I just donít get it. I have a $1500.00 HP Laser Printer that after 1 hour shuts down and patiently waits until I send a job. Then it magically ďwakes upĒ after 15 seconds and printsrepparttar job. Inrepparttar 137183 other office, I have an HP G85 color printer; it goes to sleep and turns offrepparttar 137184 scanner light. Something in its circuitry knows how to come out of technical coma mode and with no human intervention; it copies, scans and prints. I even have a battery powered adding machine that does a power down after 15 minutes. Come to think of it, so does my Sony camera, my electric toothbrush, and my portable tape recorder. Why canít my cell phone?

After all, I donít use my electric tooth brush, adding machine, printer or camera in life saving situations, but someday, I may have to do that with my cell phone. When my husband fell in a turtle hole while hiking inrepparttar 137185 desert, and broke his arm, it was his cell phone that enabled him to call home. Why donít cell phones have battery save mode?

How many times, have you been inrepparttar 137186 car, or withrepparttar 137187 kids, and needed to call home? You take out your cell phone, and oops,repparttar 137188 battery is dead. Sometimes, my cell phone even lies to me. It saysrepparttar 137189 battery is still alive. Just as I dialrepparttar 137190 number, and hearrepparttar 137191 voice onrepparttar 137192 receiving end say hello, thatís when my cell phone dies.
