I agree. My laptop has to run with sleep capability disabled on AC power because I don't
want it going into screen-saver mode or sleep mode if I take ten minutes to hold a
discussion with my students. OTOH, I have sleep enabled for pure-battery mode so if *I*
fall asleep while using it, I don't lose battery power.
But the illlusion that just because there is no user input the computer can be shut down
is a gross fallacy. And I truly despise that reboot-after-installing-updates message.
