I have reformatted and installed Vista on my T60. My device manager shows the above hardware as Not Working.
What is it? Do I need it? And if so, then which driver should I look for on hte Lenovo site?
I did load the Thinkpad ACPI driver for Vista, as the one that MS rolled out didn't work - in fact it stopped working totally on my system. Installing the Lenovo driver fixed that.
I installed the TPM driver as Vista didn't have that, although currently nothing uses it.
The only thing my system has not working now is the fingerprint reader... and there is no release download for that yet. The way this last week has been going, with 2 or 3 updates a day to the Lenovo site, I'd say they're preparing for the 30th and we'll see a release driver pretty soon.
Vista appears to work well with most things being native. I see no need to install things like Access Connections and the like when the built-in stuff in Vista is so good.
As for installing 'Message Centers' and the likes - they're a complete waste of disk space.
Like you though, I would be interested to hear if the Lenovo 'Power Manager' is more effective than the built-in Vista power management. I'd be surprised if it makes much difference, although there are some things like changing the screen brightness that Vista doesn't change automatically - although that's easy to change from the keyboard manually.
Has anyone tried the Lenovo Power Manager? How well does it integrate? Does it make your batteries last any longer?
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface, and it is what controls the power management features of the computer. See following for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acpi

I see the following Vista Atmel TPM driver for a T42. Perhaps it will work on a T60, since the XP driver works for both. No guarantee of your results with the driver below.
