from what I found, Vista needs some ACPI-values in the Bios for c'n'q to
work properly. The same happened on my MSI K9N Neo: I can use c'n'q
under XP, but the settings are not visible under Vista. The manufacturer
will implement the required tables with the next Bios release, and I
could get my hands on a beta-version which offers working c'n'q - the
settings are available in every power scheme and can be edited to suit
your needs. Unfortunately, the beta was not that stable overall, and I
have gone back to stable 1.5, wasting energy until version 1.6 arrives
One thing to be aware of: I have experienced that repeated flashing of
new bios releases will cause the need to re-activate your copy of Vista,
thus you should not test every available beta from your manufacturer.
