Just FYI -- I paid a visit to a local electronics store and tested the Vista
sleep functionality on several machines they had out on display. Each of
them went to sleep and woke up properly; so it will work. Evidently I have
done something to my machine that has buggered the sleep function. If I
figure it out, will share here. I may have to do a Recovery to factory
installation to get rid of whatever I did. Bah.
