Have tried the above, but PC still locks up I'm sorry to say. It's a little frustrating, but thanks for your patience Megahertz07.

I can't remember having this issue with Win 7 Home - only with Ultimate. There could be something in Ultimate that my system doesn't like . . . ?

Don't think it's related to the Win 7 version. All uses same basic core.

Try a System File check
Open a CMD window and type
sfc /scannow

Tried the scan and it completed without any errors.

Am still getting lock ups after sleep, but have just noticed that the PC doesn't appear to lock up if I use Hibernate instead. Have gone through several hibernate cycles without locking up. By now, I would have had 2 or 3 when using Sleep.

Don't know if that can shed any light on things . . .

My last bullet.
Launch a CMD window and Type:
chkdsk c: /f

It will ask if you want to schedule a disk check on next boot = Yes

Pay attention on the results

Many thanks for you patience. I ran Checkdisk as above and studied the results. Wasn't sure what to look for. A couple of things were picked up but nothing could recognise. I assume Checkdisk repairs anything it finds?

I tested Win 7 again and it still locks up unfortunately - but not every time. I maybe stuck with this . . . as far as Win 7 is concerned . . .

Max the performance of everything in the power settings, I have encounter this issue before and I believe it to be due the suspending of certain devices based on their power, especially the processor minimum state. MAX it all baby. This way the OS cannot get confused trying to wake everything up back to where it was, it's just ON!

And yes, the correct chipset drivers or latest chipset updates are always helpful, or....maybe reinstall the older chipsets! HHA< never know!
