I only know that some firmwares dont support the sleep commands. As I
have written in my first mail, please check if IMC is present in
original firmware. Maybe IMC straps are just enabled and no IMC code
gets executed, or the IMC crashed.
I will be AFK until start of the next week.

The IMC does not need to be active for a working system (AFAIK), but to me it seems like it is active but somewhat misconfigured. Let's see what Rudolf says about it. He know it way better than me.
