This is definitely NOT the case with my netbook running C 5.5.

I shut the lid at a friend's home several days ago. I opened the lid
this evening and was presented with exactly the same spot on the web
page I previously looked-at.  The settings was Battery and Suspend.

No LURS, no password, no nothing AND I logged-on automatically to my
WPA2 home network.

I will try the hibernate setting later.


With best regards,
