I have Windows 8,
dual core 2.8 ghz intel, 8gb ram.
I use a Wacom Bamboo splash tablet (ctl 471).
I have installed the latest windows 8 drivers from Wacom.
When my computer wakes from sleep mode, the tablet no longer functions.
I have to reboot the computer to get it to work.
This kind of defeats the whole purpose of sleep mode.
