Assuming you wanted an answer... For one thing the powerbooks got 'close 
lid, sleep, open lid wake up, grab a fresh network connection and 
continue' right about a decade ago and the odds of that working with any 
PC hardware/OS combination even today are pretty dismal and it makes a 
laptop nearly useless if you can't just open it in a new location and 
click the next link on a page within a few seconds.
