"Users can launch Dell Latitude ON simply by pushing a dedicated
Latitude ON button on Dell Latitude E4200 and Latitude E4300
ultra-portable laptops. Latitude ON is designed to utilize a dedicated
low-voltage sub-processor and mini-OS to give mobile workers comprehensive
access to their e-mail, calendars,contacts, and the Internet. To connect to
enterprise networks or the Internet,1 Latitude ON provides support for
standard Wi-Fi or mobile broadband connectivity.

... The software is placed on its own independent partition pressing "that button"

... This would switch the Reader on while the laptop is turned off.

... guess you could try pressing it again to turn that function off(?)

... unhook the mains and remove the main battery hold-in the power button for a few seconds then see what happens when you try again with power/battery hooked up!

thanks kindly for ur responce, I have already tried pressing it again to turn it off but it wont work just suspends it or turns it back on.
I have also tried removing the power leeds and battery and holding the power button, when putting the battery bk in it reboots which is great but once shut down again we have the same problem (power button dont work and only way to turn on is using the lattitude button unless i take battery out but surely that's not something I should keep doing just turn switch the computer on? this is becoming a nightmere, so worried as its my father in law's computer that he has kindly borrowed me :(, thanks again
