    Now I seem to have a new problem. While I was checking the BIOS settings, I decided to take a look at PC Health Status where everything looked fine except for the -5V line, which was listed as -61.93V. I found this thread where wallaceacura hit the same -61V problem. According to posts on this:

    "...the biostar fix is shorting out a jumper right behind the on/off header"
    "Tech support told me if I didn't have the resistor value I could just short it out altogether. I took a piece of wire and soldered it to the ends of the resistors has been working OK."

    So, I'm off to email Tech support again on this...

    I can go into Stand by & Hibernate just fine. Since I hit the -61V issue, I've decided to pull the Opus until I can get a resolution on that (just don't feel safe w/ -61V propagating throughout my -5V line). However, I popped the old ATX Supply in & tested the Shutdown, Hibernate, and Stand by functions. Again, then Hibernate and Stand by functions worked properly, but the Shutdown did nothing (pushed the button & nothing happened). So, I am thinking that Shutdown is a limitation of the v7.2.

    I went into the BIOSes PC Health Status menu, under -5V, -61.93V was listed where is should have been some value close to -5V.

    Ok update from Opus on the -61V issue:

    "Our power supplies don't have -5V. What you see is noise."

    Looking back at the Opus 150W manual confirms that there is only +3.3V, +5V, +12V, and -12V. So, the -61V on the -5V seems to be a non-issue...

    Got another reply from Opus on the shutdown issue:

    "Due to the fact that the power supply boots up and goes into standby and hibernate it is definetely a software problem, the same signal triggers all three modes."

    He claims it's a software issue, I think it's a limitation of the m/b since it doesn't support S3 mode. I may look into another board at this point, but I'm not sure...

    That would be a software problem. He's referring to the BIOS, which is software that controls the hardware at the hardware level, before the OS even gets involved.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I know it doesn't help you in your situation, but it at least clarifies what the Opus TS person is telling you.
    Perhaps there's a BIOS upgrade for your Biostar board?

    Any advice is helpful, even if it's just clearing things up a bit

    I just upgraded the BIOS to the latest & greatest w/ no luck. I'm just going to have to accept that this problem is a limitation of the m/b's BIOS At least it Hibernates, so that will have to do unless I want to find a new m/b that works well w/ the Athlon XP-M.
