After the update was complete it was 'screaming' out for a reboot, as I was on my desktop at the time I thought I'd let it reboot.Went through the usual tasks, There was an updated, listed as "optional" available. When I tried to wake it, all I got was a black screen. The LED I guess proves that there's power getting to the hard drive, but doesn't prove that it's working correctly.

I have three laptops set up that way and I use mostly 64-bit, but choose to leave it with the OS that it came with from the factory. I believe they were all removed by the moderator...Robert, or Bob. This pisses me off, obviously, since it's something i change according to battery power and other conditions.
