Sorry to see all the trouble people are having. I consider myself lucky in that my v1.0 installation was trouble free in every respect, ie, no sleep, audio or USB issues. As a newbie I had less (no) trouble than a typical Windows (pre 7) install. It is clear that v 2.0 is a difficult install. Maybe v 1.0 is now unavailable, but it works like a charm. Hope the revisions/updates come along soon!

with a DSDT i'm pretty sure it works fine. if it isn't working for you try opening up energy saver in system preferences and ticking all three checkboxes.

Eh, I think 889a boards are better. Scored a UD6 for $150.

I meant v 1.0 for this board compared to v 2.0; there may certainly be better overall choices. Then again this board was so easy :p Dumb luck.

Sleep/wake is perfect

DVD spins up every so often though

it seems like using a sony optiarc or pioneer dvd drive fixes that problem.

I have a 2.0 with an LG DVD drive and haven't noticed any spinning noises. How loud is it?
