Just had an oddity. Figure you'all are smart bunch.
WinME toshiba laptop, while using IE on the web did a back space to return to a previous page and the windows froze. Now I'm sitting here on the living room sofa with this laptop on my lap, the tv's going and I'm wasting a few minutes but as the laptop froze the volume on the tv was muted,, instant quiet ! Look across room at the wifi router and its blinking in a normal rhythm.
Had mouse working but couldn't close or move focus from top window so ctrl-alt-del & closed the ie window
- fixed everything volume on tv started again. Tv remote is no where near me, but within sight - just sitting there.
How did a wireless laptop freeze/unfreeze do a tv mute/unmute ? never saw the mute display icon on the tv but then again wasn't watching for it.
