Chapter 3

Mobile Computing

This chapter covers all aspects of using your device while traveling.

Toshiba’s energy-saver design

Your device enters a low-power suspension mode when it is not being used, thereby conserving energy and saving money in the process. It has a number of other features that enhance its energy efficiency.

Many of these energy-saving features have been preset by

Toshiba. We recommend you leave these features active, allowing your device to operate at its maximum energy efficiency, so that you can use it for longer periods while traveling.

Running the device on battery power

The device contains a Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery that provides power when you are away from an AC outlet. You can recharge it many times.

Running the device on battery power

Battery Notice

Battery life rating is for comparison purposes only, and does not indicate the battery life that will be obtained by any individual user. Actual battery life may vary considerably from specifications depending on product model, configuration, applications, power management settings and features utilized, as well as the natural performance variations produced by the design of individual components.

The battery life rating is only achieved on the select models and configurations tested by Toshiba under the specific test settings at the time of publication and is not an estimate of a system’s battery life under any conditions other than the specific test settings.

Recharge time varies depending on usage. Battery may not charge while the device is consuming full power. After a period of time, the battery will lose its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced. This is normal for all batteries.

To ensure that the battery maintains its maximum capacity, operate the device on battery power at least once a month.

The Lithium-Ion battery has no memory effect so it is not necessary to let the battery fully discharge each time.

However, for better accuracy of the battery meter, it is helpful to fully discharge the battery periodically. Please see

“Maintaining your battery” on page 78

for procedures. If the device is continuously operated on AC power, either through an AC adaptor or a port replicator (if applicable to your system), for an extended period (more than a month), the battery may fail to retain a charge. This may shorten the life of the battery, and may cause the battery meter to be inaccurate.

NOTE For best performance when playing streaming media

(especially streaming video), either power the device from its AC adaptor, or set up a power plan that keeps the device running at full performance even when powered from its battery. For more information about Windows ®

power plans, see “Power Plans” on page 75


The device also has an internal real-time-clock (RTC) battery.
