Does locking make the PC sleep?
Just a thought.

I have mostly Windows machines but I also have a Mac-Mini I used to use as my media server. I recently switched over to a Win7 system as the server instead and I find it ridiculous that there are this many steps to try and get Windows to sleep properly. I had to perform no such dog and pony routines for the Mac to sleep/wake as it should.

Not for nothing but... I've been a Windows user since 1.0. YES, since it was first created, running it on a 8088 CPU. Having supported Windows back when people were pointing and laughing while I typed away in Write should grant me a little leniency when i complain about it's short-comings.

So what's my point?

I had a good experience in one area with a Mac and I expressed it.

Oh wait... or do you not think it has any?
