    My MCE box was working fine including all the S3 standby and wakeup. Due to a change of location I could plug into the network using ethernet on the motherboard instead of the current wireless. After this my machine would keep waking itself up from standy :/

    After a bit of thinking I checked the network card properties and it had WOL active so I turned it off and now S3 is back to normal.

    I thought it was worth mentioning what with all the S3 problems people have. I reckon the network card gets overlooked in a lot of cases :)
