Note: If the Sleep indicator is off, the computer has entered
Hibernation mode and is turned off. If the power indicator is off
but the Sleep indicator is on, the computer has entered Sleep
mode. In both cases, press and release the power button to turn
the computer back on. Note that the computer may enter
Hibernation mode after being in Sleep mode for a period of time.
What to bring to meetings
If your meeting is relatively short, you probably do not need to bring anything
with you other than your computer. If your meeting will be longer, or if your
battery is not fully charged, you may want to bring the AC adapter with you to
plug in your computer in the meeting room.
If the meeting room does not have an electrical outlet, reduce the drain on the
battery by putting the computer in Sleep mode. Press <Fn> + <F4> or close the
display cover whenever you are not actively using the computer. To resume,
open the display (if closed), then press and release the power button.
Taking the computer home
When you are moving from your office to your home or vice versa.
Preparing the computer
After disconnecting the computer from your desktop, follow these steps to
prepare the computer for the trip home:
Check that you have removed all media and compact disks from the
drive(s). Failure to remove the media can damage the drive head.
Pack the computer in a protective case that can prevent the computer from
sliding around and cushion it if it should fall.
Caution: Avoid packing items next to the top cover of the
computer. Pressure against the top cover can damage the screen.
What to take with you
Unless you have some items at home, take the following items with you:
AC adapter and power cord
