comment BIOS continuously pressing a key internally filling keyboard buffer
@DragonLord, so is there any way to disable the laptop internal key and just use my USB keyboard? I'm having the exact same problem as the guy above.

comment What does the computer have to do to move some files around?
@krowe, It's relative and depends on what you are doing. Drawing 1000 pixels per second is extremely slow.

Hibernating takes much longer than just sleeping though.

comment Is shaking an SSD in a laptop bad?
Besides the SSD, Do you mean that we can use the laptop upside down, or on a roller coaster, or a 360, and there would be no problems with it?

comment Windows shows “Limited Connection” when it isn't
@Chris_K, Uninstall everything and see if that works. If so, install 50% of apps back. If good, install another 25%, if bad, uninstall another 25%, then repeat the half of half of half checks. Even if you got a thousand apps, it would only take ~10 checks (lg1000/lg2) to find the culprit: 1000, 500, 250, 125, 63, 32, 16, 8, 4, 2, 1
