My old motherboard was acting pretty iffy so I bought a new board and reformatted everything. Installed my windows updates and some other standard stuff.

Now for some reason my computer will not go to sleep. Previously when I put the computer to sleep everything powered down but could be brought back up with the touch of a button. With my new board though the monitor goes to standby but everything appears to keep running at full speed. A friend mentioned that some motherboard do this but I'd never heard of it before. I'm thinking possibly some sort of hardware issue? Is there an easy way to determine?

New mobo is an ASRock X58 Extreme.

Thanks!

I have seen that happen with older equipment, but nothing for the last few years. Have you checked the BIOS settings for suspend states that are allowed?
Sleep = STR (Suspend to Ram)
Hibernate = STD (Suspend to Disk)

I'll check when I get home. Other than flashing the bios to the most recent version I've not touched them.
