    PowerBook 15" latch is weak
    Maybe this is just a defect on my 15", but the latch is just not very strong. The lid can be opened by lifting the lid with your fingernails (especially if you have a large gap on one side as I do).

    Another instance is when I put it inside a laptop messenger bag, with the latch facing up. When the bag is sitting upright (and consequently the laptop as well), the weight of the base pulls itself away from the lid, and is easily opened by itself.

    Maybe Apple should have put two latches on the 15" just as they did with the 17".

    Get it looked at, dude. It's a well-known problem with some PowerBooks. It's not normal, so call Apple.

    Good luck!
