Hello James:


Go to control panel and look for power options.


Then go to the advanced tab. You should see "When I close the lid of my
portable computer: "  select do nothing.

Then   hit OK.

Subject: Skype On Notebook and using Skype as mobile phone source


Hello List!


I have lots of friends who use Skype and I stay in contact with them a lot
during the day.  I have had trouble trying to get Skype for Pocket PVC to
work (never getting it to contact or work at all), so I take my notebook to
work sometimes and use it and my Verizon wireless card to connect to the
internet.  The problem is, I have to keep the notebook open while I am using
it.  I was wondering if there is a way to use a notebook with the top closed
and locked while you are riding the bus and connect to cell phones, house
phones, and skype/MSN/Yahoo while riding the bus; also answering calls this
way as well.  I don't want to have to open notebook on the bus or plane.  I
was just thinking that it could work pretty good and save me some money when
making calls to U.S. and Canada telephone-wise and skype to skype PC-to-PC
contacts.  I guess I just want a notebook cellphone and be able to use skype
on the go.  


Oh by the way, I am using Code Factory's Mobile Speak Pocket on a Cingular
8525 PDA that I had Skype Pocket installed on, but had to uninstall because
I never got it to work.  Then when I got my Toshiba, which I love, I figured
it might be a way to do it with this notebook.  The toshiba is a little big
to carry around, but I can carry it in a bag on my shoulder and interact
with it via some kind of wireless keyboard or notetaker (Impower or Pac Mate
or something).  


Am I whistling dixie or can this be done.
