comment How can I save energy when using a notebook?
@Benedikt: Well, have fun with that but as far as your electricity bill is concerned, you wouldn't notice the difference if you were to stop using your laptop completely. It looks like your concern is money. If that's the case, you should consider that spending hours of your time to save 15cts of electricity per year is possibly not the best way to improve your financial situation.

Upvoted because it's a great tip, but saving energy on laptop while plugged in is a fool's errant.

comment How can I save energy when using a notebook?
I am downvoting this because, while everything you say is perfectly correct, the end result is a major hassle and it saves almost NO energy at all. The saving is insignificant. Doing what you recommend is like hunting down text files below 50kb on your computer and deleting them to "save space". In absolute terms, yes, you reduce the energy consumption. In practical terms, you are wasting your time and making life harder for yourself with no upside at all. If you were to turn off completely your laptop, I bet you wouldn't be able to spot the difference on your electricity bill.

@Hidden: No blank lines in the file. The original is very redundant, so I am unable to spot duplicate content without spending some serious time on it.

@Chris: I wish, but I have no clue either, it's in Latvian so it's pretty hard to figure out. All I know is that the first line and the last line of the file are identical in both the excel file and the text file. I can't post the content of the file because of the confidentiality agreement.

comment Keyboard sends “tab” characters after each key
Good idea. I will do that as soon as I get back home. It looks like a hardware issue: I have a dual boot with Linux. When the problem came back a few hours later, I tried on Linux and got the same problem.

comment Prevent Windows 7 from installing a “critical” updates that crashes the system
Thanks. unfortunately, I don't have any option to do that. I just realized that my problem was that Windows already considered the update to be installed and so there is no option to prevent the update from being installed (too late for that). On the other end, I was able to uninstall it and the changes will take effect next time I restart. I am too busy right now to restart and potentially deal with more problems, but I will try tonight and close the question if that solves the issue.
