Windows 7: Sleep and SSD - no go

Sleep and SSD - no go

My PC had no troubble with "sleep" or "wake up" until I connected my new Intel SSD X-25M. No it goes to sleep, but when waking again it shows the desktop, I can move the mousepointer, but that's it. Can't click on anything, nor rightclick on desktop. CTRL+ALT+DEL don't work either.
After about 30 seconds the mousepointer turns to the round circle (busy), but no changes besides that.

Is there something I can do about this, or is SSD = "no sleep mode"?

Huh? I have flashed it to the newest firmware, but I did not know that it needed a new driver?
Do you have a link?

I was getting about the same thing on OCZ Vertex for RC on both an M1330 and Dell Mini 10. Problem has gone away with builds 7127 and 7137. That was a tremendous relief; it pops right back alive like it is supposed to.
