The IBM Saga Continues, again.

Laptop arrived today from IBM repair in Memphis.

Put in my production Linux drive, powered it up, logged in, and it powered off on me again without warning about 8 minutes later.

Closer inspection of the included notes with the returned unit show a mention of:

“Unit was sent back as ‘No problem found’..”

The random power-off happens while exclusivly using AC (No battery) as well as exclusive DC (not plugged in). Problem doesn’t appear to be adapter or battery-related.

It’s going back to IBM tomorrow.

This is putting a serious dent in my productivity.
