Could OLPC please go work for Microsoft, Lenovo, or anyone else in the
Windows world, because this level of do-the-right-thing seems to be
beyond them. The happy joy of combining standby/shutdown, lid actions,
and docking/undocking is playing Russian Roulette in slooooow motion
in the Twilight Zone. Witness the legions of undead clutching
half-opened laptops as they shuffle around, or frantically plugging in
at the start of the next meeting to find out from which frozen circle
of hell their laptop is ascending.

:-) Thanks for all you do.
