Windows 7: 7, SSD and waking up

7, SSD and waking up

Twice now since I installed my SSD for OS and Apps, the computer didn't want to wake up gracefully. Never had an issue with my HDD before. I leave my PC on 24/7.
I often access it from work or remotely as needed.

Anything in particular I should be looking for?

Yesterday it just wouldn't wake up, I had to do a hard shutdown.
This morning, I left iTunes running all night. I moved the mouse and it brought iTunes up and it was locked. Nothing else...had to hard reboot again.

Suggestions on my power settings?

I'd say give it a good bios reset with the onboard pin... And clear the cmos with the battery.. If you leave it on that long its definitly going to help..

I did that Thursday of last week. When I installed 7 on my new SSD. Brand new, out of the box drive.
Any other settings or idea for Windows or BIOS?
I do have the latest BIOS from Asus for my board, too.
