One month with Vista SP1 - One hickup: mobile device not recognized

So I have been using Vista SP1 for a month now and have yet to run into any major issues. I get the impression memory usage has been slightly improved, but apart from that I did not notice any improvements or degradations. Same old Vista to me. :)

One minor issue I ran into: My IPaq failed to get recognized. This manifested itself when I woke up the PC from standby mode. The screen came up, the cursor was blinking, but the mouse and keyboard were unresponsive for over a minute. THAT had never happened before. As a matter of fact, it seems that my keyboard is recognized quicker when waking up from standby with SP1. I should have taken hard measurements, before & after, too late now! But I digress, back to the main issue... Once my peripherals were finally online I noticed synchronization with my IPaq was not happening anymore, even worse, there was no IPaq! Removing and reinserting it in the cradle did not help either. Performing a soft-reset on the IPaq fixed the issue and it has not occurred since.

On that note... Today, Microsoft announced they are beginning automatic distribution of SP1 in English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese.
