Idle Question and Email Check

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi,

When laptop/netbook is idle, can it be set, so it would still continue checking email every x minutes (Outlook) and notify (sound) when new mail is in the inbox?

What kind of idle are we talking about?
Outlook already checks it at certain intervals, and also has push support if you're using IMAP or Exchange.

Good question! Just the casual, I guess. Close the screen and leave it overnight.

Planning to get E-350 AMD Asus EEE PC once it's released.

You would have to setup the power plan a certain way.
If you close the screen on laptops they will just suspend everything, which means you wont get emails or sounds.

If you set it up so the screen turns off when you close the lid and put it on power saving (might as well) than it will do as you want it to.

BTW since you plan on leaving it on overnight, once you fully charge the battery remove it from the netbook and let it run on AC power. If you leave the battery in with the ac adapter in the battery will degrade faster than normal, it wont be a huge difference but a noticeable one. Then in the morning if you need to take it somewhere, put the battery back in and take it wherever.

Completely and utterly false.

For every article you post saying its false, I'll post two saying its true. And I believe the manufacturers agree with me.

I'll go cuddle my laptop from 2006 which retains >2 hours on the original battery from having it plugged in whenever possible, until you can provide at least some form of proof.

No one is saying that you cant, and 2+ hours isnt exactly impressive. Go ahead and make your statement based on your one laptop, as it doesnt mean I'm wrong.
