Windows 7 Professional SP1

That's my take. Vista Business (specifically) SP2 - is the best experience that I have had with MS OS's in a long long while. For my particular needs - it is outstanding in all aspects.

I just thought it might be time to give Win 7 a legit shot - but seems there are issues still lurking....

No biggie...I can always try again mid year or in the fall....

The other option is simply to do what I do here and never use the sleep or hibernate modes. Vista was definitely a larget step up from XP and all the problems seen there but wasn't performance minded after all the delays. The added weight of the new themes and gadgets as well as background services are what took a toll while it was much more stable.

7 was a big turnaround for MS and hopefully will progress further with the following versions to come. But it's still new out of the box and like any other version something needs to be fixed! At least you can run 7 "out of the box" without the first SP however!

Windows 7 Professional SP1

Just an update on this - I did a fresh Vista 64SP2 install yesterday and by only changing a single thing - the Power Plan to High Performance - this PC is sleeping and waking and backing up and then sleeping like a baby.

I literally made that one single playing around with powercfg checking Power Management waking in the middle of the night because of some "mystery" hardware nothing. Just a blissful sleeping machine when I came down with my morning coffee. And a successful WHS backup @12:20am

So - Windows 7 - with your bright and shiny outlook - your older brother beats you hands down the Sleep Mode department.

Hopefully a service pack (or two) will help in this area....
