    I stumbled on this solution by accident and thought that I would share it.

    I installed Windows Vista, with out S3 enabled in the BIOS. Of course after changing to S3 it still did not work. I found that if you create a new power plan, that it recognizes the new S3 configuration in the BIOS and will sleep correctly.

    Hope that this helps somebody!
