600 series cards suffer from power saving problems? -

I have 2x 7970's and one of the major failings of the cards is the power saving technology AMD uses. In some games the crossfire never kicks in and the second card fails to wake up. I just found out in Windows (2D!) that the power saving is kicking me in the ass and causing graphical performance problems.
AMD isn't going to fix these problems, they have had poor power saving capability and wake up since the 4000 series of cards.
Do NVidia cards suffer from power saving sluggishness and oddness as well or is it completely transparent? How much control does NVidia give you over a pair of SLI cards in terms of power saving (such that if it did cause problems you can turn it off)?
