@ Spyware Theres nothing wrong with bumping the post, your allowed to do it once per day.

Have you got the latest BIOS installed, im pretty sure that Vista needs an updated BIOS to take full advantage of the ACPI settings. If this is the cause, then just updating the BIOS wont sort it, you will also need to do a clean install for it to take effect.
