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.
