Standy By not always Standing By

    I have the TC1000. I place the machine in Stand By by
    sliding the power button to the side for one second.

    Most of the time while the machine is in standby in my
    briefcase it shifts to on and the battery runs down.

    Any ways to aviod this?

    Other than perhaps changing the positioning of the Tablet in the briefcase,
    you could always use Hibernation instead of Standby. That actually saves
    the current state (you don't even need to close any programs) to the hard
    drive, so you're right back where you were when you Hibernated.
