The fact that this happens with Firefox, Chrome and Opera (I have confirmed on all) means this bug has to be something to do with Microsoft/Intel.
It would be really nice to see someone from Microsoft come forward and at least confirm there is a bug. We are running "Preview" software, bugs are expected, but at least confirm that it is there and they are working to fix it.
I have a feeling this may have something to do with Intel's chipset software, as I said previously I did have problems in Windows 7 with the newer chipset software and it appears that some chipset related drivers were already installed on my Windows 8.
After the weekend I have a week off so I will have a play with different settings and different chipset software to see if I can pinpoint the exact problem and hopefully be able to turn C3/C6 and EIST states back on, my CPU fan seems to be a little noisier now and I shouldn't have to turn features off to use a Microsoft Operating System which apparently supports these features.
Maybe someone else will get to the root of the problem before I do
