will do, thanks.
However, here is some new info.
I have selected 'never hybernate'. But when I close the lid and open it again, it doesn't even acknowledge the USB ports. Whatever you plug, it doesn't find.
Plus, it burns through batteries like never before. With suplementary batteries, it gets ~3hrs, before 6hrs.
Sometimes, when I have no USB alive, I close all programs, preparing to reboot, and then mysteriously, after I close some program (last time, it was opera) it will go straight into hybernation mode!
So my hypothesis is that there is a program that is doing something strange, that interferes with the command for going to hybernation. It could well be opera.
I have noticed that opera had one of these Download pages where it is expecting you to say 'save'... maybe that was it. Will report any new progress
