I am running Vista, when I select the sleep button the computer closes down OK. When I press enter, or the power button the computer swtiches back on, but the monitor remains black and no periperherals like card readers are re-connected.

Any ideas why?

This is an issue that may be addressed by the update due tomorrow via Automatic Updates; click here

Don't be tempted to get them from that link, they were leaked versions.

The updates on that neowin website have already been released by Microsoft.

Go down to my posts on the thread below and download and install the 2 updates from Microsoft then try and use the sleep option and see if your computer resumes properly,

Jimmy14; Thanks, I'll hook my Vista laptop up and get them when I get to work tomorrow.

sibaw; Have you downloaded them already? If not use the Start menu search bar to find Updates and go from there.

Thanks will do

Microsoft have only made them 2 updates available through their website and they have not been released into Windows Update but it could happen tomorrow when they release all the monthly updates.

Now here is an interesting thing, I did what you suggest and windows update stated there was an update for my Nvidia Ge Force 7600GS, so I ran the udpate - but it failed code 80070103 which could mean I have a later version already installed. So I tried a graphics card update from Device manager and Vista reported I have an up to date driver. Sleep still does not work, where do we go from here. It's a new machine so I suppose I can contact microsof?

OK, I will wait and see. My laptop has been working well so far, except for Windows Mail being painfully slow (swapped to Thunderbird) and the Calender crashing as soon as you reboot after adding an entry. If they're not part of automatic updates I'll download them manually.

7600GS - you might need one of the drivers from here; click here

I tried 162 on my new Dualcore/7900GS/XP build this week and it failed miserably so I went back to v94.

Thanks I got the latest Nvidia drivers and installed them - I will just contac MS.
