Slick Solutions - MCE Standby Tool (MST)

I do not have a definite solution to this problem as I did not experience it.

As to power settings there is "Power Saver" option as opposed to "Balanced". You can try to switch it and see if there is any difference.
no solution..
i reinstalled the driver but the screen the problem is the same.
in power settings i configure to don't go to sleep.
and i tryied the app but don't seems to work or don't understand.

it's weired

Marciton and wolfydog,

I was just thinking. Do you guys use any bootloaders or bios patches for Windows 7?

I am running my Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit RTM without any bootloaders or bios patches and everything works.

Just a thought.

Hi.
I don't think so...
i used

"Windows 7 Ultimate PT-PT-OEM-Pre-Activaded)" not RTM...
this is the final. It is the instalation of the Laptops or notebooks. It is OEM

Another Thumbs-up for Lexxion!

Thanks, Lexxion! Your tutorial is the only thing that's worked for me. I've tried everything else. Thanks for posting/hosting that tutorial.

And, good news is I finally figured out how to add rotation capabilities to my tablet PC, as well! I'm writing up a blog post about that today, and I'll link it here if people want me to.

EDIT: Rather than repeat myself in the 3 threads this pertains to, here's a link to the thread where I link the blog post and the rest of the story.

OP should update the first post and list the Lexxion solution as the primary solution. The DriverMax solution is half-baked.

With W7 being released tomorrow, this thread is going to be hit on soon on a large scale.
