It sounds like you are using S1 sleep, and S3 is what you want.
Look in In BIOS Power Management Setup for settings to get S3.
The screen print is from page 30 of the MB manual at EMAXX

With S1, my PCs keep the fans running and the power light blinking.
With S3, the fans stop and the power light is off.

Hope this helps,
