My rig has been doing this since i first put it together. Whenever i put it into sleep mode (which i like to do since i don't turn it off completely most of the time) and try to start it later, instead of going back into windows where i left it, it will reboot itself and then get stuck in a power on/off loop until i flick the power switch on the PSU off. Every single time. When i turn it back on it goes straight the "resuming windows" screen like it should for coming out of sleep mode and goes back to where i left it.

Any ideas? I had this same problem with my last build as well. I've tried updating the BIOS, changing sleep mode settings in windows and such but nothing has worked so far.

There's, as far as I remember, a couple of different sleep modes. SA03 and SA01, or something vaguely like that. Have a look in your BIOS and see what you can find.

Difference between S1 (POS) and S3 (STR) standby mode in BIOS?

That talks about it. Might help, not sure. Haven't looked into it myself.

I tried both of the sleep modes in the BIOS and no luck. S1 is pretty much worthless IMO as nothing actually powers down.

Any other ideas?

Funny thing is both of my builds that have had this problem have been with Gigabyte boards. Yet my old AMD build with its ASUS board works just fine.

I'm almost positive its a hardware issue since i've had both VIsta and Win 7 on it and both have had the same problem.
