Having problems with your Dell Precision M70 Notebook ?

The computer ignores the Power Management settings and shuts down when I close the lid. This laptop was supposedly refurbished by DELL. They loaded the BIOS for a Latitude D810 (same motherboard as the M70, I'm told). Also, when the laptop is docked, it will not boot up (probably because the lid is closed).


Answers :

The Windows power management function seems to be very particular as to the system in which is is installed; I have seen similar uncorrectable glitches on a variety of systems and while the 'Hibernate' worked fine on our system for an extended time, it has since stopped working and refuses to come out of hibernation now.\015\012Frankly, it seems just one more of those annoying MicroSoft 'things.'
