Windows 7: Windows doesn't resume from S3 to start recording

Windows doesn't resume from S3 to start recording


I'm having a lot of trouble getting my computer to resume from standby (S3) to start a scheduled recording. Every settings seem to be correct, BIOS, "Allow wake timers" set to true, no problems suspending/resuming with the remote and so on. But when ever I schedule a recording and put the computer to sleep . . . nothing happens. It doesn't wake up.

Please help, I'm going crazy here - this is the only thing missing to make my pc a perfect media center.
