Windows 7: 7068, x64: Resume from sleep freezes W7

7068, x64: Resume from sleep freezes W7

Although I found some issues that are almost similar, nothing seems to really solves the issue I have.

Build 7068, x64 freezes after a resume from sleep (S3). The desktop image is visible but the system totally hangs. Only a hard power down works.
I use two USB devices (keyboard and remote) and both can resume the system from sleep. Strangly the system did work for the first day and now even a clean install fails on resume...?

Vista x86, had no issues at all, rock solid operation for almost a year.

System config:
Gigabyte EP45ds4 (BIOS P9), E8400, ATI HD2600pro (this card only works with driver 8.12 in Vista SP2 compatibility mode to enable svideo output), HVR2200.

Hi boldor,

If you do these steps it should show the problem and you can trouble shoot from here.

windows vista 64 and windows 7 pro 64

now playing is now a unique window. if you haven't figured it out by now, press cntrl + 3 and it will open the now playing part of the player. simply right click inside the player and you'll see a familiar menu which includes the enhancements your looking for. i knew MS decided to just move it around on us. i think for the better!
