Re: Shutting down problem!

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
