Slashdot writer mourns sudden passing of IBM Thinkpad T20

Until he does he won’t be able to auction off the slumbering notebook on ebay.

Cliff says – “… wary of putting your Thinkpad into a hibernate/sleep state and leaving it connected to AC power. A cursory web search has revealed a smattering of threads detailing the illness. First it won’t come out of hibernation and then it simply won’t boot at all. Has anyone else run into this problem with their Thinkpad laptop?….”
