PC World: "Reader Shawn wrote in with this power pickle:
"I have a Dell Studio Laptop. When I turn off my computer, the power-button light stays on and blinks. The only way I can stop it from blinking is to disconnect the battery and then connect it again. Please help."
I have a pretty good idea what's happening here, Shawn: You're using the Studio's power button to shut down, but it's actually putting the system into standby mode. That would explain the blinking LED.
There are two easy fixes for this."
