Desktop Manager Fails in S3 mode.

When I "sleep" my machine in S-3 mode; upon waking, WDM quits and reverts to Basic mode, losing my prefered window color setting. Only a full re-start wil fix it!
When I set the BIOS to use S-1 suspend type, sleep/wake-up does not cause the problem - my window color setting is retained - however my machine does not power down to the same degree as with S-3 (the fan stays on).

This is a real bummer, since I would like to use S-3, but I do not like the standard "Windows Blue" color scheme. I like to set my desktop to more subdued shades of gray. It is easier on my eyes.
