Hi Munro,

This isn't an ordinary laptop, and some of our deployment areas have very
expensive external DC power; from solar panels, cows, or a grid that
needs maintenance.  When we make a million laptops suspend like that
even though they are on external power, we save megawatts.

An ordinary laptop passes that burden to the consumer.  We're not really
wanting to do that here.  We have to think of the cost per child.
