Just curious, why do you need to have it go to sleep?Yeah I do too, but I have like 13 USB devices plugged in, and comparing my system to yours is like comparing apples to time machines. That said, If I sleep, I sometimes get a kernel panic and reboot. Not always though, but I don't take the chance, just sleep the displays.
When a PC idles, it doesn't eat up that much power anyway. Just make sure to use high quality fans in the case (or good liquid cooling if you go that route) and you should be fine for years.
We used to have like 50 of the cheese grater Mac Pros and they were always on and we just let the display sleep after 5 mins and they worked fine for years.
I like it when I sit down and the system wakes up with a move of the mouse/wacom tablet or a keyboard key stroke.
Hackintoshes are always going to be buggy when it comes to sleep anyway.
As far as USB devices go, I use the old 27" Apple Cinema Displays (dual) and they have built in USB2.0 hubs...so I basically have at least 6-7 USB devices connected at all times including hubs.
