    Computer reboots when plugging it... [Solved]

    Hey zg_nico, your English is just fine, thank you. I wish I was multilingual. I have a bit of Spanish, just enough to get me by at the shops here in the Republica Dominicana. I will not starve. :) But when I met a woman who was 109 years old, I could have just about cried. The stories she could...

    Computer reboots when plugging it... [Solved]

    You were partially right, zg_nico. Pulling the battery and plugging-in stops the re-boot problem. But the battery seems good; charges and runs the Lenovo X230 for a couple of hours. I have to look up the command to test the battery in the Terminal. I’m sure there is one. When plugged in and...

    Hey Wiz. Thanks for everything. Just curious, but you ever figure out who the guy was who posted the photos? I mean, I guess I should be flattered that he would take the time and effort to delve into my personal life, but hell… it’s still kinda creepy. Katie

    Computer reboots when plugging it... [Solved]

    Oh, Vrai, if it were that easy... Went into Power Settings and the Close Lid settings. Tried all three settings in Battery and AC. That made no difference. I tried unplugging the power cord (12V adapter), and used the Terminal Command: shutdown. The computer responds as expected but as soon as...

    Computer reboots when plugging it... [Solved]

    Got a bit of annoying problem with my ThinkPad X230. When I plug in the charger, after about three minutes with the lid closed, the computer reboots. I had Zorin/Gnome installed and a change to Mint/Cinnamon didn’t solve the problem. I checked Bios and the Wake on LAN feature is disabled. I...

    Installing Extreme Download Manager [Solved]

    Good call! Thank you @Daviboy. Fiddled with this a little more and got java jdk installed. (Hope it doesn't turn and bite me :) ) After that, Extreme Download Manager was easy. Downloaded a dozen videos from YouTube and they played back with VLC without issue. Good audio and visuals. No Java...

    Installing Extreme Download Manager [Solved]

    Hey guys, Moving forward, I am looking at installing the Extreme Download Manager but get the message: XDM requires Java Runtime 1.6 (Java SE 6 / Openjdk6 ) or Higher. “java -version” entered into the Terminal tells me that I have jre11.0.5 installed. Shouldn’t that be enough to run XDM? I...
