I have a Sony Vaio (FZ290), and I'm pretty happy with it in general. There are 2 problems however: 1) When I try and put it into standby, about half the time it doesn't go into standby, just turns off the screen, and keeps everything else on. The lights on the front indicate that it is still on, but the screen stays blank no matter what I do. I've waited for 30 minutes for it to go into standby before cutting the power manually with the button... 2) When I do get it into standby, about half the time on resume from standby, explorer.exe crashes. I'm not sure why, but it's bloody annoying. It starts back up, however it is still annoying to have it doing that... I am running Windows Vista Ultimate. I do not have SP1 yet, but I will be trying that today.
