Removing the lines surrounding the factual information should make it
clear this is probably rather a hardware issue than anything fixable by
software parameters.

This maybe still leaves the firmware option: Is this machine running the
latest available BIOS from Lenovo?

If upgrading to the latest BIOS is not feasible, i'd rather suggest to
replace the machine with another proven good one.

yes I know, but since we are on a ship for another 20 days and then we
will stop only for one a half days in Hobart I was wondering if there is
a software work around for the hardware problem (like disabling the
screen suspending when it things that the lid is closed) (we might have
to buy one external screen in the time that we will have in Hobart for
the next 2 months of the cruise)

With the internet that we have here it will be difficult to verify but
I'll try to have a look, thanks for the idea.

We would also like to do it!

Thank you!

Nikos Alexandris
Dear Jules Irenge,

would you be interested to contact me off-line for the laptop you
decided to sell?  I might be interested to buy it just for the sake for
having spare parts.

Thank you, Nikos
