I've used Vista (home basic) for a while now and there wasn't any serious compatibility issues with the motherboard. I reinstalled it a couple of weeks back, and ever since then, there's been an issue with shutting down the computer. Usually, if I select SHUT DOWN from the start menu, the computer doesn't shut down completely, but enters a sleepish/suspended mode.The red (busy/status) light doesn't flicker, but the fan and the green (power) light remains on. Also, I have a WD My Book (500Gb) connected, and usually it shuts itself down once the computer powers down. Now though, when the computer enters this "sleepyish" mode, the power light on the My Book switches from on to off every few seconds.

Oh and also, even before reinstalling Vista, I've never been able to WAKE the computer after putting it to sleep. It just becomes unresponsive to anything (mouse, keyboard - I've tried a lot of buttons) and I have to press the power button on the computer. The motherboard is P4R800-VM, manufactured by Asus. I'm using a Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Extreme Audio sound card, and a nVidia GeForce 6200 A-LE graphics card. I don't think they've got any conflicting issues.
