Hi Chris,

Great news letter as always.


Only need to comment on the putting your computer to sleep many of our coworkers use docking stations at work if they put the computer to sleep carry it to work or just back to there office and pop it into the docking station the computer will not wake up.

You have to remove it from the docking station wake it up shut it down then return it to the docking station.

 For this reason our IT wizard does not recommend setting sleep mode on lid close if you use a docking station.

This note might save some one a panic attack thinking the computer broken.

We have also seen battery failure lap top batteries do not like deep cycle be sure and watch the power option settings on battery.

Keep up the good work. Cool
