If it won't run even when plugged in, that suggests a more dire problem than just the battery. In my old laptop I could remove the battery entirely and it would run fine if it was plugged in.

1. Work on your publications as already said.

2. Teach competently but do not put tons of effort into materials, intensive writing assignments (unless required to) and overly harsh grading.

3. Minimize conflicts with students - unless you are faced with some horror show,  take misbehavior with a grain of salt.

4. DO NOT be an advocate for students against the department. Maybe you have some great idea on how to redo the curriculum or how old professor Fuddy is not competent - let it go.  Unless you see some real unethical horror, don't be presenting your great idea to the faculty. In the same vein, don't take over the department student club or organize a new club.

5. You have no interest in departmental factions about some great issue. Shut up at the department meetings.

Basically, teach and write well - all else is irrelevant.

When my son was born, I saw that as a commitment on my part not to commit suicide for at least twenty years. I took a hard look at my life and realized that there was absolutely no way I personally could make that commitment and stay in academia.

Warm regards, Citrine.  I hope it helps to pass on my favourite Canadian song. It's about salvage diving, but also much more.

My daughter's laptop will not hold a charge, and won't even run when it's plugged in.  What can I do to fix it?

I'm sorry for your loss, ST--it's hard to have to wonder what could have been.

But it still grates on me. I come from the school of thought that, if you fail to submit an assignment on time, you deserve the consequences of that action.

Make America grate again!

No more pre-shredded cheese?
