comment BIOS issues: should I replace mobo or something else?
Ha, so, flashing the BIOS actually helped noticeably, but the issue came back after awhile. -sigh-

comment BIOS issues: should I replace mobo or something else?
I installed nTune a few years ago. I suppose it's possible that nTune messed up the BIOS somehow. But no, nTune has not been installed for a few years now (I've had this mobo since 2007).

I've flashed the BIOS in the past, but I figured I'd do it again, what could I lose? Since flashing, it appears all is well! Thank you so much! @CharlieRB, if you put that as an answer, I'll mark it as the correct one. :) Not sure why I didn't try it before writing this question. I probably just didn't think of it.

What worked was re-flashing the BIOS. Since re-flashing, I've come out of sleep ~8 times and out of hibernate once with no issues (very unusual!) I marked this as the answer because it's the only answer.

Thanks. Sometimes the time goes to Jan 1 2003, other times it loses just a few hours.

I see someone gave this question a -1. Is it considered wrong to ask diagnosis questions like this?

comment Fix “bad” NTFS Partition
Hmm, suppose I could just delete the new data partition, make a new very small ntfs partition in its place, then use ntfsclone to re-copy the original data partition from drive B over the top of the smaller partition. This would fix everything. But I'm still convinced gParted is wrong when it reports bad sectors, I would still like to know if there is a way around it.
