can't sleep with windows 7

I've installed Win7 RC on a Motion LS800 tablet. nearly everything is working fine except that the sleep option is greyed out and I can only hibernate, restart, and shut down. how can I fix this??

Thanks in advance

not sure but i think you have to install the vista drivers to enable all chipset funtions (like sleep)

the problem is some of the vista drivers aren't on the support website. they're only listing you can get it via windows update but that doesn't show in 7
