Interesting about the drivers. The two hotfixes I mentioned above didn't
work, but I have found that if I turn off the wireless card switch on the
front of my X60 Tablet, the system will sleep and awake quite a few times.
BUT other hardware stops working (for example, the fingerprint reader gets
confused after the second wake up and stays powered off). After about two
days of sleeping and waking, I guess all the other hardware gets confused and
I finally have to reboot. Guess there are still plenty of driver issues for
Vista. I hear that SP1 for Vista goes into beta in a couple of weeks, with a
target of this Fall for release. We'll see if this corrects these
