Hi,

I have a user in work running Windoes XP who has an IBM Thinkpad that does not like running on battery, I think it is a policy or similar, but could be a hardware issue also.

The laptop works on battery if an external monitor is plugged in, but take the monitor out and the machine goes into hibernation/standby.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks
