I wrestled with Vista SP1 for the better part of Friday night and early Saturday morning and after roughly a dozen or more restarts I’ve uninstalled. I rely on my machine to restore from hibernate and sleep daily and SP1 admittedly broke that functionality. I had higher hopes. This was the shortest amount of time any Windows SP has lasted for me before hitting a problem that was worse than the original, about 15 hours. I tried numerous changes to my video settings to no avail and I don’t have time to mess around with a laptop that can’t “recover” from sleep. In a comment to this post Bill Meyer clued me in to the fact that this isn’t a new problem for Vista which doesn’t bode well when it comes to hoping for a fix. On a positive note, the uninstalled worked as advertised and I haven’t (yet) noticed any additional problems and sleep now works as it did before.
Any other MacBook Pro/Vista users experiencing this issue?
