HP laptop keeps randomly “locking” and turning off
the symptoms you are describing are normally the result of a dead/discharged battery
I totally forgot that cause, Mikey11, if he also has an ac adapter plugged in, that can still happen because a dead/discharged (not being charged by the ac adapter) battery? As a substitute teacher, I have run into non-working ac outletds, meaning my ac adapter was dead, not charging the laptop battery, only my BatteryBar gave me warning enough to find another working outlet – before laptop would suddenly shutdown without warning.
