It comes to their beds at night, and touches them in naughty places!

You might also check your PSU... I'm convinced that it killed mine. Or, alternatively, that the PSU caused some issue with your mobo. Seems like I found a thread about the issue a while back and now can't locate it...

Needless to say, go into your power options and turn off sleep mode/hibernate...

Quite possible. S3 suspend to RAM draws from the PSU's +5VSB output, and if +5VSB doesn't behave we'll get problems varying from hang ups to fried mobos. Crappy PSUs come with crappy +5VSB circuit, more prone to failure. Example of mobo serial killer piece of junk PSU:

That's a bit drastic, with decent hardware (PSU, mobo, etc.) in good condition S3 is as safe or safer than shut down/cold power on.

Failures in PC components can always happen no matter what, just because something got good reviews doesn't mean it never fails. I would recommend testing the PSU
