View Full Version : PB 12": Sleep while changing Batteries?

Sep 1, 2004, 06:08 AM

i've read somewhere in this forum that the PB 12" 1.33 should be able to stay in sleep-mode for at least a minute while its battery is being changed. (That was one of the reasons why I bought it)
I tried that several times unsucessfully, it just won't wake up again and i need to turn it on.
Weeks ago I thought it took me just a moment too long because of me being clumsy, but now it only took me 10 seconds to swap those batteries, and still - it needs to boot!

Am I somewhat misinformed, and this is normal behaviour, or is there some special sleep-modus I have to enter in order to keep it sleeping and not shutting off while changing the accu., or is that an indication that the internal battery is broken?

thanks a lot,
