This email is an update to previous problems I was having with my Sharp UM32W 
laptop powering off suddenly. 

My original post is here:

A follow up email can be found here:

Since I sent out those emails I have received several back from users with 
similar problems. I had originally wanted to post my findings for the use of 
others. However at this point it is more than obvious that this isn't an 
enormous coincidence that this many people are having the _same_ problem with 
their Sharp UM32W laptops. 

With that said, if you own a UM32W or know someone who does and they are 
having similar problems as the ones I have mentioned in my previous emails, 
please contact me. I am trying to get solid numbers on exactly how many 
people are having this problem and see if there are any legal steps that can 
be taken to right this situation, as it seems more than obvious that Sharp 
knowingly sold defective laptops. 

I realize this isn't a forum for such an email and I apologize, but for all 
intents and purposes, it's the best way I can quickly to reach laptop users.
