I just bought the G70-250US... my first notebook ever after 15 years of computing. The very first thing I did (after creating recovery discs of course) was format the drive and put Win7 RC1 (x64) on it. It runs great now and I have no HP bloatware. I got all the latest drivers from HP and Intel.
99% of the time the sleep and wakeup work fine. However, I have noticed if I close the lid and let it sleep for a long time (8+ hours, while I myself and ALSO sleeping), that when I open the lid to wake it in the morning, it will appear to wake up, but the display will remain blank, and I will need to force it asleep a 2nd time (through power button or lid) and then wake it a second time, and then it will function fine, display and all.
Is this a known issue, or is it perhaps just a compatibility issue with Win7? Does it happen in Vista? I can't really check since I wiped Vista off so fast. :-)

One more thing I noticed... when waking up after a long sleep, it briefly displays the HP logo and then the Windows resume screen... and THEN the screen goes black and will not come back unless I sleep it a second time. So it almost seems to be a display driver issue, maybe?
EDIT: Incidentally, Windows update just found a display driver update released yesterday. We'll see if that fixes it...
