I was a nontraditional student at the University of Kentucky. I just graduated but the economy is interfering with my career change. However, that means I'll have lots of time to pursue all the good ideas on SO!

comment LCD only turn on in hot weather
Is the weather outside cold but inside it's stable? Or is the monitor itself being subjected to these large temperature swings? The manufacturer's specifications will tell you whether the monitor is rated to work in the lower temperatures.

comment Logitech MX3200 keyboard stopped working
So what happened with this? I'm in pretty much the same boat. I didn't install any logitech drivers and everything just worked up until last night. I also use a KVM switch between a linux & windows XP box. The mouse works fine on both but the keyboard quit on both, even with new batteries. And the SetPoint software works only on windows. What did you end up doing to fix this?

comment How can I keep my keyboard clean?
@ Billy ONeal: then why your comment to my answer? "I'm not replacing my laptop over a keyboard." Sounds like you're being rather specific there.

Only by reading your comments to answers does one learn you are talking about a laptop, which changes the reasonable options you have.

comment How can I help a long-nailed person type?
Sure it's annoying to YOU to use because you can type quickly. The point is, does your mother find it more or less annoying than typing with a pencil? Also, while it's nice for you to help your mom out by serving as typist (and I'm a mom of a grown-up geek), she won't make the effort to learn to use the voice system or any other new thing until you stop helping her (so much). She raised you to be independent; now you can show her how well it works. =)

What have you tried? Have you tried right-clicking on the wireless indicator in the notification area, and looking for an option to not be notified?

I did check the plugs and they're fine. Also rebooted, just in case (hey, it's Windows).
