just wondered if you had already gone through this option.
I have. First place I looked. All I have left to go is the botched 9.5 hd radeon Catalyst upgrade. I had to restore to 9.4 which is working fine but perhaps that setup some sort of conflict in power op mode? It's reach but ...I am fresh out ideas.

I hope this wasn't mentioned, but there are many options listed in Help and Support.

Just type in laptop power.

Sleep Issue Resovled!

Thanks to all who replied to my thread. All were good suggestions. In the end it turned out to be a combination of an updated hotfix for my Ati Radeon (I knew that was part of the problem) and a new Bios update that Dell had just relesesed . I flashed it, installed the new card profile and viola.
Thanks again everyone.

Great help! I installed W7 last night, 6/5/09, and the Wave keyboard & Mouse would lock up but processes kept running. The BIOS S3 fixed my woes.
Thanks a bunch.

Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

What was the fix for this? I have the Studio XPS 16 with the 3670 ati card. I have latest drivers and bios from the dell web site.

I can hibernate and resume, but when I suspend the resume fails. There is some sort of screen that comes up that says windows detects and error and will shut down to protect the hardware -- It comes and goes so quickly I cant really read it.

anyway, what have people done to get this working? I have win7 ultimate 64 bit....

thanx so much.
