DATA SECURITY
Your LifeBook 600 Series has a built-in hardware control password security feature that
allows you to protect the data stored in the
notebook from unauthorized access. Your
operating system and some applications have
software control password security features
that allow you to protect all or portions
of the data stored in the notebook from
unauthorized access.
Hardware Data Security Features
When you are using your notebook’s built-in
hardware control password to gain access to the
notebook the actual password will not ap pear
on the screen. This is a safety precaution. The
hardware control security parame ters are set
15
S e c t i o n
O n e
from the BIOS setup utility. (See Security Menu
on pages 81-85 for more information on setting
and clearing passwords and enabling and
disabling built-in security features.)
Software Data Security Features
The operating system and some applications
have security features that are independent of
the built-in hardware protection features that
are controlled from the BIOS. See your software
documentation for more information about
these features.
CAUTION
Make sure you memorize your passwords,
both hardware and software. If you forget,
you may not be able to use the notebook,
and you will have to contact your service
provider and arrange to have them reset
the hardware system password. See your
software manuals for what to do if you
forget your software security password(s).
16
CAUTION
Software security feature passwords may
not be the same as the hardware security
passwords. Be sure you know which
features are controlled from software
and which from hardware or you may
lock yourself out of your own data or
lock up your hardware and not be able
to operate your notebook.

S e c t i o n
■
■
■
T w o
When used at temperatures that exceed a
low of 5°C or a high of 35°C. High 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.)
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.
When using a high cur rent device such as a
modem, a LAN card,the CD-ROM drive, or
the hard drive frequently.
Using the AC adapter will conserve your

Using
Recharging the Batteries
If you want to check the condition of either the
internal Lithium ion Smart battery or the external Lithium ion Smart battery, check the Battery
Level indicators located on the Status Indicator
panel. These indicators change as the battery
levels change. Battery 1 is the internal Lithium
ion Smart battery and Battery 2 is the external
Lithium ion Smart battery. (Figure 2-3 on page
23.) You can also check the PowerPanel toolbar.
(See pages 43-47.)
The Lithium ion batteries are recharged internally using the AC adapter or auto/airline
adapter. To recharge the batteries:
■
■
■
Make sure the battery to be charged is
installed, then connect the AC adapter or
auto/airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging indicator
to the left of the Battery Level indicator
of the battery to be charged is visible on the
Status Indicator panel.
The percentage charge is shown inside the
Battery Level icon. (Figure 2-4 on page 25.)
Your
LifeBook
600
Series
When two Lithium ion batteries are installed,
the charge/discharge rate of the internal and
external Lithium ion batteries are the same,
when they are connected in parallel and are
both charging and/or discharging at the same
time. Since the rates are the same, one may
finish charging or discharging before the
other if they were not at the same charge le vel
when they were installed and/or the AC or
auto/airline adapter was connected. You can
choose to have the batteries charged in series
instead of in parallel, which will change the
relative charging rates for the two batteries.
There is no memory effect on the Lithium ion
batteries, which means that you do not ne ed to
discharge them completely before recharging. A
single fully discharged Lithium ion Smart bat tery will charge in approximately three (3)
hours when your notebook is Off or in Suspend
mode. The charging time from fully discharged
for two Lithium ion batteries together, is
approximately 5 hours when your notebook is
Off or in Suspend mode.Of course partially
charged batteries will not take as long to charge.
The charge times will be significantly longer if
your notebook is in use while the batteries are
charging (from approximately nine (9) hours
for one battery to approximately 15 hours for
two batteries with normal operating levels).
CAUTION
Using heavy current devices such as LAN
cards or frequent CD-ROM accesses may
prevent charging completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, your notebook beeps about every 15 seconds and the
Battery Level indicator(s) flash. If you do not
respond to the low battery alarm,the batteries
will continue to discharge until they are too low
to operate. When this happens there will be a
multiple beep alarm,the Battery Level indicator
will show dead battery, and your notebook will
go into Suspend mode to try and protect your
data as long as possible. Your power management settings do not affect whether the dead

battery alarm le vel will send your notebook into
Suspend mode,it will not go to Save-to-Disk
mode. (Figure 2-3 on page 23.)
CAUTION
You may not be able to hear the audio
alarms if the volume control is set too
low or is turned off by either hardware
or software but you will still be able to
see the Battery Level indicator(s) flash.
When the low battery alarm occurs you need to
save all your active data and put your notebook
into Suspend mode until you can provide a new
power source. You should provide this power as
soon as possible. The new power source can be
a charged battery or a power adapter, either AC
or auto/airline.
32
CAUTION
When you are in Suspend mode there
must always be at least one power source
active. If you turn off the power with
the power switch, or remove all power
sources, battery, AC adapter, or auto/
airline adapter, while your notebook is in
Suspend mode any data which has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
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 AC adapter, an optional auto/
airline adapter, or a charged battery. Dead
Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status
indicator just like the normal Suspend mode.
Once you have provided power, you will need
to press the Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation. In the Suspend mode, your data can
be maintained for sometime. If a power source
is not provided promptly, the Power indicator
will stop flashing and go out,and you will 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, but the battery trickle charges
under these conditions. If you want to charge
the battery more quickly, put your notebook
into Suspend mode, or turn off your notebook,
while the adapter is charging the battery. (See
Power Off on page 28 for shutdown procedures.)
CAUTION
There is no guarantee that data will not
be lost once your notebook enters the
Dead Battery Suspend mode.

HARD DRIVE
The internal hard drive capacity is dependent
on which model you are using. See Appendix A
(pages 152-156) for model information.
Formatting the Hard Drive
The hard drive inside your notebook is formatted (initialized) at the factory. You do not need
to format it under normal circumstances.
CAUTION
If you reformat the internal hard drive ALL
data including the operating system and
applications software will be erased. Unless
data is copied to floppy disks or other data
storage media it will be permanently lost.
All software will need to be re-installed and
data files restored from your back-up disks.
See the operating system manual for more
information on backing-up your data files.
Your
LifeBook
600
Series
The factory installed software, including
the operating system, can be restored from
the Recovery CD-ROM which came in the
accessories box when you purchased your
notebook. (See Restoring Your Pre-installed
Software from CD-ROM on page 145
for more information.) Any application
software which you have purchased and
installed will have to be re-installed from
the original source. When doing a recovery
remember that you must allocate space
for the Save-to-Disk function if you have
it enabled. (See Setting Up Your Save-toDisk File Allocation on pages 99-100 for
more information.)
POWER MANAGEMENT
Your LifeBook 600 Series has many features for
conserving power. Some power savings features
are automatic and have no user control, such as
those for the internal modem, while others
depend on the user setting the parameters
which best suit their operating needs. Power
Savings features include: turning the display
brightness down; limiting the use of high power
devices; activating an appropriate power savings
profile;and putting your notebook in Suspend
mode when not actually performing an operation. As with all mobile, battery-powered computers,there is a trade-off between performance
and power savings.
Internal power management for your notebook is controlled from settings made in the
BIOS setup utility, PowerPanel by Phoenix
Technologies,and the Windows 95 Control
panel. If no settings have been made in
PowerPanel or the Windows 95 Control
panel,then the BIOS settings will be used.
The PowerPanel and the Windows 95 Control
panel have been pre-set at the factory and will
be active unless you disable them. Complete
descriptions of the BIOS setup utility parameters are found in Section Three of this
guide. Power management parameters are
covered under the Power Savings menu.
(See pages 86-93.)
Some particular power parameters are only
available for setup from one of these places,
others can be changed in any one of them.

by activation of the selected mode. Which
mode is activated depends on the settings of
the BIOS setup utility Power Savings menu.
The default is Suspend mode. (See pages
88-89 for how to select Save-to-Disk mode.)
Figure 2-14 Suspend/Resume Button
Using the Suspend/Resume Button
When your notebook is active, the Suspend/
Resume button, (Figure 1-6 on page 5), can be
used to manually put your notebook into
Suspend mode, or into the Save-to-Disk mode.
Push the Suspend/Resume button, when your
notebook is active but no Access indicators are
42
If your notebook is suspended,pushing the
Suspend/Resume button will return your notebook to active operation at the point it went into
suspension. The Suspend/Resume button is
located next to the Status Indicator panel above
the keyboard of your notebook. (Figure 2-14.)
You can tell whether or not your system is in
Suspend mode by looking at the Power indicator.
(See page 23.) If it is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If it is visible and
flashing, your notebook is in Suspend mode. If it
is not visible, the power is Off, the power is in the
Windows 95 pseudo-off state, or your notebook
is in the Save-to-Disk mode. (See pages 47-48.)
When you receive your LifeBook 600 Series it
will be set for the default which is Suspend mode.
CAUTION
Be sure you know what settings are
active for the Suspend/Resume button
before you use it as misuse can result in
data loss. (See the Power Savings Menu
of the BIOS setup utility, pages 88-89,
for more information.)
POINT
Disabling the Suspend/Resume button
prevents it from being used to put your
notebook in Suspend mode or Save-toDisk mode. The resume function of the
button cannot be disabled.
CAUTION
The Suspend mode or Save-to-Disk
mode should not be used with certain
PC Cards. Check your PC Card
documentation for more information.

Using
POINT
If your notebook is active when you
enter the Suspend mode or Save-to-Disk
mode, changes to open files are not lost.
The files are left open and memory is
kept active during Suspend mode or the
memory is transferred to the internal
hard drive during Save-to-Disk mode.
CAUTION
If you are running your notebook on
battery power, be aware that the battery
continues to discharge while your notebook is in Suspend mode, though not as
fast as when fully operational. With a
fully charged internal Lithium ion Smart
battery the Suspend mode will maintain
your status for 24 hours or more.

PowerPanel
PowerPanel by Phoenix Technologies provides
Windows 95 desktop access to a comprehensive
combination of power management settings
without entering the BIOS setup utility.
The PowerPanel icon looks like an atom with
its cloud of electrons. This icon will open the
PowerPanel menu. You can view the menu in
icon format along the edge of your desktop by
moving the cursor against the edge where you
have chosen to keep your PowerPanel toolbar
and letting it sit there until the toolbar appears.
(The default position for the toolbar is the left
side of the screen, but you can move it to
whichever edge you like by dragging.)
The power management toolbar has ten power
profile choices and six activation choices.
When you switch to AC powered operation the
PowerPanel toolbar will automatically change to
indicate AC power operation and will show the
AC Power profile as active.
The profiles are groups of system settings
designed to fit power operation to specific user
operating conditions. The activations are shortcut ways to turn on specific power management
features of your notebook. Some of the profiles
can be edited and saved from the PowerPanel
application,some can be edited and saved from
the BIOS setup utility and only viewed from
PowerPanel,and some are factory set and can
only be viewed from either PowerPanel or the
BIOS setup utility.
The profile choices are:
(This group is factory set.)
■

The factory set Maximum Power Savings profile
is designed around trade offs of performance
and battery life. For truly maximum battery life
keep the display and volume levels as low as
possible and use the custom settings recommended in Section Three on page 91.
POINT
The AC Power profile is activated
automatically when a power adapter is
being used, unless it is overridden by
another selection made after the adapter
became active. It can be reactivated by
selecting it or activated by selection, even
when operating only on battery power.

Time out from lack of activity with Save-ToDisk mode enabled from the Power Savings
menu of the BIOS setup utility.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores
the file(s) on which you are working, the open
application(s) and any other data required to
support the operation(s) in progress. When the
Save-to-Disk function is activated your notebook saves the contents of the system memory
to a file on the int ernal hard drive,and then
automatically shuts off power to your notebook.
This is the same pseudo-off state as the Windows
95 power off. When you resume operation by
pressing the Suspend/Resume button, you return
to the point in the operation where you left off,
before going into Save-to-Disk mode.
POINT
If power is lost during Save-to-Disk mode
the data will be retrieved automatically as
soon as power is returned.
POINT
When PC Cards or external devices are
in use, Save-to-Disk mode cannot return
you to the exact state prior to suspension
because all of the peripheral devices will
be re-initialized when the system restarts.
47
S e c t i o n
T w o
POINT
The main advantage of using the Save-toDisk function 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
Save-to-Disk mode is that it lengthens the
power down and power up sequences and
resets peripheral devices.
48
POINT
Save-to-Disk mode requires allocating a
significant amount of hard drive capacity
for saving all of system memory, which
reduces your usable disk space. When
you purchase your notebook it will have
space allocated for the memory installed.
If you upgrade the original system by
adding a memory upgrade module
without changing the size of your Saveto-Disk allocation you will get an error
message when you try to activate the
Save-to-Disk mode and it will not work.
Use the PHDISK Utility to increase
the size of the Save-to-Disk file,
SAVE2DSK.BIN. (Refer to Setting Up
Your Save-to-Disk File Allocation on
pages 99-100 for more information.)
If you need help contact your support
representative for recommendations.
Idle Mode
Idle mode is one of the power management
parameters. When Idle mode is enabled the
CPU is put into low-speed operation when
there is no activity (keystroke, pointer action,
sound generation, video display change,
modem transmission or reception, etc.) on
your notebook for 16 seconds. Any activity
will cause the normal operation to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of
the Suspend/Resume button. This parameter is
enabled and disabled in the BIOS setup utility.
(See page 87.)
Standby Mode
Standby mode is one of the power management
parameters. When Standby mode is activated,
your notebook puts the CPU in low-speed operation,shuts off the display and turns off the
hard drive when there is no activity (keystroke,
pointer action, sound generation, video display
change,modem transmission or reception,
etc.) on your notebook for the user selected
time-out period. (See page 88.) Any activity

SETTING UP YOUR
SAVE-TO-DISK FILE ALLOCATION
Your notebook comes with an allocation of space
on the internal hard drive adequate to operate the
Save-to-Disk function for the amount of memory
installed at the factory. If you add a memory
upgrade module or do not use the Save-to-Disk
function and wish to free up the disk space, you
will need to change your allocation. The utility to
change the allocations is PHDISK.EXE and is
activated from the MS-DOS prompt.
PHDISK allows you to perform five different
functions related to the Save-to-Disk space on
your internal hard drive. They are:
1. Allocate a space for the Save-to-Disk function.
2. Remove all space allocation for the Save-toDisk function.
3. Find out details about the hard drive and the
current Save-to-Disk space allocation.
4. Re-allocate space and mark bad blocks in the
space allocated to the Save-to-Disk function
when a disk error has occurred.
5.Find out how much space is needed to
perform the Save-to-Disk function with
the current memory configuration and how
much unused space is available on the
internal hard drive.
The screen will display the amount disk space
needed to perform the Save-to-Disk function
with the current memory configuration and
how much unused space is available on the
internal hard drive.
To find out details about the hard drive and
the current Save-to-Disk space allocation, do
the following:

2. Type CD C:\Fujitsu
3. Type PHDISK /CREATE /FILE
4. Press the Enter key.
116
5. The utility will create a Save-to-Disk file
called SAVE2DSK.BIN in the root directory.
It will be of the minimum size needed to
support the Save-to-Disk function with the
current memory configuration.
If you have had a read or w rite error when you
tried to perform a Save-to-Disk operation you
can re-allocate space to compensate for bad
blocks on your drive. To do this:
1.Go to the MS-DOS prompt.
2. Type CD C:\Fujitsu
3. Type PHDISK /REFORMAT /FILE
4. Press the Enter key.
5. The utility will re-create the Save-to-Disk file
called SAVE2DSK.BIN with the same usable
size and any bad blocks marked.
CAUTION

with the PHDISK Utility or you will
reformat your internal hard drive and
all data, applications and operating
system will be destroyed.

your operating system can generate and an
explanation of each message.Error messages
are marked with an *. Comments in italic type
are suggestions of possible actions for you to
consider or risks resulting from ignoring the
message. The most common errors are marked
with a #. If an error message is displayed that is
not in this list, write it down and check your
operating system documentation both on
screen and in the manual. If you can find no
reference to the message and its meaning is
not clear, contact your support representative
for assistance.
nnnn Cache SRAM Passed – Where nnnn is
the amount of system cache in kilobytes successfully tested by the Power On Self Test (POST).
(This can only appear if you have an SRAM
PC Card installed.)
*Diskette drive A error or Diskette drive B
error – Drive A: or B: is present but fails the
156
BIOS Power On Self Test (POST) diskette tests.
Check to see that the drive is defined with the
proper diskette type in the Utility Setup, (see page
59,) and that the diskette drive is installed correctly, (see pages 103-107). If the disk drive is
properly defined and installed avoid using it and
contact your support representative.
*Extended RAM Failed at offset:nnnn –
Extended memory not working or not configured properly. If you have an installed a memory
upgrade module verify that the module is properly
installed. If it is properly installed you may want
to check your Windows Setup so it is not trying to
use unavailable memory until you can contact
your support representative.
nnnn Extended RAM Passed – Where nnnn
is the amount of memory in kilobytes
successfully tested.
*Failing Bits: nnnn – The hex number nnnn
is a map of the bits at the memory address (in
System, Extended, or Shadow memory) which
failed the memory test.Each 1 (one) in the map
indicates a failed bit. This is a serious fault which
might cause you to lose data if you continue.
Contact your support representative.
*Fixed Disk x Failure or Fixed Disk Controller
Failure – (where x = 1-4) Fixed disk is not
working or not configured properly. This may
mean that the hard drive type identified in your
Setup Utility does not agree with the type
detected by the Power On Self Test (POST).
Run the Setup Utility to check for the hard disk
type settings and cor rect them if necessary. If the
settings are OK and the message appears when
you restart the system there may be a serious fault
which might cause you to lose data if you continue.
Contact your support representative.
*Incorrect Drive A type – run SETUP – Type of
floppy drive A: not correctly identified in Setup.
This means that the floppy disk drive type identified in your Setup Utility does not agree with the
type detected by the Power On Self Test (POST).
Run the Setup Utility to correct the inconsistency.

is corrupted, run the Setup Utility and set all
settings to the default conditions. If you still get
this error, contact your support representative.
#*Operating system not found – Operating
system cannot be located on either drive A: or
drive C: Enter the Setup Utility and see if fixed
disk and drive A: are properly identified and that
the boot sequence is set correctly. Unless you have
changed your installation greatly the operating
system should be on drive C:. If the Setup Utility
is correctly set your hard drive is probably
corrupted and your system may have to
be re-installed from your back up media.
*Parity Check 1 nnnn – Parity error found in
the system bus.BIOS attempts to locate the
address and display it on the screen. If it cannot
locate the address,it displays ???? . This is a

MODEM SETUP AND COMMANDS
OK
The operating system and application software
that is factory installed detects the modem
characteristics and provides the necessary command strings to operate the modem. The internal modem operation is controlled by generic
AT commands from the operating system and
application software. The standard long form
result codes may, in some cases, be displayed on
your screen to keep you informed of the actions
of your modem. The operating system and
application software may suppress display of
the result codes. Examples of result codes are:
NO CARRIER
NO DIALTONE
CONNECT 56000
(Connection complete at 56,000 bps.)
ERROR
FAX
RING (This means an incoming call.)
BUSY
NO ANSWER
When using the internal modem with applications which are not factory installed see the
application documentation.
RESTORING YOUR PRE-INSTALLED
SOFTWARE FROM CD-ROM
To restore your pre-installed software from the
