Power save mode STM32F205RG

I am using STM32F205RGT6 Cortex-M3 microcontroller and coding with IAR Embedded Workbench.

I plan to keep the microcontroller in a power saving mode most of the time except when an external component tries to either communicate via SPI (the STM32 microcontroller is meant to be a SP slave) or via USB.

One external compinent is connected via SPI (PB12-15) and PC is connected via USB (PA11-12).
The communication works fine - I have tested both the SPI as well as USB.
I figured that once I am done setting up SPI and USB I will call a power saving function and add the same function call at the end of interrupt service routines. I have found PWR_EnterSTANDBYMode and PWR_EnterSTOPMode (in stm32f2xx_pwr.h) both of which I tried using.
However with such arrangement I cannot establish any communication (SPI or USB) with the microcontroller.

Is there something extra that needs to be configured (for example which pins should wake the microcontroller up)?
Am I using wrong function? Or wrong header file?
Can you point me to an example resembling such case (I could not find anything similar on ST's website)?

Any constructive feedback would be welcome.
