System Disposal
Recycling your battery
Over time, the batteries that run your mobile computer will begin to hold a charge for a shorter amount of time; this is a natural
occurrence for all batteries. When this occurs, you may want to replace the battery with a fresh one*. If you replace it, it is important
that you dispose of the old battery properly because batteries contain materials that could cause environmental damage if disposed of
improperly.
Fujitsu is very concerned with environmental protection, and has enlisted the services of the Rechargeable Battery
Recycling Corporation (RBRC)**, a non-profit public service organization dedicated to protecting our environment
by recycling old batteries at no cost to you.
RBRC has drop-off points at tens of thousands of locations throughout the United States and Canada. To find the
location nearest you, go to www.RBRC.org or call 1-800-822-8837.
If there are no convenient RBRC locations near you, you can also go to the EIA Consumer Education Initiative website
(http://EIAE.org/) and search for a convenient disposal location.
Remember – protecting the environment is a cooperative effort, and you should make every effort to protect it for current and future
generations.
*
To order a new battery for your Fujitsu mobile computer, go to the Fujitsu shopping site at www.shopfujitsu.com in the US or
www.fujitsu.ca/products/notebooks in Canada.
** RBRC is an independent third party to which Fujitsu provides funding for battery recycling; RBRC is in no way affiliated with
Fujitsu.

Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has an integral 84-key keyboard. The keys perform all the standard
functions of a 101-key keyboard, including the Windows keys and other special function keys. This
section describes the following keys (Figure 12):
36 - Keyboard
• Numeric keypad: Your notebook allows certain keys to serve dual purposes, both as standard
characters and as numeric and mathematical keys. The ability to toggle between the standard
character and numerical keys is controlled through the [NumLk] key.
• Cursor keys: Your keyboard contains four arrow keys for moving the cursor or insertion point to
the right, left, up, or down within windows, applications and documents.
• Function keys: The keys labeled [F1] through [F12], are used in conjunction with the [Fn] key to
produce special actions that vary depending on what program is running.
• Windows keys: These keys work with your Windows operating system and function the same as
the onscreen Start menu button, or the right button on your pointing device.
Numeric Keypad
Certain keys on the keyboard perform dual functions as both standard character keys and numeric keypad
keys. NumLk can be activated by pressing the [NumLk] keys. Turning off the NumLk feature is done the
same way. Once this feature is activated you can enter numerals 0 through 9, perform addition ( + ),
subtraction ( - ), multiplication ( * ), or division ( / ), and enter decimal points ( . ) using the keys designated
as ten-key function keys. The keys in the numeric keypad are marked on the front edge of the key to
indicate their secondary functions.
Windows Keys
Your LifeBook notebook has two Windows keys, consisting of a Start key and an Application key. The
Start key displays the Start menu. This button functions the same as your onscreen Start menu button. The
Application key functions the same as your right mouse button and displays shortcut menus for the
selected item. (Please refer to your Windows documentation for additional information regarding the
Windows keys.)
Cursor Keys
The cursor keys are the four arrow keys on the keyboard which allow you to move the cursor up, down,
left and right in applications. In programs such as Windows Explorer, it moves the “focus” (selects the
next item up, down, left, or right).

The Quick Point is built into your LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the movement of the cursor to
select items on your display panel. The Quick Point is composed of a cursor control at the center of the
keyboard and three buttons on the palm rest of your computer. The cursor control works the same way a
mouse ball does, and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires light pressure with the tip of
your finger, and the more pressure you use, the faster the cursor will move. The left button functions the
same as a left mouse button while the right button has the same function as a right mouse button. When
used with the cursor control, the middle button allows you to scroll up and down a screen. The actual
functionality of the buttons may vary depending on the application that is being used.

Installing a Pen Tether
To prevent dropping or losing your
pen, you should attach it to your
system using the pen tether that is
included with the system.
To attach the pen tether to your
notebook, perform the following
steps:
1
Attach the end of the pen tether with
the smaller loop to your pen. To do
so, push the end of the tether through
the hole in the pen, then thread the
opposite end of the tether through
the loop.
2
Attach the end of the pen tether with the larger loop to the attachment point on your tablet. To do so, insert the
end of the pen tether through the attachment point, then feed the pen through the large loop in the tether.

Volume Control
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has multiple volume controls which interact with each other.
ANY SOFTWARE THAT CONTAINS AUDIO FILES WILL ALSO CONTAIN A VOLUME CONTROL OF ITS OWN. IF
YOU INSTALL AN EXTERNAL AUDIO DEVICE THAT HAS AN INDEPENDENT VOLUME CONTROL, THE
HARDWARE VOLUME CONTROL AND THE SOFTWARE VOLUME CONTROL WILL INTERACT WITH EACH
OTHER. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT IF YOU SET YOUR SOFTWARE VOLUME TO
OFF, YOU WILL OVERRIDE
THE EXTERNAL VOLUME CONTROL SETTING.
Controlling the Volume
The volume can be controlled in several different ways:
• Volume can be changed or muted from within the Volume Control in the system tray.
• Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 functions keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding
[Fn] will decrease the volume of your notebook. Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will
increase the volume of your notebook.
• Volume can be muted by pressing the [F3] key while holding down the [Fn] key. To restore audio,
repeat the [Fn+F3] procedure.
• Volume can be controlled by many volume controls that are set within individual applications.
• Certain external audio devices you might connect to your system may have hardware volume
controls.
Each source discussed above puts an upper limit on the volume level that must then be followed by
the other sources. We recommend that you experiment with the various volume controls to discover
the optimal sound level.

Passwords
The user and supervisor password may be set on this notebook. A supervisor password is typically the
same for all tablets and notebooks in a work group, office, or company to allow for system management.
Individual computers in a group environment should not use a common password. A password consists
of one to five button strokes plus the enter button. A valid stroke consists of pushing one or up to four
buttons simultaneously.
The following are valid button strokes:
• Pushing [4] by itself
• Pushing [2] and [3] at the same time
• Pushing [1], [2], and [4] at the same time
• Pushing [1], [2], [3], and [4] at the same time
The following are valid passwords. The numbers within braces ({ }) are button strokes using more than
one button.
• {[2]+[3]}, [1], [Enter]
• [4], [enter]
• {[1]+[3]}, {[2]+[3]+[4]}, [1], [4], [2], [Enter]
Setting Passwords
When shipped from the factory, no passwords are set. You have a choice of having no password or setting
a supervisor and user password. You must set the supervisor password before the user password.
•
THE PURPOSE OF SUPERVISOR PASSWORD IS TO BE ABLE TO BYPASS THE USER PASSWORD IN CASE THE USER
PASSWORD IS FORGOTTEN. THE SUPERVISOR PASSWORD ALONE WILL NOT LOCK THE SYSTEM.
•
YOU MUST SET THE SUPERVISOR AND USER PASSWORDS FOR THE SECURITY PANEL TO WORK.

Boot Sequence
The procedure for starting-up your notebook is termed the Bootup sequence and involves your
notebook’s BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on, the main system memory is empty,
and it needs to find instructions to start up your notebook. This information is in the BIOS program.
Each time you power up or restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence which displays a
Fujitsu logo until your operating system is loaded. During booting, your notebook is performing a
standard boot sequence including a Power On Self Test (POST). When the boot sequence is completed
without a failure and without a request for the BIOS Setup Utility, the system displays the operating
system’s opening screen.
The boot sequence is executed when:
• You turn on the power to your LifeBook notebook.
• You restart your notebook from the Windows Shut Down dialog box.
• The software initiates a system restart. Example: When you install a new application.
Hard Disk Drive Passwords
To provide additional security for your data, you can assign passwords to your hard disk drive(s). This
feature is managed in the system BIOS Setup Utility. See BIOS Setup Utility below for information
about accessing the utility.

Fujitsu Driver Update Utility
Your system has a convenient tool called the Fujitsu Driver Update (FDU) utility. With FDU, you can
choose to automatically or manually go to the Fujitsu site to check for new updates for your system.
For more information about the FDU utility, refer to “Automatically Downloading Driver Updates”
on page 83.
70 - Starting Your LifeBook Notebook
Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and features for conserving battery power. Some
of these features are automatic and need no user intervention. However, others depend on the
parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness.
Internal power management for your notebook may be controlled from settings made in your
operating system, pre-bundled power management application, or from settings made in BIOS setup
utility.
PLEASE NOTE THAT “STANDBY MODE” IN WINDOWS XP IS KNOWN AS “SLEEP MODE” IN WINDOWS
VISTA. THE TWO TERMS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE. FOR PURPOSES OF THIS DOCUMENT, “STANDBY
MODE” WILL BE USED.
Besides the options available for conserving battery power, there are also some things that you can do
to prevent your battery from running down as quickly. For example, you can create an appropriate
power saving profile, put your notebook into Standby (Sleep) mode when it is not performing an
operation, and you can limit the use of high power devices. As with all mobile, battery powered
computers, there is a trade-off between performance and power savings.
Power/Suspend/Resume Button
When your notebook is active, the Power/Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put the
notebook into Standby mode. Push the Power/Suspend/Resume button when the notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately release the button.
If your notebook is suspended, pushing the Power/Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to
active operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended by looking at the Power indicator. If
the indicator is visible and not flashing, your notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Standby mode. If the indicator is not visible, the power is off or your
notebook is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
71 - Power Management
Standby (Sleep) Mode
Standby (Sleep) mode in Windows saves the contents of your system memory during periods of
inactivity by maintaining power to critical parts. This mode turns off the CPU, display, hard drive, and
all other internal components except those necessary to maintain system memory and for restarting.
Your notebook can be put in Standby mode by:
• Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when your system is turned on.
• Selecting Standby (“Sleep” in Windows Vista) from the Windows Shut Down menu.
• Timing out from lack of activity.
• Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file on which you are working, open application
information, and any other data required to support operations in progress. When you resume
operation from Standby mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left off. You must use
the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume operation, and there must be an adequate power source
available, or your notebook will not resume.
72 - Power Management
■
IF RUNNING YOUR NOTEBOOK ON BATTERY POWER, BE AWARE THAT THE BATTERY CONTINUES TO DISCHARGE
WHILE YOUR NOTEBOOK IS IN STANDBY MODE, THOUGH NOT AS FAST AS WHEN FULLY OPERATIONAL.
■
DISABLING THE POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON PREVENTS IT FROM BEING USED TO PUT THE NOTEBOOK INTO
STANDBY OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE. THE BUTTON RESUME FUNCTION CAN’T BE DISABLED.
■
THE STANDBY OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE SHOULD NOT BE USED WITH CERTAIN PC CARDS. CHECK
YOUR PC CARD DOCUMENTATION FOR MORE INFORMATION. WHEN PC CARDS OR EXTERNAL DEVICES ARE IN
USE, HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE CANNOT RETURN TO THE EXACT STATE PRIOR TO SUSPENSION,
BECAUSE ALL OF THE PERIPHERAL DEVICES WILL BE RE-INITIALIZED WHEN THE SYSTEM RESTARTS.
■
IF YOUR NOTEBOOK IS ACTIVELY ACCESSING INFORMATION WHEN YOU ENTER THE STANDBY OR HIBERNATION
(SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE, CHANGES TO OPEN FILES ARE NOT LOST. THE FILES ARE LEFT OPEN AND MEMORY IS KEPT
ACTIVE DURING STANDBY MODE OR THE MEMORY IS TRANSFERRED TO THE INTERNAL HARD DRIVE DURING HIBERNATION MODE.
THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF USING HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) IS THAT POWER IS NOT REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN
YOUR DATA. THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT IF YOU WILL BE LEAVING YOUR NOTEBOOK IN A SUSPENDED STATE
FOR A PROLONGED PERIOD OF TIME. THE DRAWBACK OF USING HIBERNATION MODE IS THAT IT LENGTHENS THE
POWER DOWN AND POWER UP SEQUENCES AND RESETS PERIPHERAL DEVICES.
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Feature
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your notebook’s system memory to the hard drive as a
part of the Suspend/Resume mode. You can enable or disable this feature.
Enable or Disable the Hibernation Feature
Windows Vista:
The default settings are not enabled. To enable or disable the Hibernation feature follow these steps:
1
2
From the Start menu, select Control Panel, then select the Power Options icon.
Select “Choose what the power button does” or “Choose what closing the lid does”, then make your selections
(Do Nothing, Sleep, Hibernate, or Shut Down).

3
From the Start menu, select Settings, and then select Control Panel.
From the Control Panel select Power Options.
Select the Hibernate tab. Select the box to enable or disable this feature.
Windows Power Management
The Power Options icon located in the Windows Control Panel allows you to configure some of the
power management settings. For example, you can use the Power Options to set the timeout values for
turning off the display and hard disks whether you are running the notebook on battery power or one
of the adapters.
Restarting the System
If your system is on and you need to restart it, be sure that you use the following procedure.

Click the [Start] button, and then click Turn Off Computer.
Select the Restart option. Your notebook will shut down and then reboot.
TURNING OFF YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK WITHOUT EXITING WINDOWS OR TURNING ON YOUR
NOTEBOOK WITHIN 10 SECONDS OF THE NOTEBOOK BEING SHUT OFF MAY CAUSE AN ERROR WHEN
YOU START THE NEXT TIME.
74 - Power Management
Powering Off
Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive/optical drive access indicator is off. If you turn
off the power while accessing a disk there is a risk of data loss. To ensure that your notebook shuts
down without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
BE SURE TO CLOSE ALL FILES, EXIT ALL APPLICATIONS, AND SHUT DOWN YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM
PRIOR TO TURNING OFF THE POWER. IF FILES ARE OPEN WHEN YOU TURN THE POWER OFF, YOU WILL
LOSE ANY CHANGES THAT HAVE NOT BEEN SAVED, AND MAY CAUSE DISK ERRORS.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows allows your notebook to complete its
operations and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The proper sequence is:
Windows Vista:
1
Click the [Start] button, and then move the mouse over the small arrow at the bottom right of the right-hand
pane.
2
Select Shut Down from the list.
Windows XP:

User-Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that provides power for operating your notebook when
no external power source is available. The battery is durable and long lasting, but should not be exposed
to extreme temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
• When used at temperatures that exceed a low of 5°C or a high of 35°C. Extreme temperatures not
only reduce charging efficiency, but can also cause battery deterioration. The Charging icon on the
Status Indicator panel will flash when you try to charge a battery that is outside its operating
temperature range.
• When using a high current device such as a modem, external optical drive, or the hard drive, using
the AC adapter will conserve your battery life.
DO NOT LEAVE A FAULTY BATTERY IN YOUR NOTEBOOK. IT MAY DAMAGE YOUR AC ADAPTER, OPTIONAL
AUTO/AIRLINE ADAPTER, ANOTHER BATTERY OR YOUR NOTEBOOK ITSELF. IT MAY ALSO PREVENT
OPERATION OF YOUR NOTEBOOK BY DRAINING ALL AVAILABLE CURRENT INTO THE BAD BATTERY.
76
•
ACTUAL BATTERY LIFE WILL VARY BASED ON SCREEN BRIGHTNESS, APPLICATIONS, FEATURES, POWER
MANAGEMENT SETTINGS, BATTERY CONDITION AND OTHER CUSTOMER PREFERENCES. OPTICAL DRIVE OR
HARD DRIVE USAGE MAY ALSO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON BATTERY LIFE. THE BATTERY CHARGING
CAPACITY IS REDUCED AS THE BATTERY AGES. IF YOUR BATTERY IS RUNNING LOW QUICKLY, YOU SHOULD
REPLACE IT WITH A NEW ONE.
•
UNDER FEDERAL, STATE, OR LOCAL LAW IT MAY BE ILLEGAL TO DISPOSE OF BATTERIES BY PUTTING THEM IN
THE TRASH. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND DISPOSE OF BATTERIES PROPERLY. CHECK WITH
YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY FOR DETAILS REGARDING RECYCLING OR DISPOSING OF OLD
BATTERIES. IF YOU CANNOT FIND THIS INFORMATION ELSEWHERE, CONTACT YOUR SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE
AT
1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800-838-5487)
Recharging the Batteries
If you want to know the condition of the primary Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge
the battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged is installed in your LifeBook notebook and
connect the AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
MAKE SURE THAT THE PERCENTAGE CHARGE IS INDICATED BY THE BATTERY CHARGING INDICATOR ON
THE STATUS INDICATOR PANEL.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion battery therefore you do not need to discharge the battery
completely before recharging. The charge times will be significantly longer if your notebook is in use
while the battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your notebook into
Standby mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery. (See Power Management on page
71 for more information on Standby mode and shutdown procedure)
77 - Lithium ion Battery
USING HEAVY CURRENT DEVICES OR FREQUENT EXTERNAL OPTICAL DRIVE ACCESSES MAY PREVENT
CHARGING COMPLETELY.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to
the low battery message, the batteries will continue to discharge until they are too low to operate. When
this happens, your notebook will go into Standby mode. There is no guarantee that your data will be saved
once the notebook reaches this point.
■
■
ONCE THE LOW BATTERY NOTIFICATION MESSAGE APPEARS, YOU NEED TO SAVE ALL YOUR ACTIVE DATA AND
PUT YOUR LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK INTO STANDBY MODE UNTIL YOU CAN PROVIDE A NEW POWER SOURCE. YOU
SHOULD PROVIDE A CHARGED BATTERY, AN AC POWER ADAPTER, OR AUTO/AIRLINE ADAPTER AS SOON AS
POSSIBLE.
WHEN YOU ARE IN STANDBY MODE THERE MUST ALWAYS BE AT LEAST ONE POWER SOURCE ACTIVE. IF YOU
LIFEBOOK NOTEBOOK IS IN STANDBY MODE, ANY DATA THAT HAS
NOT BEEN SAVED TO THE HARD DRIVE WILL BE LOST.
REMOVE ALL POWER SOURCES WHILE YOUR
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Standby mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you will be unable to resume operation until you provide
a source of power either from an adapter, or a charged battery. Once you have provided power, you will
need to press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume operation.
In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be maintained for some time, but if a power source is
not provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the
data that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can continue to use your notebook while an adapter
is charging the battery.
78 - Lithium ion Battery
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel indicator associated with the Battery Level indicator displays the operating
level available in that battery. If this display shows a flashing red LED, it means the battery is damaged
and must be replaced so it does not damage other parts of your LifeBook notebook.
Replacing the Battery
With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not
charged. There are two ways to swap batteries, cold-swapping and hot-swapping:
Cold-swapping Batteries
To cold-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these easy steps (Figure 16):

route messages based on the IP address of the destination. The format of an IP address is a 32-bit
numeric address written as four numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. For
example, 1.160.10.240 could be an IP address.
Within an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses at random as long as each one is unique.
However, connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses (called
Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.
The four numbers in an IP address are used in different ways to identify a particular network and a
host on that network. Three regional Internet registries -- ARIN, RIPE NCC and APNIC -- assign
Internet addresses from the following three classes.
Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 126 networks
Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks
Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million networks
The number of unassigned Internet addresses is running out, so a new classless scheme called CIDR
is gradually replacing the system based on classes A, B, and C and is tied to adoption of IPv6.

FCC Radio Frequency Exposure statement
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no
proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency
energy (RF) in the microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to
low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposure have not
found any biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings have not been
confirmed by additional research. The wireless LAN radio device has been tested and found to comply with FCC radiation exposure limits
set forth for an uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65.

Wireless LAN Modes Using this Device
Ad Hoc Mode
"Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless network architecture where wireless network connectivity between
multiple computers is established without a central wireless network device, typically known as Access
Point(s). Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices in a peer-to-peer fashion. That is why Ad
Hoc networks are also known as peer-to-peer networks. Ad Hoc networks are an easy and inexpensive
method for establishing network connectivity between multiple computers. Ad Hoc mode requires that the
SSID, network authentication, and encryption key settings are identically configured on all computers in
the Ad Hoc network.

devices can communicate with each other or with a wired network. Corporate wireless networks operate
in infrastructure mode because they require access to the WLAN in order to access services, devices, and
computers (e.g., file servers, printers, databases).

How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device is an optional device that may come pre-installed in your mobile computer. Under
normal circumstances, it should not be necessary for you to remove or re-install it. The operating system
that your mobile computer comes with has been pre-configured to support the WLAN device.
• Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN device supports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, IEEE802.11g, and
IEEE802.11n.
• The Atheros WLAN device isupports IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, and IEEE802.11g.
• The WLAN device operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz lower, middle, and upper UNII bands.
• Microwave ovens may interfere with the operation of WLAN devices since they operate in the same 2.4 GHz
frequency range as IEEE802.11b/g/n devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with IEEE802.11a
radio which operates in the 5 GHz RF band.
• Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz range may interfere with operation of WLAN devices in
IEEE802.11b/g/n modes. Symptoms of interference include reduced throughput, intermittent disconnects,
and many frame errors. It is HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices be powered off to ensure
proper operation of the WLAN device.
Deactivating/Disconnecting the WLAN Device
Disconnecting the WLAN device may be desired in certain circumstances (to extend battery life) or where
certain environments require it (i.e. hospitals, clinics, airplanes, etc.). The WLAN device can be
deativated by using the Wireless On/Off Switch, and it can be disconnected in Windows using the WLAN
icon in the system tray (Note that disconnecting via the icon in the system tray does not turn off the radio;
it continues to transmit and receive even though it’s not connected.).
BEFORE USING THE WIRELESS LAN DEVICE, YOU MUST FIRST INSTALL CLICKME! TO ENSURE THAT THE
CORRECT SOFTWARE FOR YOUR DEVICE IS INSTALLED. SEE “INSTALLING CLICKME!” ON PAGE 69.
165 Before Using the Optional Wireless LAN
Deactivation Using the Wireless On/Off Switch
The WLAN device can be deactivated quickly and efficiently by toggling the Wireless LAN/Bluetooth
On/Off Switch to the Off position. The switch has no effect on non-Wireless LAN models.

Appendix B: Fingerprint Sensor Device
Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Your system has a fingerprint sensor device at the bottom left below the display screen.
Fingerprint
Sensor Device
Figure 30. Fingerprint sensor
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter a username and password every time you want to:
• Log onto Windows
• Resume from standby mode
• Cancel a password-protected screen saver
• Log into homepages that require a username and password
175
After you have “enrolled” - or registered - your fingerprint, you can simply swipe your fingertip over the
sensor for the system recognize you.
The fingerprint sensor uses Softex OmniPass which provides password management capabilities to
Microsoft Windows operating systems. OmniPass enables you to use a "master password" for all
Windows, applications, and on-line passwords.
OmniPass requires users to authenticate themselves using the fingerprint sensor before granting access to
the Windows desktop. This device results in a secure authentication system for restricting access to your
computer, applications, web sites, and other password-protected resources.
OmniPass presents a convenient graphical user interface, through which you can securely manage
passwords, users, and multiple identities for each user.
Getting Started
This section guides you through the preparation of your system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.
Installing OmniPass
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system, skip this section and go directly to “User
Enrollment” on page 178. You can determine whether OmniPass has already been installed by checking
to see if the following are present:
• The gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in the system tray at the bottom right of the screen.
• The Softex program group in the Programs group of the Start menu
System Requirements
The OmniPass application requires space on your hard drive; it also requires specific Operating Systems
(OS’s). The minimum requirements are as follows:
176 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
• Windows XP Professional operating system
• At least 35 MB available hard disk space
Installing the OmniPass Application
If OmniPass is already installed on your system, go to “User Enrollment” on page 178. Otherwise
continue with this section on software installation.
•
INSTALLATION OF THE APPLICATION REQUIRES THAT YOU HAVE AN EXTERNAL OPTICAL DRIVE ATTACHED TO
YOUR SYSTEM.
•
FOR INSTALLATION, OMNIPASS REQUIRES THAT THE USER INSTALLING OMNIPASS HAVE ADMINISTRATIVE
PRIVILEGES TO THE SYSTEM. IF YOUR CURRENT USER DOES NOT HAVE ADMINISTRATIVE PRIVILEGES, LOG OUT
AND THEN LOG IN WITH AN ADMINISTRATOR USER BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH OMNIPASS INSTALLATION.
To install OmniPass on your system you must:
1
Insert the installation media for the OmniPass application into the appropriate drive. If you are installing from
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, you must find and launch the OmniPass installation program (setup.exe) from the
media.
2
Follow the directions provided in the OmniPass installation program. Specify a location to which you would like
OmniPass installed. It is recommended that you NOT install OmniPass in the root directory (e.g. C:\).
3
Once OmniPass has completed installation you will be prompted to restart you system. Once your system has
rebooted you will be able to use OmniPass. If you choose not to restart immediately after installation, OmniPass
will not be available for use until the next reboot.
4
The installation program automatically places an icon (Softex OmniPass) in the Windows Control Panel as well
as a golden key shaped icon in the taskbar.
Verifying Information about OmniPass
After you have completed installing OmniPass and restarted your system, you may wish to check the
version of OmniPass on your system.
To check the version information of OmniPass:

Once OmniPass has finished uninstalling, reboot your system when prompted.
User Enrollment
Before you can use any OmniPass features you must first enroll a user into OmniPass.
178 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Master Password Concept
Computer resources are often protected with passwords. Whether you are logging into your computer,
accessing your email, e-banking, paying bills online, or accessing network resources, you often have to
supply credentials to gain access. This can result in dozens of sets of credentials that you have to
remember.
During user enrollment a "master password” is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with OmniPass.
Example: A user, John, installs OmniPass on his system (his home computer) and enrolls an OmniPass
user with username “John_01” and password “freq14”. He then goes to his webmail site to log onto his
account. He inputs his webmail credentials as usual (username “John_02” and password “lifebook”), but
instead of clicking [Submit], he directs OmniPass to Remember Password. Now whenever he returns to
that site, OmniPass will prompt him to supply access credentials.
John enters his OmniPass user credentials (“John_01” and “freq14”) in the OmniPass authentication
prompt, and he is allowed into his webmail account. He can do this with as many web sites or password
protected resources he likes, and he will gain access to all those sites with his OmniPass user credentials
(“John_01” and “freq14”). This is assuming he is accessing those sites with the system onto which he
enrolled his OmniPass user. OmniPass does not actually change the credentials of the password protected
resource. If John were to go to another computer without he OmniPass account to access his webmail, he
would need to enter his original webmail credentials (“John_02” and “lifebook”) to gain access. If he
attempts his OmniPass user credentials on a system other than a system he’s enrolled on, he will not gain
access.
179 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
THE ENROLLMENT PROCEDURE ASSUMES YOU HAVE NO HARDWARE AUTHENTICATION DEVICES OR
ALTERNATE STORAGE LOCATIONS THAT YOU WISH TO INTEGRATE WITH OMNIPASS. IF YOU DESIRE
SUCH FUNCTIONALITY, CONSULT THE APPROPRIATE SECTIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT.
Basic Enrollment
The Enrollment Wizard will guide you through the process of enrolling a user. Unless you specified
otherwise, after OmniPass installation the Enrollment Wizard will launch on Windows login. If you do
not see the Enrollment Wizard, you can bring it up by clicking Start on the Windows taskbar; select
Programs; select Softex; click OmniPass Enrollment Wizard.
1
Click Enroll to proceed to username and password verification. By default, the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard
enters the credentials of the currently logged in Windows user.
2
Enter the password you use to log in to Windows. This will become the “master password” for this OmniPass
user. In most cases, the Domain: value will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or
when accessing corporate resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows computer name. Click [Next] to
continue.
3
In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint. Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 181 for additional
information.
4
Next, choose how OmniPass notifies you of various events. We recommend you keep Taskbar Tips on
Beginner mode taskbar tips and Audio Tips on at least Prompt with system beeps only until you get
accustomed to how OmniPass operates. Click [Next] to proceed with user enrollment. You will then see a
Congratulations screen indicating your completion of user enrollment.
5
Click [Done] to exit the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard. You will be asked if you’d like to log in to OmniPass with
your newly enrolled user; click [Yes].
180 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Enrolling a Fingerprint
Enrolling a fingerprint will increase the security of your system and streamline the authentication
procedure.
You enroll fingerprints in the OmniPass Control Center. With an OmniPass user logged in, double-click
the system tray OmniPass icon. Select the User Settings tab and click Enrollment under the User
Settings area. Click Enroll Authentication Device and authenticate at the authentication prompt to start
device enrollment.
1
1.During initial user enrollment, you will be prompted to select the finger you wish to enroll. Fingers that have
already been enrolled will be marked by a green check. The finger you select to enroll at this time will be marked
by a red arrow. OmniPass will allow you re-enroll a finger. If you choose a finger that has already been enrolled
and continue enrollment, OmniPass will enroll the fingerprint, overwriting the old fingerprint. Select a finger to
enroll and click [Next].
2
2.It is now time for OmniPass to capture your selected fingerprint. It may take a several capture attempts before
OmniPass acquires your fingerprint. Should OmniPass fail to acquire your fingerprint, or if the capture screen
times out, click [Back] to restart the fingerprint enrollment process.
Your system has a “swipe” fingerprint sensor. A swipe sensor is small and resembles a skinny elongated
rectangle. To capture a fingerprint, gently swipe or pull your fingertip over the sensor (starting at the second
knuckle) towards yourself. Swiping too fast or too slow will result in a failed capture. The Choose Finger
screen has a [Practice] button; click it to practice capturing your fingerprint. When you are comfortable with how
your fingerprint is captured, proceed to enroll a finger.
3
3. Once OmniPass has successfully acquired the fingerprint, the Verify Fingerprint screen will automatically
appear. To verify your enrolled fingerprint, place your fingertip on the sensor and hold it there as if you were
having a fingerprint captured. Successful fingerprint verification will show a green fingerprint in the capture
window and the text Verification Successful under the capture window.
181 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Using OmniPass
You are now ready to begin using OmniPass. Used regularly, OmniPass will streamline your
authentications.
Password Replacement
You will often use the password replacement function. When you go to a restricted access website (e.g.,
your bank, your web-based email, online auction or payment sites), you are always prompted to enter your
login credentials. OmniPass can detect these prompts and you can teach OmniPass your login credentials.
The next time you go to that website, you can authenticate with your fingerprint to gain access.
OmniPass Authentication Toolbar
After installing OmniPass and restarting, you will notice a dialog you have not seen before at Windows
Logon. This is the OmniPass Authentication Toolbar, and it is displayed whenever the OmniPass
authentication system is invoked. The OmniPass authentication system may be invoked frequently: during
Windows Logon, during OmniPass Logon, when unlocking your workstation, when resuming from
standby or hibernate, when unlocking a password-enabled screensaver, during password replacement for
remembered site or application logins, and more. When you see this toolbar, OmniPass is prompting you
to authenticate.
The Logon Authentication window indicates what OmniPass-restricted function you are attempting. The
icons in the lower left (fingerprint and key) show what authentication methods are available to you.
Selected authentication methods are highlighted while unselected methods are not. When you click the
icon for an unselected authentication method, the authentication prompt associated with that method is
displayed.
When prompted to authenticate, you must supply the appropriate credentials: an enrolled finger for the
fingerprint capture window or your master password for the master password prompt (the key icon).
Remembering a Password
OmniPass can remember any application, GUI, or password protected resource that has a password
prompt.
182 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Using the following procedure, you can store a set of credentials into OmniPass. These credentials will
then be linked to your “master password” or fingerprint.
Go to a site that requires a login (username and password), but do not log in yet. At the site login prompt,
enter your username and password in the prompted fields, but do not enter the site (do not hit [Enter],
[Submit], [OK], or Login). Right-click the OmniPass system tray icon and select Remember Password
from the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will change to a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click the
OmniPass cursor in the login prompt area, but don’t click [Login] or [Submit].
Associating a Friendly Name
After clicking the OmniPass key cursor near the login prompt, OmniPass will prompt you to enter a
“friendly name” for this site. You should enter something that reminds you of the website, the company,
or the service you are logging into. In its secure database, OmniPass associates this friendly name with
this website.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
When OmniPass prompts you to enter a “friendly name” you also have the opportunity to set how
OmniPass authenticates you to this site. There are three effective settings for how OmniPass handles a
remembered site.
The default setting is Automatically click the “OK” or “Submit” button for this password protected
site once the user is authenticated. With this setting, each time you navigate to this site OmniPass will
prompt you for your master password or fingerprint authentication device. Once you have authenticated
with OmniPass, you will automatically be logged into the site.
Less secure is the option to Automatically enter this password protected site when it is activated. Do
not prompt for authentication. Check the upper box to get this setting, and each time you navigate to
this site OmniPass will log you into the site without prompting you to authenticate.
183 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
THIS SETTING IS MORE CONVENIENT IN THAT WHENEVER YOU GO TO A SITE REMEMBERED WITH THIS
SETTING, YOU WILL BYPASS ANY AUTHENTICATION PROCEDURE AND GAIN INSTANT ACCESS TO THE
SITE. BUT SHOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR SYSTEM UNATTENDED WITH YOUR OMNIPASS USER LOGGED IN,
ANYONE USING YOUR SYSTEM CAN BROWSE TO YOUR PASSWORD PROTECTED SITES AND GAIN
AUTOMATIC ACCESS.
If you uncheck both boxes in Settings for this Password Site, OmniPass will prompt you for your master
password or fingerprint authentication device. Once you have authenticated with OmniPass your
credentials will be filled in to the site login prompt, but you will have to click the website [OK], [Submit],
or [Login] button to gain access to the site.
Click Finish to complete the remember password procedure. The site location, the credentials to access
the site, and the OmniPass authentication settings for the site are now stored in the OmniPass secure
database. The OmniPass authentication settings (Settings for this Password Site) can always be changed
in Vault Management.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
Whether or not OmniPass prompts you to authenticate when you return to a remembered site is determined
by Settings for this Password Site and can be changed in Vault Management.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to login to: Windows, remembered web sites, and
all other password protected resources.
With Master Password
Once you return to a site you have remembered with OmniPass, you may be presented with a master
password prompt. Enter your master password and you will be allowed into the site.
184 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
When logging into Windows with a fingerprint device, the fingerprint capture window will now appear
next to the Windows Login screen. Place your enrolled fingertip on the sensor to authenticate. You will
be simultaneously logged into Windows and OmniPass. The capture window will also appear if you have
used Ctrl-Alt-Del to lock a system, and the fingerprint device can be used to log back in as stated above.
IF A MACHINE IS LOCKED AND OMNIPASS DETECTS A DIFFERENT USER LOGGING BACK IN WITH A
FINGERPRINT, THE FIRST USER WILL BE LOGGED OUT AND THE SECOND USER LOGGED IN.
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either for classic login, or for fast user switching and logon
screen to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to Windows. To change this go to Control Panel,
select User Accounts and then click Change the way users log on or off. If your Windows screensaver
is password protected, the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to screensaver password
dialog during resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled
finger.
Password Management
OmniPass provides an interface that lets you manage your passwords. To access this GUI, double-click
the OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; you will be prompted to authenticate.
Once you gain access to Vault Management, click Manage Passwords under Vault Settings. You will
see the Manage Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
You can view the credentials stored for any remembered website by highlighting the desired resource
under Password Protected Dialog and clicking Unmask Values. Should a password be reset, or an
account expire, you can remove stored credentials from OmniPass. Highlight the desired resource under
Password Protected Dialog and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to confirm the password
deletion.
185 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
The two check boxes in Manage Passwords govern whether OmniPass prompts you to authenticate or
directly logs you into the remembered site.
OmniPass will overwrite an old set of credentials for a website if you attempt to use Remember
Password on an already remembered site.
The exception to the above rule is when resetting the Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, the next time you login to Windows, OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” the password with OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt and click OK. Your OmniPass "master password" will still be your Windows password.
OmniPass User Identities
Identities allow OmniPass users to have multiple accounts to the same site (e.g., bob@biblomail.com and
boballen@biblomail.com). If OmniPass did not provide you identities, you would be limited to
remembering one account per site.
To create and manage identities, double-click the OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault
Management; OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Once you gain access to Vault Management,
click Manage Identities under Vault Settings. You can only manage the identities of the currently logged
in OmniPass user
To add a new identity, click New Identity or double-click Click here to add a new identity. Name the
new identity and click [OK], then click [Apply]. You can now switch to the new identity and start
remembering passwords.
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to delete and click [Delete Identity], then click
[Apply].
WHEN YOU DELETE AN IDENTITY, ALL OF ITS ASSOCIATED REMEMBERED SITES AND PASSWORD
PROTECTED DIALOGS ARE LOST.
186 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you want as default and click [Set as Default]; click
[Apply] to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will
automatically be logged in to the default identity for that OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with
which you are logging in if you login using "master password".
Choosing User Identity during Login
To choose your identity during login, type your username in the User Name: field. Press [Tab] and see
that the Domain: field self-populates. Click the Password: field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see
the pull-down menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity to login as, then click OK.
Switch User Identity
To switch identities at any time, right-click the OmniPass system tray icon and click Switch User Identity
from the submenu. The Switch Identity dialog will appear. Select the desired identity and then click OK.
Identities and Password Management
On the Manage Passwords interface of the Vault Management tab of the OmniPass Control Center,
there is a pull-down selection box labeled, Identity. This field lets you choose which identity you are
managing passwords for. When you select an identity here, only those password protected dialogs that are
associated with that identity are shown. You can perform all the functions explained in “Password
Management” on page 185.

Configuring OmniPass
This section gives an overview of both the Export/Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
Exporting and Importing Users
YOU CANNOT IMPORT A USER INTO OMNIPASS IF THERE ALREADY IS A USER WITH THE SAME NAME
ENROLLED IN OMNIPASS.
Using OmniPass Control Center, you can export and import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and enrolled fingerprints for an OmniPass user. All
OmniPass data for a user is backed up to a single encrypted database file. During the import process, the
Windows login of the exported user is required. If the proper credentials cannot be supplied, the user
profile will not be imported.

YOU SHOULD PERIODICALLY EXPORT YOUR USER PROFILE AND STORE IT IN A SAFE PLACE. IF ANYTHING

THE USER PROFILE WAS EXPORTED. YOU WILL NEED USER NAME, PASSWORD, AND DOMAIN.
ARE PROMPTED FOR AUTHENTICATION.
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center, and click Import/Export User under Manage
Users.
Click Exports an OmniPass user profile. OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Upon successfully
authentication, you must name the OmniPass user profile and decide where to save it. An .opi file is
generated, and you should store a copy of it in a safe place.
188 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
This .opi file contains all your user specific OmniPass data, and it is both encrypted and password
protected. This user profile does NOT contain any of your encrypted data files.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
To import an OmniPass user open the OmniPass Control Center, and click Import/Export User under
Manage Users. Click Imports a new user into OmniPass and then select OmniPass Import/Export File
(*.opi) and click Next. OmniPass will then prompt you to browse for the file you had previously exported
(.opi file). When you select the .opi file for importation, OmniPass will prompt you for authentication.
The credentials that will allow a user profile to be imported are the Windows login credentials of the
exported user. They are the credentials that had to be submitted when the user profile was exported. You
will need User Name, Password, and Domain. If you don’t remember the value for Domain, in a PC or
SOHO environment Domain should be your computer name.
OmniPass will notify you if the user was successfully imported.
Things to Know Regarding Import/Export
• Assume you export a local Windows User profile from OmniPass. You want to import that profile
to another machine that has OmniPass. Before you can import the profile, a Windows user with the
same login credentials must be created on the machine importing the profile.
Example: I have a Windows user with the username “Tom” and the password “Sunshine” on my
system. I have enrolled Tom into OmniPass and remembered passwords. I want to take all my
passwords to new system. I export Tom’s OmniPass user profile. I go to my new system and using
the Control Panel I create a user with the username "Tom" and the password "Sunshine". I can now
successfully import the OmniPass user data to the new system.
• If you export an OmniPass-only user, you can import that user to any computer running OmniPass,
provided that a user with that name is not already enrolled in OmniPass.
• If you attempt to import a user profile who has the same name as a user already enrolled in
OmniPass, the OmniPass import function will fail.
189 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
OmniPass Control Center
This section will serve to explain functions within the OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained
earlier.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of three ways:
• Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in the Windows taskbar (typically in the lowerright corner of the desktop)
• Click the Start button; select the Programs group; select the Softex program group; and click the
OmniPass Control Center selection.
• Open the Windows Control Panel (accessible via Start button --> Settings --> Control Panel) and
double-click the Softex OmniPass icon.
User Management
The User Management tab has two major interfaces: Add/Remove User and Import/Export User.
Import/Export User functionality is documented in “Exporting and Importing Users” on page 188.
Add/Remove User functionality is straightforward.
If you click Adds a new user to OmniPass you will start the OmniPass Enrollment Wizard. The
Enrollment Wizard is documented in “User Enrollment” on page 178.
If you click Removes a user from OmniPass, OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Authenticate
with the credentials (or enrolled fingerprint) of the user you wish to remove. OmniPass will prompt you
to confirm user removal. Click OK to complete user removal.
REMOVING A USER WILL AUTOMATICALLY DESTROY ALL OMNIPASS DATA ASSOCIATED WITH THAT USER.
ALL IDENTITIES AND CREDENTIALS ASSOCIATED WITH THE USER WILL BE LOST.
IF YOU’RE SURE YOU WANT TO REMOVE THE USER, WE RECOMMEND YOU EXPORT THE USER PROFILE.
190 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
User Settings
The User Settings tab has four interfaces: Audio Settings, Taskbar Tips, and Enrollment. User settings
allow users to customize OmniPass to suit their individual preferences. Under User Settings (Audio
Settings and Taskbar Tips) you can set how OmniPass notifies the user of OmniPass events (e.g.,
successful login, access denied, etc.). The details of each setting under the Audio Settings and Taskbar
Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. For the procedure to enroll and authentication
device refer to Chapter 2.3. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll Authentication Device, and
authenticate with OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition device in the Select Authentication
Device screen (it should already be marked by a green check if you have a finger enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found in the System Settings tab. With these options you
can specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as the current user, will do just as it says; during
Windows login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your Windows login credentials. If the user
logging into Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login no one will be logged on to
OmniPass. This setting is appropriate for an office setting or any setting where users must enter a
username and password to log into a computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login
once you have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in
User from the right-click menu.
191 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
Troubleshooting
You cannot use OmniPass to create Windows users. You must first create the Windows user, and you will
need administrative privileges to do that. Once the Windows user is created, you can add that user to
OmniPass using the same username and password
Cannot add Windows users to OmniPass
If you experience difficulties adding a Windows user to OmniPass, you may need to adjust your local
security settings. You can do this by going to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local
Security Settings. Expand Local Policies, expand Security Options, and double-click Network
Access: Sharing and Security Model for Local Accounts. The correct setting should be Classic Local Users Authenticate as Themselves.
Cannot add a User with a Blank Password to OmniPas
If you experience difficulties adding a user with a blank password to OmniPass, you may need to adjust
your local security settings. First attempt the procedure explained in the Cannot add Windows user to
OmniPass section. If the difficulties persist, then try the following procedure.
Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, and Local Security Settings. Expand Local
Policies, expand Security Options, and double-click Accounts: Limit local account use of blank
passwords to console login only. This setting should be set to Disabled.
Dialog appears after OmniPass authentication during Windows Logon
After installing OmniPass on your system, you can choose to logon to Windows using OmniPass. You
authenticate with OmniPass (via master password, or an enrolled security device) and OmniPass logs
you into Windows. You may, during this OmniPass authentication, see a Login Error dialog box.
This dialog box occurs when OmniPass was unable to log you into Windows with the credentials
supplied (username and password). This could happen for any of the following reasons:
• Your Windows password has changed
• Your Windows account has been disabled
192 - Introducing the Fingerprint Sensor Device
If you are having difficulties due to the first reason, you will need to update OmniPass with your
changed Windows account password. Click Update Password and you will be prompted with a dialog
to reconfirm your password.
Enter the new password to your Windows user account and click OK. If the error persists, then it is
unlikely the problem is due to your Windows user account password changing.
