Special Situations at Shutdown
If you switch the monitor off and then on again immediately, the iPC will continue running and
will not be shut down.
In some situations, shutting down the iPC can take a little time. The monitor will go into Standby
mode until the shutdown is complete. By touching the touchscreen, you can bring the monitor
back into operating mode. If you do this, the iPC will restart when the shutdown is complete.
If the shutdown cannot be completed within a certain time, a window will open giving the reason:
for example, that a file has not been saved, or that updates are being installed. You can then decide
whether to wait (for example, in the case of the updates) or to take action (for example by saving
the unsaved file). You will also have the option to force shutdown, if necessary.

This is controlled by two monitor settings that are applied to the monitor in companion mode on
connection. You can change the settings in Configuration Mode.
Global settings such as line frequency, QRS sound and ECG lead colors from the host monitor,
are applied to the monitor in companion mode on connection. When disconnected from the host,
the monitor in companion mode re-applies its own global settings.
No audible alarms are available on a monitor in companion mode when connected to a host
monitor. The only visual alarm indication is provided by the alarm lamps which are controlled by
the host monitor. Alarms become active again as soon as the monitor in companion mode is
disconnected from the host monitor.
