Damn it!
My laptop was working fine when I powered it down to leave work at 8.

I powered it back up here at home an hour later, and the damned backlight has failed! I can see the faintest shadow of the image on the screen in exactly the right light. And, of course, the VGA output works fine (that's what I'm using right now, with an old junk monitor.)

I leave for Boston, *tomorrow*. I cannot be without my computing environment.

Double check that the lid close sensor hasn't gotten stuck or failed ?

If I can figure out where IBM put the sensor...

Seattle Laptop was able to track down the part to fix the backlight on my laptop. They're good people.
