Hi,i assume you have samsung nvme on first m2 slot.I have samsung 970 evo plus 1T ... and my computer never resumes from sleep no matter what i tried . ASUS Support replied that the motherboard ROG STRIX Z390-H GAMING was not tested with that model of ssd...and proposed a series of windows tweaks... which were already unsuccessfully tried by me.I never had that problem with my sata ssd ...so the problem is related to m2 ssd . Personally i suspect it has something to do with the power and sleep mode given by mobo/bios to m2 slot.I already have the "above 4g decoding " option disabled and my computer still cannot wake up.So, if you or anyone else have any other suggestion...it will be much appreciated.
P.S. The level of frustration is so big right now... that i want to sell my newly aquired mobo+cpu (9900k) and switch to AMD

This post is a conclusion of a loooong search for the culprit why my Windows 10 system will not resume from sleep mode successfully .
In short; the system would go to sleep and "turn on" when tried to be woken up but never got to a working state. Fans, RGB lighting, etc. etc. all turn on but basically the system just hangs/is frozen. In every other sense the system is stable as a rock! I never ever experience issues with stability.
I've been through all the usual suspects regarding these kind of issues like Windows itself, iffy drivers, BIOS versions. I even found some references that a 2080 Ti could have compatibility issues with the Samsung 970 NVME drives. All of those trails did not end up solving the problem. As it turned out it was one little ostensibly innocent option in the BIOS called "Above 4G decoding". Given the fact I've got Asus ROG-STRIX-RTX2080TI-O11G-GAMING with 11 GB of video RAM enabling above 4 decoding seemed like a plausible setting to enable (although to this point I am not sure what it does EXACTLY).
When this option is enabled the system just will not wake up successfully. When it's disabled; no problem!
So this boils down to a few points/questions (in order of relevance):
- If you're pulling your hair out and can't find the cause of the same issue; try this! I hope it will save you time and frustration.
- How does disabling the above 4G decoding affect my system? (I am in no way a miner or something. Just gaming)
- Are other people having this issue?
- What could cause this behaviour?
- Should Asus be made aware of this, and if so; How?
