If you have powered off (not suspended) and you can't power back on then 
it is a hardware problem If you can power on but not boot then we might 
be able to help. If you are suspending but can't resume then there might 
be help.

'It' the laptop or 'it' the network connection?

Are you talking about powering on the laptop, booting the laptop, or 
starting the network?

Hardware problems could cause anything but the fact that is only 
affecting a mail send makes it unlikely. It really sounds more like a 
configuration/settings issue. You are sending packets to request the 
incoming mail, so the machine can send packets.


To be or not to be, that is the question
                2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
        0b11000100 || !0b11000100
        0b11000100 || 0b00111011
        255, that is the answer.
