TTTT, I included it only as a logical possibility, but you could conceivably
want a "private" mode, so no one has a clue what your ppt

My experience with the Inspiron 4000 has been good, except once,
for a paper presentation -- the IT guy came and looked and fiddled,

It turned out that there was a bent pin on the cable. Otherwise
