Well done for diagnosing the problem, even if there was a lot of frustration involved. Pretty sure that's not my problem, but good to know that it's not always the motherboard.
The spot shown above to the right of the touch pad is the exact location where the bracelet caused the "bracelet sleep mode" command. What switch is under this location?
Thank you Thank you, Thank you. I have been trying to figure this out for months (Now I know since I bought a magnetic bracelet)
rbmac22...Your welcome. Now if we could just get Dell and maybe other laptop manufacturers who use this similar "magnetic switch actuation" system architecture to include a warning about magnetic bracelets, we could solve the problem with the other 10,000 people in the world who are having the same problem. Take Care...
