Windows 7: Sleep mode won't wake up Custom computer build

Sleep mode won't wake up Custom computer build

I just upgraded my computer to a new mobo and CPU and for some reason sleep mode won't work. I can put the computer in sleep mode but it won't wake up. Everything turns on (Fans, hard drive, PSU) but no picture on the monitor. Also no BSOD error.
After typing in CMD and running as Admin then typing powercfg -a the results were this: The system firmware does not support this standby state.
Has anyone have a clue how to fix this cause everything is all up to date with a clean install of Windows 7 64 bit. Or does it mean Windows 7 don't like the new CPU? I don't have to use sleep mode but I rather use it if I can.
See picture below.
Besides this small problem the computer works great very fast.

After doing some research and lots of different calls to AMD, XFX, Microsoft and ASUS I was able to find out the problem with Sleep mode is the Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 XFX HD-577A-ZNFC isn't fully compatible with FX-6100. This card is too old of a card and hasn't been tested on any of the newer CPU's or hardware. Well this is a quick fix buy a new SAPPHIRE 100316L Radeon HD 6790 1GB this will fix the problem. I don't mind not using sleep mode till next month.

Computer won't wake from Sleep Mode
It does this every once in a while. It happened twice in the past 2 days. I'm not sure if it's something I left open before going into sleep mode or something else. So the computer's been in sleep mode, usually for at least an hour. I do the usual thing to wake it up, move the mouse. After a...
