Yes they are. The bios on the ASUS motherboard is the most reliable.
There was a newer "beta" version that never became official and was less
reliable. Since I run multiple OSes (Including PCBSD 7 AMD64) on the
desktop, stability is important.
I will try the latest BIOS version on the Netbook, but the problem is so
similar on both that I really think it's an X-windows issue. The PCBSD
session terminates. but there is a disconnect and the X-window server
session does not go away as it should.
