    I have Vista Business Edition on an IBM ThinkPad (X-series). No special
    software besides the usual: MS Office 2007 (incl OneNote), Firefox, WinAmp,
    Acrobat Reader. Plus the IBM ThinkVantage options for Tablet PC, Fingerprint
    Reader, Tablet Menu Shortuct.

    Vista is updated as of yesterday (Apr 3, 2007) with all Windows Update
    patches. This problem, however, has been going on for the past month.

    Whenever I return from Sleep (either by lifting the lid, or pressing the
    power button), it prompts me to unlock via username/password or fingerprint.
    After the first restore-from-Sleep, it automatically goes back to Sleep. I
    must re-press the power button and re-enter my username/password or
    fingerprint a "second" time. ONLY THEN does it return successfully from

    Also, in the mix of this situation, my network connection options may or may
    not work -- without unplugging the network cable, or without changing the
    wireless configuration. YES, this problems also occurs when Wireless is

    Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
