Power Conservation
This handheld computer consumes less power compared to conventional consumer
computers. The power consumption may be further reduced by properly configuring the
Power Management Setup.
It is recommended that the power saving features be enabled even when not running on
battery power. Power Management features can conserve power without degrading system
performance.
Power Safety
There are specific power requirements for your handheld computer:
z
Only use an approved AC adapter designed for this handheld computer.
z
There is a 3-prong grounded plug for the AC adapter. The 3rd prong is an important
mechanism for ensuring product safety. Please do not neglect the importance of this
mechanism. If you are unable to access a compatible outlet, please hire a qualified
electrician to install a compatible outlet for you.
z
When unplugging the AC power cord, please make sure to disconnect the cord by
pulling from the plug head instead of pulling from the wire to prevent wire damage.
z
Make sure the power outlet and any other extension cord(s) you use can support the
total current load of all the connected devices.
z
Before cleaning the handheld computer, please make sure it is disconnected from any
external power source.
Warning Before any upgrade procedures, make sure the power is turned off, and all the cables are disconnected. Also, it is advisable to remove your battery to prevent your handheld computer from accidentally turning on. Battery Precautions

Chapter 2 - Operating Information
Start Using Your Handheld Computer
Turn on your handheld computer by using the power button. After turning on the power of
your handheld computer, the device will boot up with Windows CE 6.0 R3.
Boot Up
When turning on the power, your will see “LOADING” on the screen and your handheld
computer will start to load the required boot up files and processes for operation. This
start-up procedure is called “boot up”. Your handheld computer requires approximately 20
seconds of Boot Up time before the OS is fully loaded.
After boot up, you will be presented with the desktop screen. Windows CE 6.0 shares much
of its visual design elements with other desktop and notebook operating systems from
Microsoft. You can create application short-cuts of to your desktop, change the background
wallpaper, as well as modify the display font size, etc., in a similar fashion.
Chapter 2 ‐ 11 Operating Information
Start Menu and Task Bar
The Start Menu, which is located at the bottom of your desktop, allows you to access
programs and applications installed within your handheld computer, launch applications, as
well as access the control panel to change device settings. The Task Bar provides a quick
overview of running programs and applications, allowing multi-tasking and switching
between different applications conveniently. A sample image of Start Menu and Task Bar is
provided below.
For more information regarding the use of Start Menu and Task Bar, please refer to
Microsoft Windows CE Reference Manual.
Chapter 2 ‐ 12 Operating Information
Stop Using Your Handheld Computer
In order to conserve your device battery life, you may place your device into one of the
several power states available, either temporarily or for an extended period of time. You can
change the power state of your handheld computer anytime by pressing the power button
to open up the Power Menu.
The Power Menu provides three power states for you to choose from. Each state has a
certain level of power consumption and supported functionalities. The states are discussed
below.
Input Lock
In Input Lock state, the device LCD display is turned off, all tap inputs and button inputs
(except the power button) are disabled. Applications that were launched prior to entering
this state will continue to run; established wireless connectivity will be maintained (as long
as the wireless signals are not lost). All unsaved application data prior to entering this state
are maintained.
By placing your handheld device into this less battery-power intensive state, you will be
able to allow applications that require wireless connectivity to continue operating without
interruption. As such, Lock state is an ideal state for your device when you want to
conserve battery life without compromising your established wireless connectivity.
Input Lock is the most power intensive of the three Off states. You can enter this state by
pressing the power button once to call up the Power Menu, and then tap the “Input Lock”
button. To return to On state, press the power button again.
Chapter 2 ‐ 13 Operating Information
Suspend
In Suspend state, the device LCD display is turned off, all tap inputs and button inputs
(except the power button) are disabled. Applications that were launched prior to entering
this state will be put on halt; established wireless connectivity will be lost. All unsaved
application data prior to entering this state are maintained.
By placing your handheld device into this state, you can conserve even more battery life
than Lock state. However, this additional battery conservation means that you will not be
able to maintain your device’s wireless connectivity, or keep applications running. All
unsaved data prior to entering this state is maintained.
Suspend is an ideal state for your device when you want to conserve more battery life, do
not need to keep wireless connectivity on constantly, but want to keep your device ready to
resume back to work on a moment’s notice.
Suspend is the balance between power consumption and functionality of the three Off
states. You can enter this state by pressing the power button once to call up the Power
Menu, and then tap the “Suspend” button. To return to On state, press the power button
again.
Power Off
In Power Off state, your handheld device is completely turned off. All applications are
terminated, no wireless connectivity is established and all unsaved data are lost.
Power Off is an ideal state for your handheld device when you do not need to operate your
device for an extended period of time.
Power Off is the most power conservative of the three Off states (no power drain except
natural battery discharge). You can enter this state by pressing the power button once to
call up the Power Menu, then tap the “Power Off” button.
Chapter 2 ‐ 14 Operating Information
Hard Reset
In the event that your handheld computer hangs or stops responding, you can perform a
Hard Reset by pressing and holding the power button for 8 seconds. This action will invoke
your device to perform a graceful reset without damaging any components of your device.
Please note that any unsaved work or data will be lost after a Hard Reset.
In the unlikely event that your device cannot invoke Hard Reset, please unplug all attached
power cords and peripheral devices, and then remove the battery pack.
