Must be your system or something. I haven't encountered any decreases in anything.

Could be. Back too normal now without update (see edited post).

Hmm...I never had any copy/paste problems, but I'm liking the stuff about the video drivers and sleep. I hope this comes around soon.

The updates looks tempting. The fixed file transfers, video drivers, and sleep mode all look good. But with the x64 driver signing issue I'll have to hold off. Several of my drivers are unsigned beta and I don't like the idea of having to deal with f8 on every boot.

I'm torn on installing this. My install is pretty much rock solid, will this improve it or ruin it? Lol, not sure I want to find out.
