i don't get it....I have both manuals and they both show the s1 and s3 state in the manual--unless this motherboard hasbeen seriously modified by the system builder

MSI does sell generic motherboards to system builders and I suspect that is what you have...how do you know you have the most recent bios?

Are you sure there is no problem with your monitor instead of with your PC?
Can you see anything on your monitor when he goes into standby mode?

just double-checking...

Absolutely nothing, not a thing can be seen on the screen as it goes into Standby mode.

Both, it happens in both XP and Vista

if you have a second machine, swap the psu out with the other machines and see if the issue repeats
