    I have updated the bios and all the drivers.

    No Luck.

    Sony wants me to go back to factorysettings which will not be the solution as the system always gave me a warning about the Nvidia driver. When I tried to update the driver from the Nvisdia site they said this Sony Vaio has its own Nvidia drivers. I upgraded to the last known one. Seems to have got worse.

    I have the feeling it is related to the powersaving schemes, for when I put everythinh to Never it does not happen.

    As I see zillions of postings on the net about this I am sure it is a bug in the Windows 7 software.

    PLease can anybody give advise that does not mention upgrading drivers?
