I think this is a hardware issue, my old 6 year old Dell laptop has a problem with its switch on button....sometimes it works and sometimes not. I guess it's age. Sometimes I can't switch it on when the button refuses to work.
My question is, rather than sending it for repair to Dell, can I just leave the laptop sleeping instead of switching it off completely? when I close the lid it goes to sleep, then wakes up when I open it, that avoids having to use the switch on button.
I know some people that NEVER switch their computer off, but is it a good idea?
Please can you advise?
