I was afraid that this would be the case. I have no immediate experience 
with netbooks but plenty with the ordinary laptop/notebook type devices. 
Taking these *things* apart is a bit frightening. I'm glad you got 
through it with just a few scrapes to show for your courage.

There has just gotta be some setting in the BIOS that would let you 
either hibernate or "sleep" your machine. G-d knows how you would ever 
find this however.

I respect your oath above. I've  uttered several things in this nature 
myself. Thanks for reporting back Dave.
