WARNING
This computer system is shipped with the latest Energy Star power saving features active, allowing you to be more environmentally friendly in your work. It is
intended to help reduce global power consumption, and ultimately waste and
pollution. This system is designed, when left unattended, to enter a 'Low Power'
mode and then into a further 'Standby' mode.
LOW POWER MODE (The Standby LED will flash)
In this state the screen will be blank but software will still run, although it will be
slower.
You can Restore the system by moving the mouse, pressing any keyboard key, or
by pressing the purple STANDBY button on the front panel, or the remote control.
The computer will almost immediately restore to the state in which you left it.
The monitor may take a few seconds to warm up again.
STANDBY MODE (The Standby LED will be steady)
In this state the monitor will be in a controlled 'off' state. The system and software
will assume a frozen state. You will not lose any unsaved data. The system fans
will slow down or stop altogether.
You can Restore the system by either, pressing the purple STANDBY button on
the front panel of the system or on the remote control. The computer will, almost
immediately restore to the state in which you left it. The monitor may take a few
seconds to warm up again.
NOTE: Pressing the STANDBY button when the system is not in standby mode
will put the system into standby mode.
To change any of the above settings refer to the Apricot Power Management online help file in Windows 95 for details.
