Touchpad Pointing Device
The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your
LifeBook notebook. It is used to control the movement
of the pointer to select items on your display panel. The
Touchpad is composed of a cursor control, a left and
right button, and a scrolling/fingerprint sensor. The
cursor control works the same way a mouse does, and
moves the cursor around the display. It only requires
light pressure with the tip of your finger. The left and
right buttons function the same as mouse buttons. The
actual functionality of the buttons may vary depending
on the application that is being used. The scrolling
sensor allows you to navigate quickly through pages,
without having to use the scroll bars. (Figure 2-15)
immediately release it. You also have the option to
perform the clicking operation by tapping lightly on the
Touchpad once. (Figure 2-12)
Figure 2-12 Clicking methods
DOUBLE-CLICKING
The scrolling sensor also acts as a fingerprint sensor. For information on using the
fingerprint sensor, refer to “Fingerprint
Sensor Device” on page 99.
CLICKING
Clicking means pushing and releasing a button. To leftclick, move the cursor to the item you wish to select,
press the left button once, and then immediately release
it. To right-click, move the mouse cursor to the item you
wish to select, press the right button once, and then
Double-clicking means pushing and releasing the left
button twice in rapid succession. This procedure does
not function with the right button. To double-click,
move the cursor to the item you wish to select, press
the left button twice, and then immediately release it.
You also have the option to perform the double-click
operation by tapping lightly on the Touchpad twice.

BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting your notebook is termed the
Boot sequence and involves your notebook’s BIOS.
When your 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 the 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 LifeBook notebook from the Windows Shut Down dialog box.
■ The software initiates a system restart.
HARD DISK DRIVE PASSWORDS
To provide additional data security, you can assign passwords to your hard disk drive. This feature is managed

forget your User and Master hard disk
passwords, Fujitsu Computer Systems will
not be able to reset it. You may lose data
and have to replace your system board or
hard disk drive.
BIOS SETUP UTILITY
The BIOS Setup Utility is a program that sets up the
operating environment for your notebook. Your BIOS is
set at the factory for normal operating conditions, therefore there is no need to set or change the BIOS’ environment to operate your notebook.
The BIOS Setup Utility also allows you to configure such
features as the System Data Security feature parameters,
such as passwords.

■
■
26
If you reject the license agreement you’ll
be asked to review the license agreement
for information on returning to Windows
or to shut down your notebook.
You cannot use your notebook until you
have accepted the License Agreement. If
you stop the process your notebook will
return to the beginning of the Windows
Welcome Process, even if you shut your

Power Management
Your LifeBook notebook has many options and features
for conserving battery power. Some of these features
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your LifeBook
notebook may be controlled from settings made in your
operating system.
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 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.

Timing out from lack of activity.
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your LifeBook notebook’s system memory typically
stores the file(s) on which you are working, open application(s) information, and any other data required to
support the operation(s) in progress. When you resume
operation from Standby mode, your LifeBook 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 LifeBook notebook will not resume.
■
If you are 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 Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
LifeBook notebook in Standby or Saveto-Disk mode. The resume function of
the button cannot be disabled.
■
The Standby or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) 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 re-starts.
■
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 the Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) function is that
power is not required to maintain your
data. This is particularly important if you
will be leaving your LifeBook 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.
■
Your system is set to use the Max Battery power scheme when running on
battery power. If you change the power
scheme to a different profile, your battery life may vary.
POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON
When your LifeBook notebook is active, the Power/
Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put
your notebook into Standby mode. Push the Power/
Suspend/Resume button when your notebook is active,
but not actively accessing anything, and immediately
release the button. You will hear two short beeps and
your system will enter Standby mode.
If your notebook is in standby, pushing the Power/
Suspend/Resume button will return your notebook to
active operation. You can tell whether or not your
system is in Standby mode by looking at the Power indicator which is part of the Power/Suspend/Resume
button. (See Figure 2-8 on page 13 for location) If the
indicator is visible and not flashing, your LifeBook notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is both visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Standby mode. If the
indicator is not visible at all, the power is off or your
notebook is in Save-to-Disk (Hibernation) mode. (See
Hibernation (Save-to-disk) Feature on page 28 for more
information)
STANDBY MODE
Standby mode saves the contents of your LifeBook notebook’s system memory during periods of inactivity by
maintaining power to critical parts. This mode will turn
off the CPU, the display, the hard drive, and all of the
other internal components except those necessary to
maintain system memory and allow for restarting. Your
LifeBook notebook can be put in Standby mode by:
■
■
Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when
your system is turned on.
Selecting Standby from the Windows Shut Down
menu.

Lithium ion Battery
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion
battery that provides power for operating your notebook when no external power source is available. The
rechargeable battery is durable and long lasting, but
should not be exposed to extreme temperatures, high
voltages, chemicals or other hazards. For information
on maximizing your battery life, refer to the section
entitled “Power Management” on page 27.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
■
Your system is set to use the Max Battery power
scheme when running on battery power. If you change
the power scheme to a different profile, your battery
life may vary.
When used at temperatures that exceed a low of
5°C (40°F) or a high of 35°C (95°F). 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. (See Battery Charging Indicator on
page 13 for more information)
When using a high current device such as an external
modem, DVD drive, or hard drive, using the AC
adapter will help conserve your battery life.
■
■
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current into the bad battery.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash.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).
Actual battery life will vary based on
factors such as screen brightness,
applications, features, power management
settings, battery condition and other
customer preferences. External DVD/CDRW, DVD- writer, or hard drive usage may
also have a significant impact on battery
life. Battery charging capacity is reduced as
the battery ages. If your battery is running
low quickly, you should replace it.
32
RECHARGING THE BATTERY
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Status 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. To recharge the battery make sure the
battery that needs to be charged is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the AC adapter.
Make sure the Battery Charging indicator
and the percentage charge is displayed by
the Battery Status icon 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 27 for more information on
Standby mode and shutdown procedure)
Using high current devices such as an
external modem or frequent external
optical drive accesses may prevent
complete charging.
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 LifeBook notebook will go into Standby
mode. There is no guarantee that your data will not be
lost once the notebook reaches this point.
Note that you can change the state in which the battery
goes into Standby mode in the Power properties of the
Control Panel.
To prevent data loss, you should save all
active data and put your notebook into
Standby mode when the low battery
message appears, until you can provide a
new power source. When you are in
Standby mode, there must be at least one
power source active. If you turn off the
power with the power button, or remove
all power sources while your notebook is
in Standby mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
You should provide AC power to your
notebook as soon as possible.
Q2010.book Page 33 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
User-Installable Features
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Standby mode. Once your
LifeBook notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend
mode you will be unable to resume operation until you
provide a source of power from an AC adapter. Once
you have provided power, you will need to press the
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 LifeBook notebook while the
adapter is charging the battery.
Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel displays the battery status via
the Battery Status indicator to show the charge level
available in that battery. If the display is flashing red, it
means that the battery is damaged and must be replaced
so it does not damage any other parts of your LifeBook
notebook.

Before Using the Wireless LAN
This manual describes the procedures required to properly set up and configure the integrated Wireless LAN
Mini-PCI device (referred to as "WLAN device" in the
rest of the manual). Before using the WLAN device, read
this manual to ensure correct operation. Keep the
manual in a safe place for future reference.
Wireless LAN Devices Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing the
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (WM3945ABG) Network
Connection (802.11a+b/g)
Characteristics of the WLAN Device
■
■
The WLAN device is a Mini-PCI card attached to the
main board of the mobile computer.
The WLAN device operates in license-free RF bands,
eliminating the need to procure an FCC operating
license. The WLAN operates in the 2.4GHz Industrial,
Scientific, and Medical (ISM) RF band and the lower,
middle, and upper bands of the 5GHz Unlicensed
National Information Infrastructure (UNII) bands.
■
The Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG WLAN device is
capable of three operating modes, IEEE802.11a,
IEEE802.11b and IEEE802.11g.
■
Encoding of data is modulated using Direct Sequence
Spread Spectrum (DSSS) and Complementary Code
Keying (CCK) when the WLAN device is operating in
IEEE 802.11b mode and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) when operating in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode.
■
The WLAN device is Wi-Fi certified and operates at
the maximum data transfer rate of 54 Mbps in
IEEE802.11a or IEEE802.11g mode and 11 Mbps in
IEEE802.11b mode.
■
The WLAN device supports the following encryption
methods - WEP, TKIP, CKIP, and AES encryption.
Figure A-1. Ad Hoc Mode Network

WIRELESS LAN MODES USING THIS DEVICE
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure A-1) "Ad Hoc Mode" refers to a wireless
network where wireless network connectivity between
multiple computers is established without a central
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 (service set identifier), network authentication, and encryption key
settings are identically configured on all computers in
the Ad Hoc network.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure A-2) Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless
network in which devices communicate with wireless or
wired network devices by communicating through an
Access Point. In infrastructure mode, wireless devices
can communicate with each other or with a wired
network. Corporate wireless networks operate in infrastructure mode because they require access to the wired
LAN in order to access computers, devices, and services
such as file servers, printers, and databases.
How to Handle This Device
The WLAN device comes 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.

WIRELESS NETWORK CONSIDERATIONS
■
The WLAN device supports IEEE802.11a/b/g and
operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band and the 5 GHz UNII
bands.
■
Microwave ovens will interfere with the operation of

2.4GHz frequency range that IEEE802.11b/g devices
operate in. Interference by microwaves does not occur
with IEEE802.11a radio which operates in the 5 GHz
RF band.
■
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4GHz frequency range may interfere with the operation of
WLAN devices in IEEE802.11b/g modes. Symptoms of
interference include reduced throughput, intermittent
disconnects, and large amounts of frame errors. It is
HIGHLY recommended that these interfering devices
be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the
WLAN device.

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
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 Points.
Connectivity is accomplished using only client devices
in a peer-to-peer fashion. For details, refer to “Ad hoc
connection” on page 80.
Channel
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate
IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
A data query service that provides a mechanism with
which to translate host names into Internet addresses.
IEEE802.11a
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11a devices operate in the 5 GHz
lower and middle UNII bands.
IEEE802.11b
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 11 Mbps. 802.11b devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
IP address
The logical 32-bit host address defined by the Internet
Protocol that uniquely identifies a computer on a
network. The IP address is usually expressed in dotted
decimal notation.
LAN (Local Area Network)
A LAN or Local Area Network is a computer network
(or data communications network) which is confined to
a limited geographical area.
MAC address (Media Access Control Address)
A MAC address (also called an Ethernet address or IEEE
MAC address) is the 48-bit address (typically written as
twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F,
or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or
colons, e.g., 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which
uniquely identifies a computer that has an Ethernet
interface.
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit)
The maximum size of data which can be transmitted at
one time in networks including the Internet. In an environment whose maximum size of data is too large to
correctly receive data, normal communications can be
restored by setting the size of MTU to a smaller value.
Network key
Data that is used for encrypting data in data communication. The personal computer uses the same network
key both for data encryption and decryption, therefore,
it is necessary to set the same network key as the other
side of communication.
Network name (SSID: Service Set Identifier)
When a wireless LAN network is configured, grouping is
performed to avoid interference or data theft. This
grouping is performed with “Network name (SSID)”. In
order to improve security, the network key is set
allowing no communication unless “Network name
(SSID)” coincides with the network key.
Open system authentication
Null authentication method specified in the 802.11 standard that performs no authentication checks on a wireless client before allowing it to associate.
PPPoE (Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet)
A method of allowing the authentication protocol
adopted in telephone line connection (PPP) to be used
over an Ethernet.
Protocol
A procedure or rule of delivering data among
computers. Ordered data communication is allowed by
making all conditions required for communication
including the method of data transmission/reception
and actions upon communication errors into procedures.

Q2010.book Page 88 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
LifeBook Q2000 Series User’s Guide
Shared key authentication
802.11 network authentication method in which the AP
sends the client device a challenge text packet that the
client must then encrypt with the correct WEP key and
return to the AP. If the client has the wrong key or no
key, authentication will fail and the client will not be
allowed to associate with the AP. Shared key authentication is not considered secure, because a hacker who
detects both the clear-text challenge and the same challenge encrypted with a WEP key can decipher the WEP
key.
SSID (Service Set Identifier)
Service Set Identifier, a 32-character unique identifier
attached to the header of packets sent over a WLAN that
acts as a password when a mobile device tries to connect
to the BSS. The SSID differentiates one WLAN from
another, so all access points and all devices attempting to
connect to a specific WLAN must use the same SSID. A
device will not be permitted to join the BSS unless it can
provide the unique SSID. Because the SSID is broadcast
in plain text, it does not supply any security to the
network.
Subnet mask
TCP-IP network is controlled by being divided into
multiple smaller networks (subnets). IP address consists
of the subnet address and the address of each computer.
Subnet mask defines how many bits of IP address
comprise the subnet address. The same value shall be set
among computers communicating with each other.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet
Protocol)
A standard protocol of the Internet.
Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi, or Wireless Fidelity, is a set of standards for wireless local area networks (WLAN) based on the IEEE
802.11 specifications. Certified products can use the official Wi-Fi logo, which indicates that the product is
interoperable with any other product also showing that
logo.

IP address information
ABOUT IP ADDRESSES
IP addressing is much more complicated
than can be briefly explained in this
document. You are advised to consult with
your network administrator for additional
information.
If IP address is unknown, set IP address as follows,
or,
If you have an access point (DHCP server) on the
network, set the IP address as follows:
[Obtain an IP address automatically]
A DHCP server is a server that
automatically assigns IP addresses to
computers or other devices in the network.
There is no DHCP server for the AdHoc
network.
If the IP address is already assigned to the computer in
the network, ask the network administrator to check the
IP address to be set for the computer.
If no access point is found in the network:
An IP address is expressed with four values in the range
between 1 and 255.
Set the each computer as follows: The value in parentheses is a subnet mask.
<Example>
Computer A: 192.168.100.2 (255.255.255.0)
Computer B: 192.168.100.3 (255.255.255.0)

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, websites, and other passwordprotected 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
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the notification area at the bottom right of the screen.
The presence of 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:
■
■
Windows XP Home Edition or 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 96. Otherwise continue with
this section on software installation.
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.
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.
During OmniPass user enrollment a "master password”
is created for the enrolled user. This master password
“replaces” all other passwords for sites you register with
OmniPass.
To check the version information of 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.
1. From the Windows Desktop, double-click the keyshaped OmniPass icon in the taskbar (usually
located in the lower right corner of the screen),
or,
Click the Start button, select Settings, and click
Control Panel (if you are using Windows XP you
will see the Control Panel directly in the Start menu;
click it, then click Switch to Classic View). Doubleclick Softex OmniPass in the Control Panel, and the
OmniPass Control Center will appear. If it does not
appear, then the program is not properly installed,
or,
Click the Start button, select Programs, and from
the submenu select the Softex program group, from
that submenu click OmniPass Control Center.
2. Select the About tab at the top of the OmniPass
Control Panel. The About tab window appears with
version information about OmniPass.
Uninstalling OmniPass
For uninstallation, OmniPass requires that
the user uninstalling 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 uninstallation.
To remove the OmniPass application from your system:
1. Click Start on the Windows taskbar. Select Settings,
and then Control Panel.
2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
3. Select OmniPass, and then click Change/Remove.
4. Follow the directions to uninstall the OmniPass
application.
5. 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.
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.
96
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 websites 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
an Internet cafe 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 where he
enrolled that OmniPass user, he will not gain access.
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.
Q2010.book Page 97 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
3. In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint.
Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 97 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].
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 notification area 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. 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. 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. 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.
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.
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
97
Q2010.book Page 98 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
LifeBook Q2000 Series Notebook
notification area icon and select Remember Password
from the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will
change to a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click this
OmniPass cursor in the login prompt area, but do not
click the [Login] or [Submit] button.
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.
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.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to
login to: Windows, remembered websites, and all other
password protected resources.
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.
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.
98
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.
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 notification area. 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
Q2010.book Page 99 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to confirm
the password deletion.
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 the resetting of your
Windows password. If your password is reset in
Windows, then the next time you login to Windows,
OmniPass will detect the password change and prompt
you to “Update” or “Reconfirm” your password with
OmniPass. Enter your new Windows password in the
prompt(s) and click OK and 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 notification area. 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

and click [OK], then click [Apply]. You can now switch
to the new identity and start remembering passwords.
field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see the pulldown menu in the Identity: field. Select the identity you
wish to login as and then click OK to login.
Switch User Identity
To switch identities at any time, right-click the
OmniPass notification area 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 98.
CONFIGURING OMNIPASS
This section gives an overview of both the Export/
Import function and the OmniPass Control Center.
Exporting and Importing Users
Using the OmniPass Control Center, you can export and
import users in and out of OmniPass. The export
process backs up all remembered sites, credentials, and
any 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.
■
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.
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:
■
You should periodically export your user
profile and store it in a safe place. If
anything happens to your system, you
can import your OmniPass profile to a
new system and have all your remembered settings and fingerprints instantly.
You don't forget the Windows login
credentials when exporting. When you
examine the importation, you are
prompted 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.
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 authenti99
Q2010.book Page 100 Wednesday, May 24, 2006 1:36 PM
LifeBook Q2000 Series Notebook
cation, 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.
OMNIPASS CONTROL CENTER
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.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of
three ways:
This section will serve to explain functions within the
OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained earlier.
■
Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in
the Windows taskbar (typically in the lower-right 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 doubleclick the Softex OmniPass icon.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
You cannot import a user into OmniPass if
there already is a user with the same name
enrolled in OmniPass.
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.
100
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 99. 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 96.
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 are sure about removing the user,
we recommend you export the user
profile.
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 authen-

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
ticate 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.
TROUBLESHOOTING
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
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.
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 OmniPass
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.
