Battery Low Signals and Actions
Battery Low occurs when the battery has approximately 10% of its
charge remaining. The computer in the Battery State Indicator LED
blink to alert you to take actions.
NOTE: You can set up your threshold and signals of Battery Low under Windows.
Immediately save your data upon Battery Low. The remaining operating
time depends on how you are using the computer. If you are using the
audio subsystem, PC Card, hard or CD-ROM or floppy disk drives, the
battery might run out of charge very quickly.
Always respond to Battery Low by placing your computer on suspend-
to-disk, turning off the computer, or connecting the AC or car adapter.
If you do not take any action and after two minutes', the computer will
automatically suspend-to-disk (if enabled under O/S program) and turn
off or, system will continue on until battery is dead.
If you are using a flash PC Card, do not access the card during battery low
periods. This is because the access may take longer than the time it takes the
battery to run out of charge, thus making your access to the card unsuccessful.
If you fail to save your data when the battery completely runs out of charge, then
you lose your data.
