comment Lenvo B450 won't boot on battery only?
1.5h to nothing sure is a big gap... It would seem more probable that something broke. Costs nothing to ask for applying the warranty to this.

comment Lenvo B450 won't boot on battery only?
Editorial note: that's pretty smart to make laptop to behave like that. I didn't buy a second battery for my 5-6 year old laptop which still has enough power to sleep for a day (or run for 10 minutes...).

comment Laptop turns on spontaneously
For the record, my laptop turns ON on its own because of a setting that makes it go from sleep to hibernation after X hours of sleep. Creepy when it wakes you up. Probably not your problem, though, since it would be still asleep/hibernating afterwards.

comment Will microwaving a flash drive destroy the data on it?
OK, that was a messy explanation, but I hope you get the idea. When you have a huge (for the small material) forced release of electrons, you get some impressive electrical current going on and afterwards notice the damages on the material (memory doesn't work anymore because everything burned/melted inside).

comment Will microwaving a flash drive destroy the data on it?
It has to do with electromagnetic (EM) waves effects on electrons. The EM waves make the electrons move according to its current polarity at any given place and time. When you have a spiky shape (like a wire, like logical gates), and that an EM wave affects its content of electrons, you can safely assume that, depending on the orientation of the waves (and probably many other things), at some point the wave will push a lot too many electron on the spike surface for it to be able to hold them all. At that point you have a jump of electrons from the spike to anything it can reach.

comment Single-user, multiple-computer versioning system
@user001: Extra security is a relative matter when it comes to the cloud. If you have any sensitive data, unless it is state-of-the-art encrypted, forget the cloud.

@JourneymanGeek: Dropbox isn't too good at version control... If you're dealing with any kind of textual and changing data, you absolutely want version control.
