The latch of my TiBook (the Tinderbook) usually fails to latch. Occasionally, though, it does latch itself when the case is closed.
The TiBook's case design is justly renowned. This aspect of the design is so clever that I cannot figure out how the latch could possibly work -- or why is doesn't.
I suppose I could have it repaired. But it's a minor nuisance -- and the TiBook is so useful, I don't want to be without it, even for a day or two. But, if you happen to know what might ail the latch, do let me know.
