Yes, but remember everything is smaller and more stressed in a notebook.

Fans, in particular.

I keep my notebook on most of the time. I just close the lid and it goes to sleep or hibernation. Or stand by.

You might want to restart every once in a while to clean the cobwebs out. Clean out your cache, cookies, run scan disk and some maintainance programs, virus scans, spybot, etc.

Maybe even do a cold boot once in a while. Take it out to dinner or Starbucks every once in a while. Feed it.

Gary knows that even laptops need love, too.

The last time I took my laptop out to dinner though, it chose clams, and it got very messy. My date wasn't impressed either.

In fact, I never saw her again after that.

No loss, my laptop runs hotter than she ever did.

I'd rather have a hot woman than a hot laptop. Or a lap with a hot woman. Actually, at this point, almost any woman would do.

Or some of the famous pink clams.

Ah gee, I didn't know that. Might be too late for me.

Thanks for the tip.
