8/30/2010 5:46:06 PM the computer is a laptop that will not "wake up" when it is closed or left for a long period of time. It is also taking longer to boot up after these periods. We end up having to completely reboot the system to recover from those incidents, and I am concerned it is leading to improper shutdowns and system dumps.

4/22/2010 7:55:25 PM It sends the emails while I am still typing them. I can be typing and before I know it my new sentence shows up where ever my cursor was last, usally in the middle of another sentance. It clicks on things by itself. something is constantly opening and closing in my task bar which makes it very hard to click on the right thing because everything is always moving. my mcafee is always shut down due to some unfixable problem so my computer is not protected

11/12/2010 11:10:42 PM I have had problems with the cursor on this computer ever since I bought it...I have complained repeatedly to Dell & finally they sent someone to replace it, but it still locks up & at times is very hard to control & this morning when I turned it on it got as far as the screen with Dell in large letters on it and wouldn't go any farther until I unplugged everything, took out the battery and waited a while before restarting it...then it loaded....but the cursor still locks up a lot which is especially irritating when you are playing a timed one minute game and the cursor won't work when you click it....
