Touchpad Pointing Device
An external mouse can be connected to
either the USB port on your LifeBook notebook or the USB or PS/2 ports on the
optional port replicator, and used simultaneously with the Touchpad. However, if
you boot the system with an external
mouse connected the Touchpad will be
disabled or enabled depending on the
specifications in your BIOS settings. (See
Certain S7100 LifeBook notebooks are
equipped with an optional “Quick Point”
button for moving the cursor. For more
information about Quick Point, see
“Optional Quick Point Feature” on
page 17.
The Touchpad pointing device comes built into your
Fujitsu 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,
two left and two right buttons, and a scrolling button.
The purpose of the upper left and right buttons is to
facilitate use of the optional cursor control button.
Certain configurations of the LifeBook
S7100 notebook have an optional fingerprint sensor instead of a scrolling button.
For information on using the optional fingerprint sensor, refer to “Fingerprint Sensor Device” on page 111.
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
button allows you to navigate quickly through pages,
without having to use the scroll bars. (Figure 2-12)

■
If the interval between clicks is too
long, the double-click will not be
executed.
Parameters for the Touchpad can be
adjusted from the Mouse Properties
dialog box located in the Windows
Control Panel.
SCROLLING
Using the Scrolling button allows you to navigate
through a document quickly without using the window’s
scroll bars. This is particularly useful when you are navigating through on-line pages. To use the Scrolling
button, press the crescent shape at the top or bottom of
the button to scroll up or down a page. When you have
reached the desired section of the page, release the
button. (Figure 2-16)
If your system configuration has an
optional fingerprint sensor instead of a
scrolling button, there is no button to click.
Instead, scrolling is performed by the sensor’s motion detector. For information on
using the optional fingerprint sensor, refer
to “Fingerprint Sensor Device” on
page 111.
DRAGGING
Dragging means pressing and holding the left button,
while moving the cursor. To drag, move the cursor to
the item you wish to move. Press and hold the left
button while moving the item to its new location
and then release it. Dragging can also be done using the
Touchpad. First, tap the Touchpad twice over the item
you wish to move making sure to leave your finger on
the pad after the final tap. Next, move the object to its
new location by moving your finger across the
Touchpad, and then release your finger. (Figure 2-15)
Figure 2-16 Scrolling
OPTIONAL QUICK POINT FEATURE
The optional Quick Point device consists of a cursor
control button at the lower center of the keyboard. It is
roughly the same size and shape as a pencil eraser. The
cursor control works the same way a mouse ball does,
and moves the cursor around the display. It only requires
light pressure to move; the more pressure you use, the
faster the cursor will move.
When used with the Quick Point button, the middle
Touchpad button allows you to scroll up and down a
screen. As noted earlier, the purpose of the upper left
and right buttons is to facilitate use of the optional
cursor control button.

Volume Control
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has multiple volume
controls which interact with each other.
Any software that contains audio files will
also contain a volume control of its own. If
you install an external audio device that
has an independent volume control, the
hardware volume control and the software
volume control will interact with each
other. It should be noted that if you set
your software volume to Off, you will
override the external volume control
setting.
CONTROLLING THE VOLUME
■
The volume can be controlled in several different
ways:
■
Volume can be set from within the Volume Control
on the Taskbar.
■
Volume can be controlled with the F8 and F9 function
keys. Pressing [F8] repeatedly while holding [Fn] will
decrease the volume of your notebook. Pressing [F9]
repeatedly while holding [Fn] will increase the volume
of your notebook.
■
Volume can be 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.
Volume muting can be toggled on and off by pressing
[F3] while holding the [Fn} button.
We recommend that you experiment with the various
volume controls to discover the optimal sound level.

When you receive your LifeBook notebook, the security
panel application is pre-installed without any passwords.
The following sections provide detailed information on
your security panel, and how to set, change or remove
passwords.
Numbered Buttons
Use these buttons to enter your password.
Enter Button
After entering the button strokes, push this button to
enter the password into the LifeBook notebook.
PASSWORDS
The user and supervisor password may be set on this
notebook. A supervisor password is typically the same
for all LifeBook notebooks in a working group, office, or
company to allow for system management. Individual
LifeBook notebooks in a group environment should not
use a common password. A password consists of one to
five button strokes plus the enter button. A valid stroke
consists of pushing one or up to four buttons simultaneously. The following are valid button strokes:
Pushing [4] by itself
Pushing [2] and [3] at the same time
■ Pushing [1], [2], and [4] at the same time
■
Pushing [1], [2], [3], and [4] at the same time
The following are valid passwords. The numbers
within braces ({ }) are button strokes using more
than one button.
■
■
■
■
■
{[2]+[3]}, [1], [enter]
[4], [enter]
{[1]+[3]}, {[2]+[3]+[4]}, [1], [4], [2], [enter]
Setting Passwords
When shipped from the factory, no passwords are set.
You have a choice of having no password or setting a
supervisor and user password. You must set the supervisor password before the user password.
■
■
The supervisor password is used to
bypass the user password in case the
user password is forgotten. A supervisor
password alone will not lock the system.
You must set both the supervisor and
user passwords for the security panel to
work.
Setting Supervisor Password
You must have set a supervisor password before setting
any user passwords. The supervisor password can bypass
the user password.
1. Go to the Start menu.
2. Click on Run.
3. Type in:
C:\Program Files\Fujitsu\
Security Panel Application\
Supervisor\FJSECS.EXE,
then press [Enter]
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to set the
Supervisor password.

PRECAUTIONS
OPERATING YOUR LIFEBOOK SECURITY/
APPLICATION PANEL
The security lock feature is in effect both when the system
resumes from Off or standby state. You always need to
push the Suspend /Resume button to input the user password. Your system will not begin the boot sequence
without entering your supervisor/user password.
From Off State
1. Turn on your system.
2. When the Security Indicator flashes, enter the password and press Enter button.
For example, if the password is 22222,
Press Button Number 2 five times and press Enter
button.
The LifeBook notebook will boot to normal operation.
From Standby State
1. Press your Power/Suspend/Resume button.
2. When the Security Indicator flashes, enter the password and press Enter button.
The notebook should resume normal operation.
Incorrect Password Entry
If an invalid supervisor or user password is entered three
times in succession, the system will “beep” for about one
minute. If a valid password is entered within a minute
(while system beeps), the beeping will stop and the notebook will resume normal operation. If no password (or
an invalid one) is entered while the system beeps, the
system will return to its previous locked state (standby
or off) and the Security Indicator will go off. To reactivate the notebook after a password failure, you must
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button, then enter a
correct password.
22
Opening and Closing the Cover
Closing the cover automatically places the notebook into
standby mode. Opening the cover does not automatically place the notebook into normal operation. Instead,
you must enter the proper security password after
pushing the Power/Suspend/Resume button.
Low Battery Operations
If your LifeBook notebook has low battery, pushing the
Power/Suspend/Resume button only turns on the Security Indicator. Your notebook does not unlock, the Security Indicator turns off after one minute. To resume
normal operation, first attach a power supply to the
notebook. Then you may unlock the notebook.

Starting Your
LifeBook Notebook
POWER ON
Power/Suspend/Resume Button
The Power/Suspend/Resume button is used to turn on
your LifeBook notebook from its off state. Once you
have connected your AC adapter or charged the internal
Lithium ion battery, you can power on your LifeBook
notebook. (See figure 2-4 on page 6 for location)
When you turn on your LifeBook
notebook be sure you have a power
source. This means that at least one
battery is installed and charged, or that the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter is connected
and has power.
BOOT SEQUENCE
The procedure for starting up your notebook is called
the Bootup sequence and involves your notebook’s
BIOS. When your LifeBook notebook is first turned on,
the main system memory is empty, and it needs to find
instructions to start up your notebook. This information
is in the BIOS program. Each time you power up or
restart your notebook, it goes through a boot sequence
which displays a Fujitsu logo until your operating system
is loaded. During booting, your notebook is performing
a standard boot sequence including a Power On Self Test
(POST). If the 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:
■
■
■
To turn on your LifeBook notebook from its off state,
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button, located above
the keyboard, the right-most button in the array. When
you are done working you can either leave your LifeBook
notebook in Standby mode, (See Standby Mode on
page 32 for more information), or you can turn it off (See
Power Off on page 33 for more information).
Do not carry your LifeBook notebook
around with the power on or subject it to
shocks or vibration, as you risk damaging
your notebook.
When you power on your LifeBook, it will perform a
Power On Self Test (POST) to check the internal parts and
configuration for correct functionality. If a fault is found,
your LifeBook notebook will emit an audio warning and/
or an error message will be displayed. (See Power On Self
Test Messages on page 66 for more information)
Depending on the nature of the problem, you may be able
to continue by starting the operating system or by
entering the BIOS setup utility and revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the Power On Self Test
(POST), your notebook will load your operating system.
HARD DISK DRIVE PASSWORDS
To provide additional security for your data, you can
assign passwords to your hard disk drive(s). This feature
is managed in the system BIOS Setup Utility. See BIOS
Setup Utility below for information about accessing the
utility.
Remember your passwords. If you set and
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 LifeBook 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 configures:
■
Never turn off your LifeBook notebook
during the Power On Self Test (POST) or it
will cause an error message to be displayed
when you turn your LifeBook notebook on
the next time. (See Power On Self Test
Messages on page 66 for more
information)
You turn on the power to your LifeBook notebook.
You restart your notebook from the Windows
Shut Down dialog box.

LifeBook S7100 Notebook
Power Management
Your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook has many options and
features for conserving battery power. Some of these
features are automatic and need no user intervention,
such as those for the internal modem. However, others
depend on the parameters you set to best suit your operating conditions, such as those for the display brightness. Internal power management for your notebook
may be controlled from settings made in your operating
system, pre-bundled power management application, or
from settings made in BIOS setup utility.
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.
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. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6 for location)
If your LifeBook is suspended, pushing the Power/
Suspend/Resume button returns your notebook to active
operation. You can tell whether the system is Suspended
by looking at the Power indicator. (See figure 2-4 on
page 6) If the indicator is visible and not flashing, your
notebook is fully operational. If the indicator is visible
and flashing, your notebook is in Standby mode. If the
indicator is not visible, the power is off or your notebook
is in Hibernation mode. (See Hibernation Feature)
STANDBY MODE
Standby mode in Windows 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 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.
Timing out from lack of activity.
32
■
Allowing the battery to reach the Dead Battery
Warning condition.
Your notebook’s system memory typically stores the file
on which you are working, open application information, and any other data required to support operations
in progress. When you resume operation from Standby
mode, your notebook will return to the point where it left
off. You must use the Power/Suspend/Resume button to
resume operation, and there must be an adequate power
source available, or your notebook will not resume.
■
If you are running your LifeBook notebook on battery power, be aware that
the battery continues to discharge while
your notebook is in Standby mode,
though not as fast as when fully operational.
■
Disabling the Power/Suspend/Resume
button prevents it from being used to
put your LifeBook notebook in Standby
or Hibernation (Save-to-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 restarts.
■
If your LifeBook notebook is actively
accessing information when you enter
the Standby or Hibernation (Save-toDisk) 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.

DISPLAY TIMEOUT
The Video Timeout is one of the power management
parameters. This feature saves power by turning off the
display if there is no keyboard or pointer activity for the
user selected timeout period. Any keyboard or pointer
activity will cause the display to restart automatically.
This feature is independent of the Power/Suspend/
Resume button and can be enabled and disabled in
Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS Setup Utility
on page 29 for more information)
HARD DISK TIMEOUT
The Hard Disk Timeout is another one of the power
management parameters. This feature saves power by
turning off the hard drive if there is no hard drive
activity for the user selected timeout period. Any
attempt to access the hard drive will cause it to restart
automatically. This feature is independent of the Power/
Suspend/Resume button and can be enabled and
disabled in Windows and BIOS setup utility. (See BIOS

USING MEDIA PLAYER ON BATTERY POWER
Since optical drives consume a lot of power, your overall
battery life will be significantly shorter when operating
the optical drive continuously (such as watching a DVD
movie) than during standard operation. Many movies
run-times are longer than your LifeBook notebook can
support on a single charged battery. If you are watching a
DVD movie on battery power you may need to swap in
an additional, charged battery or attach AC power during
the movie to view it in its entirety.
■
■
■
Prolonged use of the optical drive, such
as watching a DVD movie, will greatly
reduce your notebook’s battery life.
Many movie run-times are longer than
your system can support on a single
battery. If you are watching a DVD
movie on battery power you may need
to swap in an additional, charged
battery or attach AC power during the
movie to view it in its entirety.
An additional fully-charged battery is
highly recommended if you will be
watching DVD movies on battery
power. If you don’t have an additional
battery, you may purchase one either
online at www.shopfujitsu.com or by
calling 1-800-FUJITSU.
To Watch a Movie on Battery Power:
1. Have an additional full-charged battery or your AC
adapter ready for use.
2. Start watching your DVD movie.
3. When the low battery warning occurs, immediately
stop the movie and exit the media player.
If you do not stop the media player quickly
and the LifeBook notebook attempts to
auto-suspend (critical battery low state)
the LifeBook notebook will shut down
improperly. If this occurs, you will need to
perform a hard reset and follow the
instructions, if any, presented to you
before the system will reboot.
4. Power down your notebook and replace the
discharged battery with a fully-charged battery. If
you don’t have an additional battery, attach AC
power as soon as you see the low battery warning.
5. Resume your LifeBook notebook by pressing the
Suspend button again. This is not required if you
attached AC power without entering standby mode.
6. Restart your media player, locate and skip to the
chapter of the movie you were last watching.
7. Continue watching your DVD movie.
Some shorter DVD movies may not require
you to swap batteries or attach AC power
to complete them. However, it is best to
be prepared since actual battery life while
operating the optical drive cannot be
guaranteed.

LifeBook S7100 Notebook
Lithium ion Battery
Your LifeBook notebook has a Lithium ion battery that
provides power for operating your notebook when no
external power source is available. The battery is durable
and long lasting, but should not be exposed to extreme
temperatures, high voltages, chemicals or other hazards.
The Lithium ion battery operating time may become
shorter if it is used under the following conditions:
■
■
When used at temperatures that exceeds 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.
(See Battery Charging Indicators on page 13 for more
information)
When using a high current device such as a modem,
Multi-Format DVD Writer, DVD-ROM drive, DVD/
CD-RW combo drive, or the hard drive, using the AC
adapter will conserve your battery life.
Do not leave a faulty battery in your
LifeBook notebook. It may damage your
AC adapter, optional Auto/Airline adapter,
another battery or your notebook itself. It
may also prevent operation of your
notebook by draining all available current
into the bad battery.
■
■
40
Actual battery life will vary based on
screen brightness, applications, features, power management settings, battery condition and other customer
preferences. CD-ROM drive, Multi-Format DVD Writer, DVD/CD-RW drive
combo, or hard drive usage may also
have a significant impact on battery life.
The battery charging capacity is reduced
as the battery ages. If your battery is
running low quickly, you should replace
it with a new one.
Under federal, state, or local law it may
be illegal to dispose of batteries by putting them in the trash. Please take care
of our environment and dispose of batteries properly. Check with your local
government authority for details regarding recycling or disposing of old batteries. If you cannot find this information
elsewhere, contact your support representative at 1-800-8FUJITSU (1-800838-5487)
RECHARGING THE BATTERIES
If you want to know the condition of the primary
Lithium ion battery, check the Battery Level indicator
located on the Status Indicator panel. The indicator
changes as the battery level changes.
The Lithium ion battery is recharged internally using
the AC adapter or Auto/Airline adapter. To recharge the
battery make sure the battery that needs to be charged
is installed in your LifeBook notebook and connect the
AC or Auto/Airline adapter.
Make sure that the Battery Charging
indicator and the percentage charge is
shown inside the Battery Level 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 32 for more information
on Standby mode and shutdown procedure)
Using heavy current devices such as
Modem or frequent DVD/CD-RW/CDROM accesses may prevent charging
completely.
Low Battery State
When the battery is running low, a low battery notification message will appear. If you do not respond to the
low battery message, the batteries will continue to
discharge until they are too low to operate. When this
happens, your notebook will go into Standby mode.
There is no guarantee that your data will be saved once
the notebook reaches this point.
■
Once the low battery notification message appears, you need to save all your
active data and put your LifeBook notebook into Standby mode until you can
provide a new power source. You should
provide a charged battery, an AC power
adapter, or Auto/Airline adapter as soon
as possible.
■
When you are in Standby mode there
must always be at least one power
source active. If you remove all power
sources while your LifeBook notebook is
in Standby mode, any data that has not
been saved to the hard drive will be lost.
S7110.book Page 41 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
User Installable Features
Dead Battery Suspend mode shows on the Status indicator just like the normal Standby mode. Once your
notebook goes into Dead Battery Suspend mode you will
be unable to resume operation until you provide a
source of power either from an adapter, or a charged
battery. Once you have provided power, you will need to
press the Power/Suspend/Resume button to resume
operation.
In the Dead Battery Suspend mode, your data can be
maintained for some time, but if a power source is not
provided promptly, the Power indicator will stop
flashing and go out, meaning that you have lost the data
that was not stored. Once you provide power, you can
continue to use your notebook while an adapter is
charging the battery.

Shorted Batteries
The Status Indicator panel uses a symbol inside the
battery outline of the Battery Level indicator to display
the operating level available in that battery. (See figure 210 on page 12) If this display shows a Shorted Battery, it
means the battery is damaged and must be replaced so it
does not damage other parts of your LifeBook notebook.
REPLACING THE BATTERY
With the purchase of an additional battery, you can have
a fully charged spare to swap with one that is not
charged. There are two ways to swap batteries, coldswapping and hot-swapping:
Cold-swapping Batteries
To cold-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these

(Figure 4-4).
4. Continue to press the latch release button away from
the battery pack, and lift the battery out of the bay.
5. Insert a new battery into the bay. (Figure 4-5)
6. Slide the battery bay release latch back to its original
position to lock the battery into place.
8. Plug in the AC adapter and turn the power on.
Figure 4-5. Installing a Battery
Hot-swapping Batteries
To hot-swap batteries in your battery bay follow these
easy steps:
Be sure to plug in an AC Adapter prior to
removing the battery. There is no bridge
battery present to support the system
while the battery is being replaced. If you
do not use an AC Adapter you will lose
any unsaved files.
1. Plug an AC Adapter into the system and connect it
to a power outlet.
2. Follow steps 3 through 5 in “Cold Swapping
Batteries”.
If the Lithium ion battery connector is not
fully seated, you may not be able to use
your notebook or charge your battery.

The memory upgrade module is not
something you routinely remove from
your notebook. Once it is installed, you
can leave it in place unless you want to
change system memory capacity.
REMOVING A MEMORY UPGRADE MODULE
1. Perform steps 1 through 4 of Installing a Memory
Upgrade Module.
2. Pull the clips sideways away from each side of the
memory upgrade module at the same time.
3. While holding the clips out, remove the module
from the slot by lifting it up and pulling towards the
rear of your notebook. (Figure 4-13)

CHECKING THE MEMORY CAPACITY
Once you have changed the system memory capacity by
replacing the installed module with a larger one, be sure
to check that your notebook has recognized the change.
Check the memory capacity by clicking [Start] ->
Settings -> Control Panel, then double-clicking the
System icon. Select the General tab and check the
amount of memory under “Computer:”.
There may be a variation between the actual memory
size and what is displayed. This is due to the fact that
your system uses a video graphics chip which dynamically allocates system memory to accelerate graphics
performance. Up to 128 MB of memory is dynamically
shared on an as-needed basis using Dynamic Video
Memory Technology (DVMT).
■
Intel shared graphics allocates 8 MB of
the system memory for use as default
video memory. If your system is configured with 512 MB of system memory,
for example, only 504 MB will be displayed in your system information.
■
If the total memory displayed is incorrect, check that your memory upgrade
module is properly installed. (If the module is properly installed and the capacity
is still not correctly recognized, see
Troubleshooting on page 57.

If you use your Fujitsu LifeBook notebook carefully, you
will increase its life and reliability. This section provides
some tips for looking after the notebook and its devices.
■
The system contains components that
can be severely damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To minimize risk
to the components, observe the
following precautions:
■
■
■
■
Before docking or undocking your
LifeBook notebook (when using a port
replicator), it is a good practice to
always touch a grounded metal object
to discharge static electricity built up
in your body.
Be sure to power down your system
before adding or removing system
components. Even if the system is in
hibernate or standby states, data
could be lost or memory could be
damaged if power is still available to
the system.
When installing or removing a
memory module, hold it by the edge
so as not to touch any contacts or
chips. Be careful not to touch any
internal computer terminals or components; the oil from your fingers could
cause a short to the components.
Electrical equipment may be hazardous if
misused. Operations of this product or
similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow children
access to the interior of any electrical
products and do not permit them to
handle any cables.
Caring for your LifeBook notebook
■ Your LifeBook notebook is a durable but sensitive
electronic device. Treat it with respect and care.
■
Make a habit of transporting it in a suitable carrying
case. To protect your notebook from damage and to
optimize system performance, be sure to keep all air
all vents unobstructed, clean, and clear of debris. This
may require periodic cleaning, depending upon the
environment in which the system is used.
■
Do not operate the notebook in areas where the air
vents can be obstructed, such as in tight enclosures or
on soft surfaces like a bed or cushion.
■
Do not attempt to service the computer yourself.
Always follow installation instructions closely.
■
Keep it away from food and beverages.
Cleaning your LifeBook notebook
■
Always disconnect the power plug. (Pull the plug, not
the cord.)
■
Clean your LifeBook notebook with a damp, lint-free
cloth. Do not use abrasives or solvents.
■
Use a soft cloth to remove dust from the screen. Never
use glass cleaners.
Storing your LifeBook notebook
■ If storing your notebook for a month or longer, turn
your LifeBook notebook off, fully charge the battery(s),
then remove and store all Lithium ion batteries.
■
Store your notebook and batteries separately. If you
store your LifeBook with a battery installed, the battery
will discharge, and battery life will be reduced. In addition, a faulty battery might damage your LifeBook.
■
Store your LifeBook in a cool, dry location. Temperatures should remain between 13ºF (-25ºC) and 140ºF
(60ºC).

to correct any problems.
Never put your notebook through a metal detector.
Have your notebook hand-inspected by security personnel. You can however, put your notebook through a
properly tuned X-ray machine. To avoid problems,
place your notebook close to the entrance of the
machine and remove it as soon as possible or have your
notebook hand-inspected by security personnel. Security officials may require you to turn your notebook
On. Make sure you have a charged battery on hand.
When traveling with the hard drive removed, wrap the
drive in a non-conducting materials (cloth or paper). If
you have the drive checked by hand, be ready to install
the drive if needed. Never put your hard drive through a
metal detector. Have your hard drive hand-inspected by
security personnel. You can however, put your hard
drive through a properly tuned X-ray machine.

Glossary
Hard drive
A spinning platter of magnetic data storage media where
the platter is very stiff.
I/O
Input/Output. Data entering and leaving your notebook
in electronic form.
I/O Port
The connector and associated control circuits for data
entering and leaving your notebook in electronic form.
IDE
Intelligent Drive Electronics. A type of control interface
for a hard drive which is inside the hard drive unit.
Infrared

spectrum which is invisible to humans.
Infrastructure
A name of a wireless LAN configuration. This type of
communication uses an access point.
Another type of communication is called AdHoc.
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. (credit: webopedia.com)

LPT Port
Line Printer Port. A way of referring to parallel interface
ports because historically line printers were the first and
latter the most common device connected to parallel
ports.
MAC Address
Media Access Control Address
A unique physical address of a network card. For
Ethernet, the first three bytes are used as the vendor
code, controlled and assigned by IEEE. The remaining
three bytes are controlled by each vendor (preventing
overlap), therefore, every Ethernet card is given a unique
physical address in the world, being assigned with a
different address from other cards. For Ethernet, frames
are sent and received based on this address.

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 carefully to ensure it's correct operation.
Keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
Wireless LAN Device Covered by this Document
This document is applicable to systems containing the
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG (WM3945ABG) Network
Connections (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.
■
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.
■
This device is compliant with the following standards:
WPA, WPA2, CCX1.0, CCX2.0, and CCX3.0.
WIRELESS LAN MODES
Ad Hoc Mode
(See Figure 5-1) "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.
Access Point (Infrastructure) Mode
(See Figure 5-2) 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 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.

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 devices. Interference by microwaves does not occur with IEEE802.11a
radio which operates in the 5 GHz RF band.
■
Deactivation using the Wireless On/Off Switch
The WLAN device can be deactivated quickly and efficiently by toggling the Wireless On/Off Switch to the Off
position. (Figure 5-3)
The Wireless On/Off switch has no effect on non-Wireless LAN models.
Wireless devices that transmit in the 2.4 GHz 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
recommended that these interfering devices be powered off to ensure the proper operation of the WLAN.

DEACTIVATING THE WLAN DEVICE
Deactivation of 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.). Fujitsu mobile computers employ two
methods with which to deactivate the WLAN device,
1) the Wireless On/Off Switch, and, 2) in Windows
using the Intel PROSet for Wireless utility.
Before using the wireless LAN device, you
must first install ClickMe! to ensure that
the correct software for your device is
installed. (See Installing Click Me! on
page 28 for more information)
The WLAN device can also be deactivated in Windows
using the Intel PROSet for Wireless utility. The procedure to accomplish this:
1.
Click [Start]-> [All Programs].
2.
Select Intel ProSet Wireless, then click on Intel
ProSet Wireless from the menu that appears. The
Intel ProSet Wireless utility will be displayed.

Wireless LAN Glossary
GLOSSARY
Access point
Wireless network device used to bridge wireless and
wired network traffic.
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 96.
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 identify
uniquely 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.
Channel
Network key
Range of narrow-band frequencies used by the WLAN
device to transmit data. IEEE802.11b/g - 11 channels, 22
MHz wide channels.
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.
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.
IEEE802.11g
Wireless LAN standard that supports a maximum data
rate of 54 Mbps. 802.11g devices operate in the 2.4 GHz
ISM band.
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.
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 action upon communication errors into procedures.
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 authentica103

LifeBook S7100 Series Notebook
tion 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 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 (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 WiFi 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:
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)

Using the Fingerprint Sensor
Fingerprint Sensor Device
INTRODUCING THE OPTIONAL
FINGERPRINT SENSOR DEVICE
Your system may have an optional fingerprint sensor
device in the location at which other models have a
scroll button. (Figure B-1)
GETTING STARTED
This section guides you through the preparation of your
system for the OmniPass fingerprint recognition
application. You will be led through the OmniPass
installation process. You will also be led through the
procedure of enrolling your first user into OmniPass.
INSTALLING OMNIPASS
If OmniPass has already been installed on your system,
skip this section and go directly to “User Enrollment” on
page 112. You can determine whether OmniPass has
already been installed by checking to see if the following
are present:
■
■
Figure B-1 Fingerprint sensor
Although the system may have a
fingerprint sensor in place of a scroll
button, the fingerprint sensor can be used
for scrolling. Simply move your fingerprint
over the sensor the same as you would use
a scroll button.
With a fingerprint sensor, you can avoid having to enter
a username and password every time you want to:
■
Log onto Windows
■
Recover from standby mode
■
Cancel a password-protected screen saver
■
Log into homepages that require a username and password
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.
The presence of the gold key-shaped OmniPass icon in
the system tray 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 112. 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.
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.
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
112
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
S7110.book Page 113 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
will be your Windows computer name. In a corporate environment, or when accessing corporate
resources, the Domain: may not be your Windows
computer name. Click [Next] to continue.
3. In this step OmniPass captures your fingerprint.
Refer to “Enrolling a Fingerprint” on page 113 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
system tray OmniPass icon. Select the User Settings tab
and click Enrollment under the User Settings area. Click
Enroll Authentication Device and authenticate at the
authentication prompt to start device enrollment.
1. 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.
113
S7110.book Page 114 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
LifeBook S7100 Notebook
Go to a site that requires a login (username and password), but do not log in yet. At the site login prompt,
enter your username and password in the prompted
fields, but do not enter the site (do not hit [Enter],
[Submit], [OK], or Login). Right-click the OmniPass
system tray icon and select Remember Password from
the submenu. The Windows arrow cursor will change to
a golden key OmniPass cursor. Click this OmniPass
cursor in the login prompt area, but do not click the
[Login] or [Submit] button.
Associating a Friendly Name
After clicking the OmniPass key cursor near the login
prompt, OmniPass will prompt you to enter a “friendly
name” for this site. You should enter something that
reminds you of the website, the company, or the service
you are logging into. In its secure database, OmniPass
associates this friendly name with this website.
Additional Settings for Remembering a Site
When OmniPass prompts you to enter a “friendly name”
you also have the opportunity to set how OmniPass
authenticates you to this site. There are three effective
settings for how OmniPass handles a remembered site.
The default setting is Automatically click the “OK” or
“Submit” button for this password protected site once
the user is authenticated. With this setting, each time
you navigate to this site OmniPass will prompt you for
your master password or fingerprint authentication
device. Once you have authenticated with OmniPass,
you will automatically be logged into the site.
Less secure is the option to Automatically enter this
password protected site when it is activated. Do not
prompt for authentication. Check the upper box to get
this setting, and each time you navigate to this site
OmniPass will log you into the site without prompting
you to authenticate.
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.
114
Click Finish to complete the remember password procedure. The site location, the credentials to access the site,
and the OmniPass authentication settings for the site are
now stored in the OmniPass secure database. The
OmniPass authentication settings (Settings for this Password Site) can always be changed in Vault Management.
Logging in to a Remembered Site
Whether or not OmniPass prompts you to authenticate
when you return to a remembered site is determined by
Settings for this Password Site and can be changed in
Vault Management.
The following cases are applicable to using OmniPass to
login to: Windows, remembered websites, and all other
password protected resources.
With Master Password
Once you return to a site you have remembered with
OmniPass, you may be presented with a master password prompt. Enter your master password and you will
be allowed into the site.
Logging into Windows with a Fingerprint Device
When logging into Windows with a fingerprint device,
the fingerprint capture window will now appear next to
the Windows Login screen. Place your enrolled fingertip
on the sensor to authenticate. You will be simultaneously
logged into Windows and OmniPass. The capture
window will also appear if you have used Ctrl-Alt-Del to
lock a system, and the fingerprint device can be used to
log back in as stated above.
If a machine is locked and OmniPass
detects a different user logging back in
with a fingerprint, the first user will be
logged out and the second user logged in.
In Windows XP, your login options must be set either for
classic login, or for fast user switching and logon screen
to be enabled to use your fingerprint to log on to
Windows. To change this go to Control Panel, select
User Accounts and then click Change the way users log
on or off. If your Windows screensaver is password
protected, the fingerprint capture window will now
appear next to screensaver password dialog during
resume. You can authenticate to your screensaver password prompt with your enrolled finger.
Password Management
OmniPass provides an interface that lets you manage
your passwords. To access this GUI, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; you will be prompted to authenticate. Once you
gain access to Vault Management, click Manage Passwords under Vault Settings. You will see the Manage
Passwords interface, with a list of friendly names.
S7110.book Page 115 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
You can view the credentials stored for any remembered
website by highlighting the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog and clicking Unmask Values.
Should a password be reset, or an account expire, you
can remove stored credentials from OmniPass. Highlight
the desired resource under Password Protected Dialog
and click Delete Page. You will be prompted to confirm
the password deletion.
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., [email protected] and
[email protected]). If OmniPass did not provide
you identities, you would be limited to remembering
one account per site.
To create and manage identities, double-click the
OmniPass key in the system tray. Click Vault Management; OmniPass will prompt you to authenticate. Once
you gain access to Vault Management, click Manage
Identities under Vault Settings. You can only manage
the identities of the currently logged in OmniPass user
To add a new identity, click New Identity or double-click
Click here to add a new identity. Name the new identity
and click [OK], then click [Apply]. You can now switch
to the new identity and start remembering passwords.
To delete an identity, highlight the identity you want to
delete and click [Delete Identity], then click [Apply].
When you delete an identity, all of its
associated remembered sites and password
protected dialogs are lost.
To set the default identity, highlight the identity you
want as default and click [Set as Default]; click [Apply]
to ensure the settings are saved. If you log in to
OmniPass with a fingerprint device, you will automatically be logged in to the default identity for that
OmniPass user. You can choose the identity with which
you are logging in if you login using "master password".
Choosing User Identity during Login
To choose your identity during login, type your username in the User Name: field. Press [Tab] and see that
the Domain: field self-populates. Click the Password:
field to bring the cursor to it, and you will see the 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 system tray icon and click Switch User Identity from the submenu. The Switch Identity dialog will
appear. Select the desired identity and then click OK.
Identities and Password Management
On the Manage Passwords interface of the Vault
Management tab of the OmniPass Control Center, there
is a pull-down selection box labeled, Identity. This field
lets you choose which identity you are managing passwords for. When you select an identity here, only those
password protected dialogs that are associated with that
identity are shown. You can perform all the functions
explained in “Password Management” on page 114.
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.
■
■
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.
115
S7110.book Page 116 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
LifeBook S7100 Notebook
Exporting an OmniPass User Profile
To export a user, open the OmniPass Control Center,
and click Import/Export User under Manage Users.
Click Exports an OmniPass user profile. OmniPass will
prompt you to authenticate. Upon successfully authentication, you must name the OmniPass user profile and
decide where to save it. An .opi file is generated, and you
should store a copy of it in a safe place.
This .opi file contains all your user specific OmniPass
data, and it is both encrypted and password protected.
This user profile does NOT contain any of your
encrypted data files.
Importing an OmniPass User Profile
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.
■
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.
OMNIPASS CONTROL CENTER
This section will serve to explain functions within the
OmniPass Control Center that weren’t explained earlier.
You can access the OmniPass Control Center any of
three ways:
■
Double-click the golden OmniPass key shaped icon in
the Windows taskbar (typically in the 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.
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 115. 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 112.
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.
■
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.
116
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,
S7110.book Page 117 Monday, March 20, 2006 1:56 PM
Using the Fingerprint Sensor
etc.). The details of each setting under the Audio
Settings and Taskbar Tips interfaces are self-explanatory.
The Enrollment interface allows you to enroll fingerprints. For the procedure to enroll and authentication
device refer to Chapter 2.3. To enroll additional fingerprints, click Enroll Authentication Device, and authenticate with OmniPass. Select the fingerprint recognition
device in the Select Authentication Device screen (it
should already be marked by a green check if you have a
finger enrolled) and click Next.
System Settings
The OmniPass Startup Options interface can be found
in the System Settings tab. With these options you can
specify how your OmniPass Logon is tied to your
Windows Logon.
The first option, Automatically log on to OmniPass as
the current user, will do just as it says; during Windows
login, you will be logged on to OmniPass using your
Windows login credentials. If the user logging into
Windows was never enrolled into OmniPass, upon login
no one will be logged on to OmniPass. This setting is
appropriate for an office setting or any setting where
users must enter a username and password to log into a
computer. This is the default setting.
With the second option, Manually log on to OmniPass
at startup, OmniPass will prompt you to login once you
have logged on to Windows.
With the third option, Do not log on to OmniPass at
startup, OmniPass will not prompt for a user to be
logged on.
You can manually log on to OmniPass by right-clicking
the OmniPass taskbar icon and clicking Log in User
from the right-click menu.
TROUBLESHOOTING
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.
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
