    Hi,

    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,
    aldous

    sorry, I've just seen that this topic has been discussed in this thread just four days ago..

    well, that's sad :(
    how come it works for some and for some not?
