W7 and Sleep with an HP Probook

As shipped the HP Probook can take too long to wake from “Sleep”.

I found this post on MS Technet and have applied the advice to the WIFI adaptor. I found it using this google query.

I have tested it using the [fn] and [moon] button and it seems to work fine. I need to test it over a longer period but it may be safe to reconfigure the power management config to “Sleep on Lid Close” which should make using the laptop on a train commute feasible.

My laptop is an HP Probook 5320m.
