night as I use Windows Home Server (WHS) to perform backups. I do have a custom resolution as I use the nVidia utility to Resize my Desktop. Perhaps this is the problem? I'll try it again without a custom resolution.
UPDATE: Looks like the issue with the resolution changing only occurs when you've setup a custom resolution via the nVidia "Resize Desktop" utility. I do this because I am losing a bit of the sides of the desktop when displayed with my HDTV Projector. I effectively make a custom resolution to avoid stuff getting chopped off the sides of the windows desktop. Well it looks like this gets "reset" to the default minimum resolution when you awake the board with the display turned off. Meanwhile, if i just use the maximum resolution (1920x1080) and don't resize the desktop to create a custom resolution, the computer can wake/sleep/wake with or without the display on, and the resolution is remembered.
Has anybody encountered this problem, or if not, could somebody try it for me? TIA. ASUS wants me to RMA the board back in, which is a royal pain, especially if it ends up being a bug in the driver.
