I've tried diagnosing the sleep/hall sensor on the screen bezel next to the LED illuminator. Placing a (somewhat weak) kitchen magnet there doesn't seem to do anything, however by placing the same magnet on the trackpad, I can tell that the neodymium magnet is still there.
Any ideas if I'm missing something? Are the battery and sleep indicator lights connected to the hall sensor or is it a different problem altogether?
If not, could someone send me a link for the replacement and/or how to replace the sensor? Thanks in advance.
After replacing the LED indicator panel and its cables, which contain the sleep sensor, the problem still exists.
Furthermore, I've been experiencing sporadic sleeping and waking on the machine. The laptop will rapidly sleep and wake for some time. The only way to solve it is to shut down or wait a bit. This is intermittent, so I can still use it but is considerably less reliable.
This sleep/wake cycle seems to be somewhat common, as it is the same problem as described here: viewtopic.php?t=124471
Any ideas? This is my main laptop for college, and I don't want the laptop to sleep/wake when I'm taking an online quiz or exam.
