Docking the Computer
Before you initially connect your computer to the APR, you must
complete the operating system setup. When you see the Windows desktop on
your screen, the operating system setup is complete.
You dock your computer when you connect it to an APR. You must connect
the AC adapter to the APR before you dock and turn on the computer. The
AC adapter powers the APR and the computer at the same time. Any
battery installed in the computer charges while you use the APR.
