I have the same problem with a Dark Hero MB, Been working fine for the last year, but a couple of weeks ago I started getting the no start from power button unless I completely discharge power. Start switch on MB is always white when this happens. System is used daily, turned on when I get home from work, turned off when I go to bed.
It doesn't happen every time, might get 4 days starts, 2 days doesn't.
Dark Hero MB Bios 3801

I've had Asus boards for years, But having read how they are dealing with this and sending out refurbed boards as replacement for a premium priced MB, I doubt I will ever buy their products again.
did you send in your mainboard to get a replacement device, or did you send in your mainboard after receiving a new board?
That's a kind of hijacking, but it's related to wake/sleep.
I got my replacement board because of the wake/sleep problem (this topic) but I still have Bluetooth problems.
It could happen that the Bluetooth (Intel(R) Wireless Bluetooth(R)) device disappears from the device manager.
Only a power off for a few seconds will help.
I had this problem before on Windows 10 and now Windows 11.
Anyway I don't think that can be a Windows or any other software problem because the device just disappears (I can see it disabled when I list all hidden devices).
Anyone else with that problem?
I got the replacement before I returned the old board. Works fine, they used DHL for pickup.
Something bad: They made a mistake with the invoice/customs papers. They haven't marked the board as a replacement. So I got an invoice for handling/tax from DHL/customs. Finally Asus contacted DHL and I hope they really solved the mistake 🙂
So you have a new motherboard to fix one hardware problem (the wake/sleep issue) and your new motherboard has a hardware bluetooth problem?
You got it. Anyway, I have noticed this kind of problem also on a Gigabyte Aorus Master (separate OS install).
Mh, I am tempted now to finally go ahead and have my Dark Hero swapped for one without the wake/sleep issue, but I am nervous that I might get a board that then has other issues like yours.
My motherboard has no problems other than the wake/sleep problem.
Btw how did you go about having your motherboard swapped out with a new one ? I have sent a DM today to Starrain@Rog
If I got a new mainboard in advance, I would swap my mainboard as well.
@JBROG87 did you already get feedback from Starrain@Rog?
Kinda crazy how many Asus boards are affected by this issue, wtf is Asus doing?
Btw, any progress on getting this topic talked about by the wider Tech media Like GamersNexus ?
Bitwit just did a video on his Youtube channel about RGB software causing BSOD's and crashing.
I haven't read through this entire thread, but I have this Patriot folder on my computer and do not remember installing it. I have AURA lighting effect addon instaalled as well.
Like I said, I haven't read through this entire thread so I don't know if this software has been discussed as a possible problem.
His entire video is really worth watching, I think. He did a great job.
