You'll never guess what you can do once you steal a laptop, reflash the BIOS, and reboot it

Re: Again,

"How many people turn their machine off?"

I do. Or rather I don't use any sleep or hibernation modes in anything. On the other hand, I don't like laptops much, but I do use a couple that belong to others regularly, and I turn them off when I'm done.

I'm wondering why they didn't tell Linux and BSD people about this, only Apple, Intel, and Microsoft? Even AMD was left out in the cold (pun intended). Of those couple of laptops I mentioned, one is Linux only, the other dual boots Linux and Windows.
