sprocketoctopus, Thank you for posting in the Intel® Communities Support.
In reference to your question, based on the released notes for BIOS 0049, there are no fixes for the specific issues that you are asking for, waking up from sleep and shutting down issues:
For the shutdown problem, you can always try the suggestion provided in the link below:
"I do have a support ticket with Jeffry.V. but last I heard they were still working on both these problems.", Yes, that is correct, so what we suggest is to keep checking that case that is already open for possible updates on this matter and a possible solution.
Any questions, please let me know.
