Wow!! Thank you for these tips for our laptops! I bought one a month ago... it was quite expensive and it's important for me to take care of it... I don't want to have problems with my little device :D However, I can't disable my WiFi, because I can have Internet only this way, but I'll keep in mind the rest of them for sure!
