My document management approach has changed over the years. I used to, very carefully and manually, scan documents, name files, put them in organized folders and so on. I don’t do anything like that anymore.
First of all, be aware the term “CPU” actually refers to only one chip that’s inside the box. We typically refer to that box that I think that you call CPU as “the computer” and the external monitor, “the monitor”.

I’ll review what you need to look for and what you might be missing out on.
You would think after all this time that standby would be a lot more reliable. Sadly, in many cases, it just isn’t. I’ll explain why that is, what I do, and what steps you might take.
Several folks have been surprised to see updates still being delivered to their Windows XP machines. I can think of at least three separate reasons why that might be happening and in fact, will keep on happening.
Everything you’ve described can be done on a tablet.
While the demise of the desktop computer has been grossly overstated in my opinion, scenarios like yours are certainly candidates for just using a tablet. I know several people who do.
