The Fn+F11 is good to know.....Thanks DarqHelmet, and Cornerbck35! That puts out my concern about running down the battery all the time while the laptop is constantly running the wifi. So tell me Cornerbck35, are you ok with 2-2.5 hours battery life? I'm not into gaming, but I am a power user when it comes to audio, video, and image editing. It would kill me to spend $900-$1200 on a laptop that gets no better battery life than the my 6 year old Compaq Armada e500. After I got the Armada brand new, I swaped out the floppy drive and put 2nd battery in that now open bay to increase my overall running time. It went from 2-3hrs to at least 6hrs easy! This made that Armada a rock-solid performer even if it only had a 500Mhz Celeron, and 768mb of RAM.....ha ha! The Dell Insprion e1405 with a 9cell battery, and 5-6hrs (as eminem3150 say's) of battery life is a very attractive feature.
