S3 Sleep mode disabled with SMT disabled

When disabling SMT in BIOS, S3 (Energy Save) is also not available anymore on Windows 10. If checking with powercfg/a S3 is not available.

For some application disabling SMT is necessary because of performance benefits (that's also the case for Intel's HT)

S3 disable with SMT disable is not only the case on my motherboard, but also on some others I've seen so far; also some internet research shows that behavior.

Why this happens I don't see a relation, please fix if possible.
