    Wow. I stopped using my computer last night at around midnight or so, and left it beside my bed. I was so tired I forgot to put it to sleep. Right now I have the forest screen saver going. It's now 8:12 in the morning and the screen saver was still running with 14 minutes left on battery life. I left it with about 2 hours of life when I went to sleep. I have sleep turned off for all you doubters :) It turns on only when I close the lid.

    How cool is that?

    I'm gREEN with envy. The longest my Sophie has been able to run on batteries is something like 3:40, with very light use. No folding or Deeveedee watching, or screensavers running...
