Apparently, although my computer can only survive for five minutes without the power adaptor before going into a forced sleep, it can survive for over three days once it enters sleep mode.

I decided to try a little experiment and run the battery completely down before charging it back up, to see if somehow, somewhere, a memory setting got messed up, making the computer think it had less battery power than it really did. And I’m beginning to think that maybe I was right, although I don’t know if I have managed to fix it or not.

You see, I wasn’t quite able to run the battery completely down. I started my little test on Sunday, and the computer quickly dropped into a deep sleep. But after three days of seeing that little blinking light taunting me, with no end in sight, I succumbed to my internet withdrawal and took it out of it’s exile.

I think it might be playing games with me.
