A downward turn...  
Now that I have saved up some money to enjoy myself in Puerto Rico, I hit the on button on my laptop... and nothing happens. Not even a "powering up" sound.

Current Location: Martin's Computer
Current Mood: aggravatedaggravated

While I gotcha, think you can swing by sometime Thursday so I can give you the keys/complete lowdown?

Krystal has to unplug and batteryEctomize her laptop fairly often due to locking up, often on shutdown... did you try that?

Possibly, can you be more specific? I removed the battery and put it back in. It's always plugged into the wall, though. We also tried Martin's power supply and that didn't fix it.

I REALLY need to check things while in PR. The timing on this bites.

Hers just locks up and won't even power-off... she has to remove the battery _and_ unplug the wall adapter to get it to turn off. When she puts the battery and adapter back in it restarts just fine, but this happens a lot... (soooo glad I have a mac...)

Where would you take yours to get looked at, anyway? Krystal has a good place she goes to...

We're gonna easter-egg first, since Martin has the same one, and see if we can find the problem that way. Thanks for reminding me, though, we need to do that tonight.

Have a big hug from me. Computers like to be inconvenient.

I want you to try and do me a HUGE favour while you're in PR. Live in the moment. If you catch yourself thinking about your worries back home, or what you're going to do after you get back... have a mai tai, go sit on the beach. Let PR time be PR time, and don't let anything take away from your vacation. Please?
