  • Exactly the same thing happened to me last night. Including the external monitor the laptop was attached to. I just fumbled for the suspend key on my laptop and it was all fine.

    Unfortunately, my server didn't turn out so well. It's dead, dead, dead. I think the power supply has blown a fuse thanks to the genius of the electricity company in managing to make the power flicker on and off repeatedly for minutes before finally giving out. Still, there's no smoke.
