I recently purchased a Compal HEL80 notebook. I have found only one problem with the unit and it is rather bothersome. I have set the "When I close the lid of my portable computer" option in the Power Options Properties -> Advanced menu to the "Do nothing" option. When I close the lid for more than a few seconds and reopen the lid the lcd does not always return back on. I can move the mouse, type on the keyboard, and/or do just about anything else and it still does not turn on. However, if I close the lid all the way again and then open it again it will sometimes come on and if I do it several times it always comes back on eventually. I am using all of the stock drivers and I have flashed the bios to the latest 112B. I am just not sure where to go from here and it is quite irritating.
