I know I'm coming to this a little late, but I have experienced this exact same issue consistently in almost any software / power scenario since I received my W700ds in March.
I also have the Quadro 3700, however I'm running Vista Business 64 SP2 with all available updates from the Lenovo site. The big difference though is that I opted for the plain vanilla DVD-R/W drive, but still experience the strange drive seeking sound (when not in use) whenever the screen dies.
Did you ever resolve your issue? I'm desperate for a solution.

It would not surprise me if it is all an issue with the Matrix drivers from Intel ... see earliest posts and communications.
Yes we have many aspects in common so I will only note differences from your most recent posts.
Same CPU but 8 GB RAM, two 320 GB 7200RPM HDD not in raid configuration, express card with CF reader.
I've been away a fair bit so have not been on the forum much and certainly haven't used Lenovo update board. I guess I should really do that and then call Tech Support to register another Support Ticket.
I do a fair amount of CS4 pp work. I keep getting the Update your Graphics Card Acceleration message, but it is up to date. Do you get that message? From a quick glance at other board postings it seems that the Open GL is also in play for workstation GPUs.

I'll let you know when I log a Support Ticket, however it is unlikely this week as I have 5 Grandchildren to care for this week with my spouse and no parents.
