I am not fluent in english, feel free to correct me.

What happens by default

By default, after your Sims use a laptop, they will leave it on the table.

What the Mod Changes

This mod makes that once placed in the inventory, your Sims will put it autonomously in most of the times they use the computer.

This doesn't work with all actions and doesn't work if the action is canceled.

Leia em Português

Por padrão, depois que um Sim termina de usar um computador portátil, ele o deixará encima da mesa.

O que o Mod muda

O mod faz com que uma vez colocado no inventário, o seu Sim guardará por conta própria na maioria das vezes que usar o computador.

Isso não funciona com todas as ações e não funciona se a ação for cancelada.

Yes, it is sadly broken. Give this LE:
"Possible Cause (Confidence: 100%): Keep Laptop on Inventory.package
Reason: [manus] Exception in <class 'sims4.tuning.instances.computer_JoinVacation'>._tuning_loaded_callback. (AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'factory')"

I second {Lorea]'s report. TwistedMexi's Better Exceptions reports this mod with those exact words.

Hello, I saw a lot of people complaining this mod is broken. Unfortunately I don't know how to solve this, the mod is working normally for me.

Thank you. This will come in handy since my Sims are always leaving their laptop behind. I have to constantly replace the laptops.
