Wow Jonathan, you nailed it, just like that. After rebuilding my system and installing the 70 some updates from MS I assumed SP1 was part of them...wrong. It took another 24 hours to get the notification.
I'm wondering if car makers could get away with it? Hey yeah you only have 3 wheels working but don't worry we'll send you a fix for the 4th wheel next week as for the breaks not responding we are still working on it
On the other end it's such a complex O.S. that I should be in admiration instead of being critical.
Anyway, I tested by putting the system in sleep mode from the start menu and it woke up gracefully with no BSOD. I will have to let it go in sleep mode on its own and test but it looks like it will work too.
Jonathan you have all my thanks and admiration. Go to bed happy and tell yourself several times "Damn, I'm good", I mean it LOL. And if your boss reads this..."JONATHAN DESERVES A RAISE!!!"
P.S. How do I set this thread to solved again?
