    I installed W8 CP yesterday through Bootcamp and USB, and everything works as it should except from one thing:
    When I close the lid and/or put the computer to sleep, it doesnt wake up again when I open lid.
    I have to hold the powerbutton down for many seconds (5-6) before it eventually boots up again from "scratch".

    Anyone have any idea why?

    It's still beta, you're bound to find bugs.

    Hey.

    Obviously there will be bugs in a beta, but thats why I am asking here - to figure out why it happens.
    Perhaps someone knows what causes this, and it will then help other people with similar problems.
    Isnt that the whole purpose of a forum, Ayeying?

    I reinstalled W8, but this time I used the Windows USB tool, instead of using bootcamp to make the usb boot stick.
    Now it works just fine. :)

    I did what it said in my post. :)
    "I reinstalled W8, but this time I used the Windows USB tool, instead of using bootcamp to make the usb boot stick."
    In addition I used local account instead of live-account during the setup of win8.
