When I try installing the driver I get an error that says the operating system is not supported and the setup exits.
edit: the weird thing is that after trying to install, my sleep function now works. :lol:

edit #2 : I put my mini into sleep mode and everything seemed fine but after about 20min I picked it up to move and I noticed it was extremely hot so I tried to turn it on and it didn't. I had to hold the power button down until it shut down then I restarted it and everything seemed fine. I think its almost time for me to install a new OS. I also want to add that the power light was steady and not pulsing like I think it does when in sleep mode.

Up on bittorrent there is a build 7022. this fixes all the sleep problems i had and it works with your beta key.

Sleep works fine on mine----until I move to a different network. Then I get things like> IP address conflict, opening *My Computer* only brings up a blank window with the load bar never reaching completion. Opening Firefox brings up a blank window and all of my settings are gone, I can type an address in or info in the search box and it does take me to the page or search results, a restart fixes this. Does anyone know how to clear my IP/router info from comp using cmd? I forgot how.

IPCONFIG /RELEASE and IPCONFIG /RENEW will force the network interface to dump it's current DHCP settings and refresh.

My previous suggestion of installing the Vista Intel 945 driver in my previous post does not work. The laptop would sleep and wake fine for one time only. The second attempt does not return to windows properly, leaving me with a blank screen.

However, with a recent install of build 7048, my laptop can be put to sleep numerous times and return to Windows just fine.

Someone in the "Build 7048" thread mentioned it crashed from sleep, so I'm watching that. What you've said is very positive, though! <fingers crossed>

Been running 7057 for a week now, and had no issues so far (10+ sleeps).
