Cookies are small files that websites put on your computer hard disk drive when you first visit. Think of a cookie as an identification card that’s uniquely yours. Its job is to notify the site when you’ve returned. Cookies shouldn’t be confused with viruses. While it is possible to misuse a cookie in cases where there is personal data in it, cookies by themselves are not malicious.
Cookies can help you be more efficient. Have you ever put something in a virtual shopping cart in an online store and then returned a few days later to find that the item is still there? That’s an example of cookies at work.
Cookies let you store preferences and user names, register products and services, and personalize pages.
But if you never register or leave personal information at a site, then the server only knows that someone with your cookie has returned to the website. It doesn’t know anything else. You’re in charge of deciding whether “they” know anything about you.
Verify that your computer is able to see the Internet and/or other computers to ensure that your computer is not encountering a connection issue, which would be causing your e-mail issue.

First check the computer’s power cord to make sure it is completely plugged into the wall socket. If you are using a plug strip, make sure it is completely plugged into the wall socket and that the power switch on the plug strip is turned on. Some plug strips also have a built in circuit breaker which usually looks like a black or red button near the power switch. Press the button to reset it and see if that solves the problem.
For a laptop, please ensure your laptops battery is correctly inserted, please also ensure there is charge on the battery. Alternatively connect your charger to the wall plug and connect it to your laptop, check to see if the charger indicator light is illuminated (this will verify if the charger is working or not)
Ever wonder why your computer warns you about ejecting those USB drives before you remove them? It’s because computers use something called write caching to improve performance: if you copy something to your drive, it’ll tell you it’s completed the task, but it’s actually waiting until it has a few other tasks to perform so it can do them all at once. Efficient, right? When you press eject, your PC finishes anything in the queue to make sure you don’t incur any data loss. Windows does a better job of avoiding problems than OS X and Linux, but we recommend ejecting all your drives anywayIt’s small price to pay for keeping your data safe.
You’ve probably heard some people say you should drain your battery completely before charging it, or that you should keep it between 40% and 80% all the time to make it last longer. Most of these rules are outdated, applying to older nickel-based batteries. Luckily, most or all of your gadgets these days run on Lithium Ion batteries, which are easy to take care of. They last longer when you perform shallow discharges, keep them cool, and don’t leave them plugged in while they’re running at 100%.

The advantage of sleep is that it takes only seconds to restore your computer to where you left off and uses a very small amount of electricity. Also, you don’t need to restart programs or reopen files like you do if you shut down the computer.
There are times when you must shut down your computer fully—for example, when you install new hardware or when you need to unplug a desktop computer.
