I suppose this is a bad blog post to follow the last one where I promised to do more serious school blogging, but I thought maybe the two people who read this might have some helpful suggestions.
A few weeks back, my macbook suddenly failed to fall asleep. Well, not completely. It still falls asleep when I close it but, as I have to keep it open overnight for my morning alarm to work, it's been causing me grief. I manually put it to sleep but as soon as the fans slow down completely, it just wakes itself up again. At first, I thought it was because I put the computer down on the floor roughly and somehow cajoled it back to power, but even when I put it down as gingerly as possible, it wakes up. Sometimes, it manages to stay asleep for a couple minutes--and then I hear it whirling again. I've grown to sleep in constant fear that I will wake up in the middle of the night to the room illuminated by it's blueish radiance.
While this has been an effective (and unsettling) dry run of how parenting will be like one day, I'm afraid something's seriously wrong with it. It stays extremely hot all night; the fans run at full blast. I've tried changing the settings on my system preferences but that doesn't seem to work either. So if anyone has any sort of technical sleeping pills for my macbook, I will be forever grateful.
On a side note, the first week of school has been daunting to say the least; the terms, "multi-headed fascistic regime" and "an hour glass, running out of grains of happiness" were used way too many times for my liking.
(I also just spilled tea on my macbook. I am an awful parent.)
