Is your BIOS current? Gigabyte 7ZXR BIOSes (F4) e. g. have exhibited
not-so-different troubles (once you set a suspend timeout, you could not
reset it lest you reloaded the entire BIOS anew; with American
Megatrends' BIOS this means you lose ALL settings except your Standard
CMOS setup), this problem is fixed in F5J (I did not bother to look for
an official F5 release yet).
