Cool Mini 9+Win 7+ GPU weirdness - 08-14-2009, 12:22 AM

Heya all,
just a minor question..has anyone else experienced that when setting the mini 9 not to do anything when closing the lid and leaving the lid closed, that the graphics device has crashed warning comes up when u open it some times?
Happens every now and then and just wondering if I'm the only one and if theres any fix ?

I haven't had that problem. In Vista, the Mini would crash if I put it to sleep and then closed the lid right away. Don't know if it still does that or not--I just wait for the LED to start to flash before I close the lid.

Closing the lid is set to do nothing, and I've never had any problems opening the lid after it's been shut.

Never had a problem - closing the lid on mine puts it in standby and it comes out just fine.
