The BIOS update came just over a year ago, but I’d long since given up checking the drivers and updates page. I’ve gotten so used to not being able to sleep the thing that it’s going to be a little odd having a real laptop again.

That’s the problem with intractable institutions: it’s often tempting to stop fighting and just work around them.
