According to Wikipedia (emphasis mine): The basis for this otherwise odd seeming resolution is similar to that of other "wide" standards – the line scan (refresh) rate of the well-established "XGA" standard (1024x768 pixels, 4:3 aspect) extended to give square pixels on the increasingly popular 16:9 widescreen display ratio without having to ...

At the time the first computer wide screens became popular, the usual resolution on 4:3 panels was 1024x768 (XGA display standard). So, for simplicity and backward compatibility, the XGA resolution was kept as a basis to make the WXGA resolution, so that XGA graphics could be displayed easily on WXGA screens. Just extending the width and keeping the same ...

768 is the sum of two powers of 2 (512+128), and 1366 is 16/9 times 768, rounded up to the next integer. But only the person who selected that resolution can answer the "why". Some people just like powers of 2. Also, 768 times 1366 is just over one Mebipixel (2^20), which is about 1.04 Megabytes (1.04 * 10^6). 768 times 1365 is just under that, so ...

Li-ion batteries tend to deteriorate faster if left 100% charged (and of course may be ruined by complete discharging). "Overcharge up to 5.2 volts leads to the synthesis of cobalt(IV) oxide... The cobalt electrode reaction is only reversible for x < 0.5, limiting the depth of discharge allowable." Also, when left fully charged, the lithium ions, ...

I've solved the issue by adding a "ScanWhenAssociated" key in the registry that disables background scans when you are connected to a network. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4d36e972-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318} Next, locate the children path that has the correct AdapterModel. In that path, create a new REG_DWORD key ...
