I have a big Sony laptop with winXT and Ubuntu Gutsy working just
great. But the computer is not happy with closing the lid. It goes into
a strange mode I can't get out of either with winXT or Gutsy.
So I have learned to turn off the computer before closing up the
laptop. Takes a minute more but it is fine with me.
