comment WRT54g router with DD-WRT firmware
@xLRDxREVENGEx It's OK, I should have worded it better :) Anyway, the ports labelled 1 to 4 are the router ports. That means that the router is sharing the internet connection on all four of those ports. So any computer that you connect to any four of those ports should connect straight away to the internet. Is this what you have tried? Does it work?

@xLRDxREVENGEx Sorry, by how is it pluged in I meant what port is it (the first computer) connected to? There should be one port labelled 'Internet' and four others labelled from 1 to 4.

comment How can I identify which application is responsible for my battery life being short?
How much shorter is 'much shorter'? If you're getting 4 or 5 hours, that is probably average, if you're getting less than 2 there's probably an issue. Also, what Macbook do you have? They all have different lengths of advertised battery life.

comment mirror monitors with split screen?
What software are you using to show your presentation? It will be easier to give specific answers if we know what you are working with.

While that is a very concise answer, he specifically mentions that he is not using PowerPoint to make his presentation.

comment How to stop windows resizing when the monitor display channel is turned off / switched to different source
Also, the graphics card in my laptop is an ATI card (ATI Radeon HD 4530), so it is using the same 'ATI Catlyst Control Center' (Specifically version 2010.0706.2128.36662 for reference) software that I imagine is being used for the card in question.

comment How to stop windows resizing when the monitor display channel is turned off / switched to different source
I have a similar setup, with my laptop connected via HDMI to my Sony TV. However, when I switch inputs, or even turn off the TV, upon returning to the laptop input everything is exactly as I left it. Windows remain maximised and covering the whole desktop, sidebar gadgets stay the same and desktop icons are where I left them. This makes me think it is not an issue with Windows, and instead either the way it is set up (Hardware or Drivers), or something funny with the way the TV handshakes on HDMI.

comment upgrade wmplayer to a version of my choice?
Is there any practical reason why you want to do this? The changes between these versions will be extremely negligible, consisting of maybe a few small bugfixes at best.

comment Can I stop windows 7 from fading windows on alt-tab?
Also, if you would rather Windows 7 used the old alt-tab functionality, see the top answer from here: superuser.com/questions/37067/…

comment Can I stop windows 7 from fading windows on alt-tab?
This is not true. It is possible to (effectively) disable just the alt-tab functionality without loosing the whole aero effect. Please read and vote up the post by @Tall Jeff, who has provided a better answer.

comment Align a PowerPoint presentation (non-standard resolution) to the top of the screen when presenting
@Justin Pearce It's not really the position of the content that is the problem, it's the position of the whole slide itself. You can change the dimentions of the whole slideshow by going to Design > Page Setup. Using the Slide Master to do this does the same thing. The problem is that the presentation is narrower than the screen, much like a film where you get letterboxing. I want to move the presentation from the middle of the screen, to the top, with all the black space just on the bottom. I can post a picture if it makes it easier to visualise?

What happens if you turn it back on? Does it shutdown again, or stay on? Also, what version of Windows is on it?
