RE: Shutting down problem!

I've found that sometimes when preparing to close the laptop, and arrowing
among the choices -- Sleep / ShutDown / ReStart -- JAWS occasionally speaks
a different label than the currently selected choice.
So, I arrow back and forth a time or two before hitting enter to confirm
which selection is going to be activated.

Dave,
 
This doesn't answer Brandon's question, as he has just explained, but here's
something I do when XP won't close down. I assume there's an equivalent
procedure in Windows 7.
 
I'm sure you've seen the message to the effect that if you close a program
now, you may lose all your data. One choice you're given is to close anyway,
which you do by pressing alt-e.
 
Sometimes when my computer won't shut down, I'm given no indication why.
Even though the choices aren't shown on the screen, I'll press alt-e. It
works almost every time.
 
I believe Outlook 2003 is the culprit.

Brandon,
 
No idea what to suggest. It may be that there is an application running or a
process running that does not respond to the normal shutdown command and
either continues to run or forces a complete shutoff.
 
I've cooked my laptop more than once in my backpack when I thought it had
shut down, but was still running. They get extremely hot if they don't have
ventilation. I always check now at the air vents to make sure there is
nothing running before putting into the backpack.

Now that is weird. It used to happen to me with win XP. I used to it
shutdown button to turn my computer off and for some weird reason my
computer turned itself on back again. Never could find a solution though.

I tried that, but every few times when I'd click hibernate it would restart
rather than hibernate. Thanks,

Brandon,
 
I recommend you start using standby or hibernate mode before closing the
cover.

Hello, I'm not sure what's going on: About 1 out of every 5 times I close my
laptop it shuts down. I'm not sure if windows is installing an update or
what, but it gets super super annoying, especially when I have 5 or 6
programs up at once and I need to restart them all. And because I'm in
school I have to close my lap-top at least 5 times a day. This has always
happened and I'm not sure how to fix it. I changed the option to hibernate
when the lid gets shut rather than go to sleep, but that only decreased the
shutting down from 1 every 3 times to 1 every 5 times and increased the time
I need to wait for my computer to start up. I'm not sure if there is
something that says it will shut down when I close my lid or what? Any help
would be really appreciated! Thank you,
 
Brandon Keith
