First Win7 sleep problem-Solved

I've had trouble free first month of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 so far which is good because Vista's equivalent gave me countless sleep problems namely a completely random sleep issue.
I woke my pc up from sleep this morning to find my dvd-rw could no longer see blank cd's. After the upperfilters registry fix, uninstalling and reinstalling Itunes and uninstalling/reinstalling the drive, multiple reboots and an attempted firmware update (not needed btw i already had the current firmware and drivers). i put my pc back to sleep and woke it and bam....everything works perfect again. Just wanted to share my experience with all who might share that little glitch in the future.

Well, good for you. Many times we help people and when the computer is fixed they do not even say thank you or tell us what happened, so we could help others with the information. It is really nice of you to share your experience, so everyone could benefit. I just hope that when you have a problem and come for help, there was someone before you with a similar problem, so that you can be helped too. Have a great New Year and on behalf of the entire crew we thank you.
