There was not enough time for Walt to have closed it and it would have been heard if he did.

Box Cutter - S4-E1

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Hank is on his laptop bidding on a mineral on 'Mineral Emporium', the address bar shows 'C://.' which means the web-page is in his own documents on his laptop. No way he can bid on a mineral if it's not online! (00:24:15)

Walter White: Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? I mean, even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. Do you know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going into work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears. It ceases to exist, without me. No, you don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I AM the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, and you think that of me? No! I am the one who knocks!
