To be fair it's not exactly a deal breaking bug... hmm after sleep owners may have to reconnect my USB drive.. ohh gosh what will they do?

Yeah, that's the thing. I do use the sleep function. I hate waiting for boot up. My Seagate external drive would have to be unplugged and then plugged back in every time if I understand the issue.

Has fast boot features in the BIOS (FastBoot) and some new stuff specific to Windows 8 like DirectKey (go to BIOS from standby) and ASUS Boot Setting (customizable & faster booting). I love the DirectBIOS utility in Windows that with one click the board reset and boots direct to BIOS. When you go into BIOS 100 times a day like me it is much better than sitting there hoping to hit delete at the right time.
