Windows 7 beta on the Amilo Ui 3520 experiences

I have installed Windows 7 on it and it works with the Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Ui 3520. The drivers that I had to reinstall because Windows 7 did not know that they were missing:

Synaptics touchpad drivers (just pick the Vista one form theilr website)
Hotkey Driver (for the Fn keys, they work perfectly)
Throttle Utility (to lower the fan noise, although I do not see a big difference, it is still very loud)

Everything else that was in the system was recognized by Windows 7. The WiFi Atheros worked straight out of the box and the Bluetooth stack was installed as soon as I activated it.

What I found out after installing the Synaptics driver: the mouse did work differently, i.e. I was not able to go from the left to the right edge of the screen with one normal speed stroke on the touchpad. This was better without the Synaptics but I wanted the scrolling feature back so I will have to live with it.

Ah yes and the Sleep mode does not work. It puts the netbook in sleep mode, but no key on the notebook was able to wake the computer up. I had to hold the power button for 5 seconds and after power on, the computer still did not boot. I had to turn off the computer completely again to get things going. That was kind of odd. I do not know why the sleep and wake up did not work.
