Hey Guys, its a known issue when you have a thunderbolt connection WIN 7 SLEEP is disabled.. Has anyone found a FIX for this??? Thanks in advance!!!
Using Thunderbolt with Boot Camp and Windows 7: This document says that Windows 7 won’t recognize Thunderbolt devices unless you connect them and turn them on prior to booting – Windows doesn’t support plug and play with Thunderbolt.
Also, Target Display Mode won’t work under Windows on iMacs, and sleep mode is disabled in Windows 7 if a Thunderbolt device is plugged in.
Further, you must restart Windows if you disconnect your Thunderbolt device before you can plug it in again, as well as having to restart your computer to wake from hibernation. The final blow? Under Windows, your PCI Express cards will not be recognized by plug and play on MacBook Pros unless you first disconnect or eject any Thunderbolt devices.
