Did the laptop come with Vista preinstalled or did you upgrade to it? If
the former, contact the laptop mftr. because there is a problem with
their drivers and power management software. If the latter, you need to
install Vista drivers for all your hardware and any specialized power
management software. You must get the drivers and laptop software from
your laptop mftr.'s website for your specific model laptop. If the
laptop mftr. does not have Vista drivers, contact them to find out when
they will. If your laptop will never have Vista drivers, put XP back on
