I just did a clean instal of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit onto my machine.  Near flawless install, with no real issues and very stable.  The only glitch is that there is one system device which Windows 7 doesn't recognize (Vista did). I get the little flag icon in my task bar that says "solve a problem with away mode system."  Here is the exact text:

"Address a problem with Away Mode System

This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between your computer's Away Mode System and your 64-bit version of Windows. The Away Mode System is only compatible with 32-bit versions of Windows.

This problem is not critical, but you can prevent it from occurring again by disabling the Away Mode System in your computer's BIOS. Refer to the instructions that came with your computer that explain how to access the BIOS and turn off Away Mode System support. "

------------>anybody know what this is? Doesn't seem to affect my system in anyway, Win 7 is running great.  Any ideas?

My system:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4800+ (2.5Ghz)
GeForce GT220 1GB DDR3 PCIe
Stock Audio
RAID 0 300GB
Windows Experience Index: 5.4

Hi there =) the reason why your getting that "Away Mode" message is because you probbably have AMD Live Enabled on the BIOS, check under the chipset features to see if it's enabled, if it is disable it ... that fixed it for me

My System:

AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition (2.3 Ghz each core)
2 Gb of RAM DDR2 800
GeForce 9600 GT 512 MB DDR3 PCI-E
Windows 7 Professional Edition, Windows Experience Index: 5.5

Bump. OK, disabling AMD Live! will eliminate the error, but, are there any drivers out there to fix the compatibility problem? I liked "Away Mode" on 32-bit Vista and miss it now that I've switched to 64-Bit Windows 7.

*BUMP* *BUMP* *BUMP* Is there even an attempt by Asus at coding a 64bit "AMD Live!" driver for Win7?? What's really preventing this? Arn't we paying for the functionality when purchasing hardware, and by proxy, it's driver development??? How about releasing the source?
