that's funny-until I put win 7 on several machines, I always had failures with resuming from sleep mode on an XP netbook (fresh out of the box), and similar issues with a Vista Toshiba Satellite (again, fresh out of the box, and after SP1). Win 7 has been the ONLY flavor of Windows that's had zero issues with sleep mode (for me).
