Windows 7 - Lenovo N500 Power manager

There is another post on this topic but it is about a year old with no answer. I have a Lenovo 3000 N500 series laptop and I recently tested Windows 7 64-bit on it and found that there aren't any drivers for win7 on the Lenovo support page. Specifically drivers for the power manager feature which unfortunately results in the laptop not being able to hibernate or sleep properly. Basically when I close the laptop it shuts off completely, alternatively I can set it to stay on completely but there is no inbetween which is kind of frustrating. Is there a plan to issue a win7 driver for this or is support no longer offered? If not is there a win7 driver for another model that would work well enough? Thanks for any help.

OneUp7,

You can find Windows 7 ThinkVantage programs here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-61432

It lists Power Manager for Windows 7.
