I've seen that message but only when I was experimenting, can't remember what I did though.

Also, this could be caused by a minor short on the board or gfx card, can you run the rig outside of the case overnight? Just have the essential parts connected. While your doing this you could also run Memtest 86+ as if there's a faulty stick, it might only cause problems when the board tries to go to standby (if it's doing suspend to ram, it fills the ram with data before going to suspend mode)
What I'm thinking is, if a memory cell in the address range above ~900mb is faulty, it will only show up in rare cases....ie. when the ram is full. I had this problem with one of my sticks, everything was fine, except for random weirdness......memtest will find the problem in minutes. Loop test #2 for ~10mins, this test is quickest in finding hardware issues, then loop test #5 for a while, this will find any issues with memory settings like wrong timings and or voltages. Test #8 will test your chip set.
You could also download a Linux Live CD like Knoppix and run with that overnight, this will eliminate XP as an issue.
