Re: Windows 7 on X200

Has anyone found a fix for this problem? I tried uninstalling beta drivers and updated all of them with drivers dated 10/22 (PM, Hotkey, Onscreen,... drivers) but problem still exists. Some times I can't adjust the brightness after sleep, sometimes LCD won't come on at all.

Re: Windows 7 on x60s - will not resume from sleep

I haven't had this problem since I changed (in Bios setup) to ATA drive compatible mode. I can reproduce the problem everytime by changing it back to SATA mode. But then, my drive doesn't pass the Fujitsu diagnostic tests, so that might have something to do with it. Might worth a try if you're frust...

I uninstalled the Lenovo Power Manager program, and now the computer can sleep with native Windows 7 power manager.

Re: Windows 7 on x60s - will not resume from sleep

I have a T60, and it won't sleep correctly either, the system attempts to shutdown the monitor (went blank, then I can see some activities on the HD and that's it, it just sits there without completing the process. The system hibernates fine. I'm using the Beta version of the PM manager and PM drive...

Disable access connections and let Windows try to connect it for you. Good idea. I had this problem recently and used the same technique. It turned out that my Access Connection profiles were corrupted. If you can connect using Windows Wireless then you probably have the same problem, just unintall...

I upgrade to 7200rpm drives on both my T41 and T60, and I would do it again. The machines boot up much faster and starting up application is also sped up. Not sure how much of an increase but after all, the drive is the bottleneck in the computer, so anything is an improvement.
