I've been wondering, how does that work?  How does the cover trigger that?  I 
see the metal inside the cover, but no sensor on the 770 itself.

What is the low power state?  Is it like ACPI S3 (Windows Standby) or S4 

What about when you power off the 770 with the switch on the top?  I assume 
that's a complete halt in Linux.
