    IBM-T61 Laptop

    Hi everyone,i need help. There is somthing wrong with my IBM-T61 Laptop. I used to click Fn+F4 to make it sleeping and press any key to wake it up. But w when I wake it up by clicking some key,the screen is still being dark even i can hear the hard drive starts operating. I have to force shutdown it each time, and restart it. Has any of you meet the same problem? any suggestions for me? Due to it's out of warranty...just for help, cheers

    Go to and download the bios update for you laptop. I have a T61p that used to have the same exact problem, but I flashed the bios from their website and it fixed it. If you look at the bottom of the laptop you can see what specific model it is (4-digit number) having that handy will make finding your machine on their website much easier.

    Just out of curiosity, how do you plan to make your laptop power on when you turn the car on?

    I have a T41 that I couldn't get Webmaster's turn-on unit to interface with, and I'm about to give it to my GF if I can't find a way to make it work.
