Windows 7: Shuts down after resuming from sleep mode.

Windows 7 ultimate 32bit
 
 
Shuts down after resuming from sleep mode.

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate to my dell d620 laptop. The problem that I am having is that when I put it to sleep the computer will shut down when I try to wake it. I followed some instuctions for other forums and found that I need to be able to access S3 sleep mode in bios, but I have not been able to find it anywhere in bios. I ran the powercfg.exe file:

C:\Users\***>powercfg.exe -a

The following sleep states are available on this system: Standby ( S3 ) Hibernate Hybrid Sleep
The following sleep states are not available on this system:

Standby (S1)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.

Standby (S2)
The system firmware does not support this standby state.

From this I can see that only hibernate is the only option available and this is why the computer is shutting down.
Is there anyway i can enable the S1 or S2 modes or is not support on my d620. I am running on the latest version of the bios A10
Here is a list of what the (S*) commands do
S1_supported List devices supporting light sleep.
S2_supported List devices supporting deeper sleep.
S3_supported List devices supporting deepest sleep.
S4_supported List devices supporting hibernation.

Both hibernate and shut down in the power management modes work just fine. Just looking to see if anybody knows how to modify the registy to allow S3 sleep mode to work. Or if there is a way to do it from bios.
