  1. what should everyday users do to lessen the chance of this happening? I usually leave mine plugged in all the time, is this dangerous?

    • @rick: My only comment is has anyone answered the question – I got the same question as well – but I do not leave mine plugged in – and now I will not leave it plugged in when I leave the area – do not need any fires where I keep my laptop
