>My reply of "Well why are you being employed and paid so much when you can't work out that the problem is always you not switching your laptop off" did not go down well at all.
SP: OS' have sleep/hibernate for a reason, that is, to not have to shut down the computer completely. Anything causing you to reboot that is not a kernel update is faulty design.
LP: Blaming HER for MS Windows ecosystem faults is a bit harsh, mate ... I remember back in the naughties, when I had OS X ... I kept the thing "on" (on or sleep) for months, same later with Linux, then I switched to 7 and rebooted more often the first day than I had it over the previous ten years (well, ok, but not that far off ) ... moved to Linux again, after giving Windows 7 a whopping 6 months to settle, you know, give it its chance ... and another 5 years where I probably rebooted Linux, what, 15 times, tops ... and I think I am being generous, here ... now Windows ten is better in that respect, however, still have to reboot at the very least weekly ... at least not x times daily as with Windows 7 (Windows 7 which was shipped on the thing had a driver issue, clean reinstall (MS-provided ISO) did not help, never fixed by HP, same box later had Linux, no problems, as usual).
Windows 7 lovers, you know where downvote button is, right ?
