If she drums with her fingers like I use to - for years - everywhere - on anything my hands were close to - books, desk, arm of chair, arm on open window drumming on roof of the car... I use to drive people nuts - they couldn't hear what was in my head.

Find a way to ask her not to do it to your notebook.

I'd be more concerned with something inside coming loose from repeatedly being banged and jarred - after a month, 6 months, a year of this habit (who knows) than the anodized finish on the outside. It's a piece of high end electronics, not a drum kit.

It's also an annoying habit to everyone around - took me a long time to bring it under control - after I started to have some realization of that annoyance to others (or perhaps not until after I started caring about what others felt about it). It can be tough habit to break for those that are playing music in their head all the time, but it can be done. Someone that can give a gentle reminder when they unconsciously start doing it again less than 5 minutes after they just quit can assist. And it does become an unconscious habit after a long period of doing it.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
