I’ve done this myself quite a few times. There’s nothing worse than seeing other people having to use their laptops like this. It really doesn’t look good. It’s bad at the station but it’s even worse at the office. How many readers have at least one person in their office who wander around with their laptop open like this? Fair enough, by the way, if it means you can avoid a 15-minute ‘sleep then wake’ process thanks to all the rubbish the IT team has installed on the machine for ‘security purposes’.
