    Default For Our Vista Users: Sleep Problems Addressed

    This went up on /. today. Seems sleep is a common issue for many Vista users... as in it's just not working right since the beta. Don't know if this is really common, or if the story exaggerates a bit (probably does), but here is a list of patches and hotfixes that address (or have a possibility... no guarantees) of addressing the issues. Many of these are supposed to be included in SP1 due out in August, but for those of you having this problem and do not wish to wait (as you shouldn't), here's the list.

    Good luck to you beta testers, err, Vista Users.

    Yes, I had this problem. When returning from sleep, I had a blank screen. Cold booting didn't help. And, as it was an Upgrade CD, I couldn't do a fresh install. I had to install XP, then install Vista. Reeeeeally pissed me off.

    Specifically this:
    When recovering from a hibernate: “Cannot find uxtheme.dll” appears whenever you attempt to run (almost) any program. No matter what you do, you can’t even run Task Manager. What’s worse, a restart doesn’t fix it, and because Windows Explorer also fails to launch with this error, you need to boot from the DVD and use System Restore - Safe Mode won’t work!4


    Also, I now have this:
    Failure to establish a network connection. Everything looks OK, but you can’t connect to the internet. Your LAN signal will be there, but the internet just doesn’t work. You must restart to fix it.

    Strangely enough, it is just IE and Avant that will not work, Opera works fine. Nothing wrong with the connection at all, or with the setting on IE, or with a firewall, or needed permission, it just won't work.

    There's a workaround for that.

    You mean installing the Vista upgrade without registering, and then doing it again, registering then? Unfortunately, I didn't know about it at the time.

    Maybe taking an image from windows vista using Norton Ghost so that you can install the image directly without going through trouble in installing XP and upgraded it to Vista.

    why would you make an image of a system that's not working properly? That defeats the point.

    Speaking of, I should make a new one. Been a few months. *sigh*
