Hello everyone :-)

Well let me describe my system and then I will explain my problem.

Laptop Make/Model: Dell Inspiron 9400

Driver Version = 11/12/2007, (From INF file used for setup)

Operating System: Windows XP SP3

My current issue is that when i close the lid on my laptop, the screen stays on for a long while before turning off.

When I check the Power Options Properties (Advanced Tab) and look at the "When I close the lid on my portable computer" the only options I have are:

  • Do nothing
  • Stand by

If I check different options within Quickset, there is nothing about what to do when I close the lid.

I have done numerous searches within this Forum and Google and the only thing I can find is that since I am not using the Dell Drivers (dated 1/18/2006), the feature will not be available.

I cannot seem to get the upload attachment to work so I am linking to it instead: http://www.killq.net/LaptopVideo2Go_LogFile.txt.

Error Upload failed. Please ask the administrator to ensure the uploads directory is writeable

I have all BIOS updates and hardware driver updates, short of the Video Card drivers being a few months old.

I am going to attempt to update drivers to nVIDIA ForceWare X 176.53 but since I have written all this up I wanted to post it while I try to fail some more :)

Thanks for any possible assistance!
