    The power button on my Compaq 1247 Notebook does not always work when operating on battery. Compaq doesn't seem to be of any help. Others have had this problem as evidenced by chat on Compaq web site. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this.

    I was able to fix this problem on one laptop by letting the battery run all the way down, then recharging it completely before using it again....
