    Hi to everybody!

    I´ve been running Windows Vista (Home Premium) normally since January 30 but
    today a strange behaviour started to happen everytime I close my notebook´s
    lid: I noticed that HD´s led kept blinking and, as I hadnt set my system to
    go into suspend/hibernate mode as soon as I close the lid, I reopened it to
    find the screen off but the power & wireless led were on as if the computer
    was on (I´ve a Sony Vaio VGN-FS315S notebook) and I really think is on
    because when I tried to wake up the system with no luck (no key woke it up),
    I finally chose to push the power button and the system went into hibernate
    mode (I have the power button set to do that); once the computer was off, I
    again pressed the power button and the system came back from hibernation

    The curiosity is that as I had pressed several keys to try to wake the
    system up, I found several windows opened...so the system was working but the
    screen was off!

    Im wondering what the problem is as Vista is set to do nothing when I close
    the lid of my notebook

    Any hint?

    BTW, I´ve experienced another problem since two days ago: Windows is unable
    to show its Help; a window pop ups saying Windows was unable to download from
    / windows; have you experienced the same problem? is there a way to fix it?
