Love Win 7

There's one huge improvements to Win 7 (over Vista) that I absolutely love and can't live without - it's something very small but somehow, Vista couldn't get it running.

I usually put my PC to sleep in Vista so that when I wake up the PC, it takes 3 seconds for me to log in and get back my desktop. Pretty fast. The problem? My wi-fi card is dead. It doesn't wake up. I have to wait for 10 minutes before it finally makes up its mind and connects to my router. Or, I have to restart my Windows. If I have to restart Windows, why do I need to put it to sleep mode in the first place? (note: didn't happen to the laptop so it definitely is not due to my router)

Vista SP2 is said to fix this issue but it didn't.

Somehow, this problem went away in Windows 7! Hooray!! Now my PC experience has improved tremendously! I could just power up, checked my email and put it to sleep.. within minutes!

Edit: Turns out it is a feature of Win 7 that MS is tauting!
