I have a Targus bag that I transport my HP 2710p Tablet PC, which sits on it's 'back' edge. With Windows Sleep mode, the laptop goes fully into a low power system, and it automatically hibernates if it has been a long amount of time i sleep.

If it had an SSD it would be better....but I have no qualms of transporting it when it is in sleep mode. I rarely power the machine off, except to reboot the machine when it has installed updates....

Make sure that any flash usb stick or adapter is remove during the backpacking. Seen the results of not pulling one out before, not good.

Lol - my first thought was "omg, that's just obvious...."

Then I realized what *I* had seen happen to both lappys and UFDs - and you're right. It never hurts to explicitly state even the little things like this....

Sleep, hibernate and off are good for the lappy in storage - *on* is ***NOT***
Don't leave things in the USB slots as they can get damaged . destroyed, and can also damage / destroy your laptop with the right type of impact....
Do not store bulky material inside the bag that can pressure the LCD screen - likewise, make sure the LCD screen side of the bag has the most padding, as that is much easier to damage than the bottom of most lappys....

I never thought about the LCd side being more vulnerable. Makes sense.

An cartoon character from the early 90's I believe. Johnny Dangerously? Not sure of the name but a friend of mine's kid loved the show. So we made a poster for his wall. Using an old hp printer and the jpg. that we ripped from the web.
