sigh, reinstalled my friend's HTPC as well (exact same hardware, but with Nvidia gfx instead of ATI) and his MediaPortal DOES resume after a S3 standbythe major one doesn't start MediaPortal after an S3 resume (using the powerbutton on my remote, not using any powerscheduler plugins), I had to create my own trigger in the Task Scheduler to let MP start again (see screenie).
the difference is that his MediaPortal isn't beeing closed when entering standby mode, because when resuming from standby the last screen that was open is beeing showed on his screen for a couple of seconds, than MediaPortal is beeing closed and restarted.
my MediaPortal is already beeing closed before entering standby mode.
one other thing (don't have the logs yet, I could collect them this afternoon) is that his Volume Control did work for a couple of hours, but maybe because we've played around with the volume settings it isn't possible anymore to set the Volume Control to Wave, it's changing back to Master everytime I hit the OK button in the MediaPortal Configuration
with the control beeing locked to Master, changing the volume (or mute) on the remote control doesn't do anything at all (besides playing a sound it received a signal from the remote control tho), but doesn't show the on screen Volume bar or Mute picture.
he's using a Philips 5100 (with usb "dongle") remote control, configured as a Microsoft MCE Remote (I'm using a normal MCE Remote with the IRTrans option).
the last thing is when he plays a movie, with Moving Pictures, for a while, stops the movie (and so gets back to the movie list) and selects the movie again (with the resume option) everything is frozen for 5 to 10 seconds before the movie resumes again.
