Resuming from Standy when lid is closed on laptop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an IBM Thinkpad T60s, installed in a dual boot configuration with XP Pro and Vista RC1 Build 5600

    When I close the lid of the laptop, it goes into standby.  When I open it again, the display never comes back, though it looks like it is up as the hard drive light is active.  It never initializes the display.  I have to power it off and back on again.

    Is there a setting in the video driver that I need to set?  The video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 (Microsoft Corporation WDDM)

    Any thoughts?

  • Resolved it by downloading and installing the Vista ATI driver from the ATI website.  Works great now, resume time is almost instantaneous.

    I should have done that before I did anything else.  DUH!!!!!
