Parallels 4 Windows Vista keeps freezing and other problems (MacBook, Leopard)

    I am running 32 bit Vista in Parallels Desktop 4 on my MacBook (2 GB, 320 GB, Mac OS X 10.5.7, Parallels 4.0.3844).

    I have two problems with the setup.

    Whenever the MacBook sleeps and wakes up again, the guest OS in the windows (i.e. Vista) freezes and needs a hard reboot to come back again.

    And whenever Parallels is running the MacBook's fan comes on and remains on all the time until Parallels is shut down again.
