Win 7 Bugs me

    First: I like Win 7. I am moving all machines to it and replacing older
    machines.
    Now the short version:
    I have Win 7 machines on a mix of Intel/AMD/desktop/laptop: I have yet to
    see one that will reliably complete the shutdown process if it has been in
    sleep mode for more than a few seconds. These are all high quality
    relatively new machines and a couple came preloaded with Win 7 so it is not
    an "upgrade" or older hardware issue. I have seen registry fixes posted on
    websites but these do not work.
    I have yet to see a Bluetooth enabled laptop that does not drop the
    connection to Microsoft's own Bluetooth mouse frequently when reactivated
    from sleep. I gave up using the bluetooth mouse on the laptop I most
    frequently use because of this.
    If Windows Explorer is not opened in a sufficiently large window the
    highlighted file selection will jump randomly to a different selection. I
    thought this was an aberration in the RC but it persists in the commercial
    release.
    CD/DVDs cannot be reliably ejected from any machine using the button on the
    drive, whether a newly burned disc or a commercial optical disc. Usually,
    but always, the software eject in Windows Explorer has to be used. In my
    experience this is a universal Win 7-64 annoyance.
    I cannot be the only user seeing these oddities in Microsoft's latest and
    greatest.

    At least two of the problems you have were also sometimes present in various
    earlier windows vesions.
    One you did not mention is network cards not responding after sleep.
    Most of the problems actually end up as a result of BIOS, Hardware, or third
    party drivers.
    Sadly, one of the worst offenders was a chip mfr/oem that is still very
    commonly used as a source of support chips.

    I converted my desktop and laptop to Win7 and the only issue you have that
    I've experienced is the jumping around when using Windows Explorer. Never
    saw that problem until Win7 and I don't know if it's a setting or just a
    quirk. Only inconvenience it's caused me is to go slow when handling files
    so I don't get them in the wrong folder or delete the wrong one.
