Windows 7: S3 resume not working

S3 resume not working

I have a win7 64 with 890GX Pro3 MB and GTS-450 video card. I built this computer a few months ago and resume was always slow and now does not work at all. I have updated BIOS, motherboard, OS, USB 3.0 and Logitech mouse. Application logs donít reveal anything but performance logs show a bunch of USB errors, device manager is clean. From a clean boot with all USB devices unplugged I still have resume failures even with S3 disabled in BIOS. Lights are on but no one is home.
I have a resume trace in my dropbox and would greatly appreciate a brave volunteer to take a look at them. Open to ideas on how to resolve this.
Thanks in advance.

I set Check Ready Bit to disabled in the BIOS. Resume works like a charm.
