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.

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 Tablet PC. Pressing [F9] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will
increase the volume of your Tablet PC.
• 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.

Boot Sequence
The procedure for starting-up your Tablet PC is termed the Bootup sequence and involves your Tablet
PC’s BIOS. When your LifeBook is first turned on, the main system memory is empty, and it needs to find
instructions to start up your Tablet PC. This information is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up
or restart your Tablet PC, it goes through a boot sequence which displays a Fujitsu logo until your
operating system is loaded. During booting, your Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC.
• You restart your Tablet PC from the Windows Shut Down dialog box.
• The software initiates a system restart. Example: When you install a new application.

Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC may be controlled from settings made in your operating system, prebundled power management application, or from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
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 Tablet PC into 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 Tablet PC is active, the Power/Suspend/Resume button can be used to manually put the Tablet
PC into Sleep mode. Push the Power/Suspend/Resume button when the Tablet PC is active, but not
actively accessing anything, and immediately release the button.
If your Tablet PC is suspended, pushing the Power/Suspend/Resume button returns your Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC is fully operational. If the indicator is visible and
flashing, your Tablet PC is in Sleep mode. If the indicator is not visible, the power is off or your Tablet PC.
Sleep Mode
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 Tablet PC can be put in sleep mode by:
• Pressing the Power/Suspend/Resume button when your system is turned on.
72 - Power Management
• Selecting “Sleep” after clicking [Start] and selecting the small arrow at the bottom right of the
window.
• Timing out from lack of activity.
• Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery Warning condition.
Your Tablet PC’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 Sleep mode, your Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC will not resume.
■
IF RUNNING YOUR TABLET PC ON BATTERY POWER, BE AWARE THAT THE BATTERY CONTINUES TO
DISCHARGE WHILE YOUR TABLET PC IS IN SLEEP MODE, THOUGH NOT AS QUICKLY AS WHEN FULLY
OPERATIONAL.
■
DISABLING THE POWER/SUSPEND/RESUME BUTTON PREVENTS IT FROM BEING USED TO PUT THE
TABLET PC INTO SLEEP OR HIBERNATION (SAVE-TO-DISK) MODE. THE BUTTON RESUME FUNCTION
CANNOT BE DISABLED.
■
THE SLEEP OR HIBERNATION 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 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 TABLET PC IS ACTIVELY ACCESSING INFORMATION WHEN YOU ENTER THE SLEEP OR HIBERNATION MODE, CHANGES TO OPEN FILES ARE NOT LOST. THE FILES ARE LEFT OPEN AND MEMORY IS
KEPT ACTIVE DURING SLEEP MODE OR THE MEMORY IS TRANSFERRED TO THE INTERNAL HARD DRIVE
DURING HIBERNATION MODE.
THE MAIN ADVANTAGE OF USING HIBERNATION IS THAT POWER IS NOT REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN YOUR
DATA. THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT IF YOU WILL BE LEAVING YOUR TABLET PC 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.
73 - Power Management
Hibernation (Save-to-Disk) Feature
The Hibernation feature saves the contents of your Tablet PC’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
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).
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 Tablet PC 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.
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 Restart from the list.
TURNING OFF YOUR LIFEBOOK TABLET PC WITHOUT EXITING WINDOWS OR TURNING ON YOUR SYSTEM
WITHIN 10 SECONDS OF THE SYSTEM 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 Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC to complete its operations
and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The proper sequence is:
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.
If you are going to store your Tablet PC for a month or more, see Care and Maintenance Section.

User-Installable Features
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook Tablet PC has a Lithium ion battery that provides power for operating your system 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 TABLET PC. IT MAY DAMAGE YOUR AC ADAPTER, OPTIONAL
AUTO/AIRLINE ADAPTER, ANOTHER BATTERY OR YOUR TABLET PC ITSELF. IT MAY ALSO PREVENT
OPERATION OF YOUR SYSTEM 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
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.
OR HARD DRIVE USAGE MAY ALSO HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON BATTERY LIFE.
• 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
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)
PROPERLY.
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 Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC is in use
while the battery is charging. If you want to charge the battery more quickly, put your Tablet PC into Sleep
mode, or turn it off while the adapter is charging the battery. (See Power Management on page 72 for more
information on Sleep 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 Tablet PC will go into Sleep mode. There is no guarantee that your data will be saved
once the Tablet PC reaches this point.
■
■
ONCE THE LOW BATTERY NOTIFICATION MESSAGE APPEARS, YOU NEED TO SAVE ALL YOUR ACTIVE
DATA AND PUT YOUR LIFEBOOK TABLET PC INTO SLEEP 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 SLEEP MODE THERE MUST ALWAYS BE AT LEAST ONE POWER SOURCE ACTIVE. IF
LIFEBOOK TABLET PC IS IN SLEEP MODE, ANY DATA
THAT HAS NOT BEEN SAVED TO THE HARD DRIVE WILL BE LOST.
YOU REMOVE ALL POWER SOURCES WHILE YOUR
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Sleep mode. Once your
Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC 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 Tablet PC.
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 31):

IP Address
An identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP network. Networks using the TCP/IP protocol
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

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.
Figure 43. Ad Hoc Mode Network
163 Before Using the Optional Wireless LAN
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
Infrastructure mode refers to a wireless network architecture 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 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.
• The wireless LAN devices support IEEE802.11a, IEEE802.11b, IEEE802.11g, and IEEE802.11n.
• The WLAN devices operate 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
deactivated 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 71.
