Freakin' stupid computers. I was getting some food in Oakland, and I noticed my lower back was really hot, in excess even of what one would expect from being overdressed since it was cold earlier in the day. I checked out the contents of my backpack, and found that my laptop, though ostensibly in hibernate mode, was extremely hot, especially in the battery. I tried booting, and got nothing. I tried unplugging the battery and booting from wall power, and it worked. I let it cool down a bit and tried using the battery; apparently it had discharged down to 0%.

Now if it had just stayed on running at full power (as my old, old Vaio did sometimes) it would make some sense, but it had only been in my bag about an hour; not really long enough for a full discharge.
