You can use one of the following methods to transfer information, based
on your computer configuration.
• Easy Transfer Cable – You need an Easy Transfer Cable, a specially
designed USB cable that connects two computers through USB ports.
• Network – You must set up a network connection between the two
computers and ensure that both computers can access the same
network folders or location.
• USB flash drive or external hard drive – You will need a USB flash
drive or an external hard drive compatible with both computers
Power management helps you reduce the electricity consumption of
your computer by regulating power supply to the various components.
The system setup and the operating system allow you to configure when
the power supply to certain components should be reduced or cut off.
Some common power-saving states in Microsoft Windows are:
• Sleep – Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to
quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds)
when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the
sleep state is like pausing a DVD player; the computer immediately
stops what it is doing and is ready to start again when you want to
• Hibernation – Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily
for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory
and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open
documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your
computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses
the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you
know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't
have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.
