What is your power plan and brightness level?

EDIT

Oh, and you have nice background.
I'm really hoping its the power button. My mom took it to a local computer shop (without my knowledge...) and they said they have these type laptops, with the power button on the hinge of the screen, coming in all the time, and he expects it to be the power button that is the problem. They just wouldn't open it up until I gave them $70... so I'm gonna wait til I get some more moo-la.

And I had the performance and brightness set up all the way.... which probably didn't help. I did have it set to the lowest level for everything when running on battery, however, I hardly ever use it on battery

And yeah... lightning looks cool
