User's Manual

Introduction

============

The FreeType Project is distributed in several archive packages; some of them may contain, in addition to the FreeType font engine, various tools and contributions which rely on, or relate to, the FreeType Project.

This license applies to all files found in such packages, and which do not fall under their own explicit license. The license affects thus the FreeType font engine, the test programs, documentation and makefiles, at the very least.

This license was inspired by the BSD, Artistic, and IJG (Independent JPEG

Group) licenses, which all encourage inclusion and use of free software in commercial and freeware products alike. As a consequence, its main points are that:

We don't promise that this software works. However, we will be interested in any kind of bug reports. (`as is' distribution)

You can use this software for whatever you want, in parts or full form, without having to pay us. (`royalty-free' usage)

You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use it, or only parts of it, in a program, you must acknowledge somewhere in your documentation that you have used the FreeType code. (`credits')

We specifically permit and encourage the inclusion of this software, with or without modifications, in commercial products.

We disclaim all warranties covering The FreeType Project and assume no liability related to The FreeType Project.

Finally, many people asked us for a preferred form for a credit/disclaimer to use in compliance with this license. We thus encourage you to use the following text:

"""

Portions of this software are copyright (C) <year> The FreeType Project www.freetype.org

All rights reserved.

"""

Please replace <year> with the value from the FreeType version you actually use.

ENERGY STAR

®

Program

Your Computer model may be ENERGY STAR

® compliant. If the model you purchased is compliant, it is labeled with the ENERGY STAR logo on the computer and the following information applies.

TOSHIBA is a partner in the ENERGY STAR Program and has designed this computer to meet the latest ENERGY

STAR guidelines for energy efficiency. Your computer ships with the power management options preset to a configuration that will provide the most stable operating environment and optimum system performance for both

AC power and battery modes.

To conserve energy, your computer is set to enter the lowpower Sleep Mode which shuts down the system and display within 15 minutes of inactivity in AC power mode.

TOSHIBA recommends that you leave this and other energy saving features active, so that your computer will operate at its maximum energy efficiency. You can wake the computer from Sleep Mode by pressing the power button.

Your ENERGY STAR certified computer should be set by default to enter a low-power "sleep mode" after a period of inactivity. Simply touching the mouse or keyboard "wakes" the computer in seconds. These sleep features can save you up to $23 per year (200 kWh per year in electricity) and prevent up to 300 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions annually.To learn how to adjust or activate these sleep settings on your computer, please go to: www.energystar.gov/sleepinstructions

To activate sleep settings organization-wide quickly and easily through network tools, please go to www.energystar.gov/powermanagement

Disposing of the computer and the computer's batteries

Contact an authorized TOSHIBA service provider for details regarding how to dispose of the computer and the batteries.

General Precautions

TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the computer.

Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions included in the text of the manual.

User's Manual 1-15

Provide adequate ventilation

Always make sure your computer and AC adaptor have adequate ventilation and are protected from overheating when the power is turned on or when an AC adaptor is connected to a power outlet (even if your computer is in Sleep Mode). In this condition, observe the following:

Never cover your computer or AC adaptor with any object.

Never place your computer or AC adaptor near a heat source, such as an electric blanket or heater.

Never cover or block the air vents including those located at the base of the computer.

Always operate your computer on a hard flat surface. Using your computer on a carpet or other soft material can block the vents.

Always provide sufficient space around the computer.

Overheating your computer or AC adaptor could cause system failure, computer or AC adaptor damage or a fire, possibly resulting in serious injury.

Creating a computer-friendly environment

Place the computer on a flat surface that is large enough for the computer and any other items you are using, such as a printer.

Leave enough space around the computer and other equipment to provide adequate ventilation. Otherwise, they may overheat.

To keep your computer in prime operating condition, protect your work area from:

Dust, moisture, and direct sunlight.

Equipment that generates a strong electromagnetic field, such as stereo speakers (other than speakers that are connected to the computer) or speakerphones.

Rapid changes in temperature or humidity and sources of temperature change such as air conditioner vents or heaters.

Extreme heat, cold, or humidity.

Liquids and corrosive chemicals.

Stress injury

Carefully read the Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. It contains information on the prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists that can be caused by extensive keyboard use. It also includes information on work space design, posture and lighting that can help reduce physical stress.

User's Manual 1-16

Heat injury

Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical contact with the computer for a long time, for example if you rest the computer on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, your skin might suffer a low-heat injury.

If the computer has been used for a long time, avoid direct contact with the metal plate supporting the various interface ports as this can become hot.

The surface of the AC adaptor can become hot when in use but this condition does not indicate a malfunction. If you need to transport the

AC adaptor, you should disconnect it and let it cool before moving it.

Do not lay the AC adaptor on a material that is sensitive to heat as the material could become damaged.

Pressure or impact damage

Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to any form of strong impact as this can damage the computer's components or otherwise cause it to malfunction.

Cleaning the computer

To help ensure long, trouble-free operation, keep the computer free of dust and dirt, and use care with all liquids around it.

Be careful not to spill liquids into the computer. If the computer does get wet, turn the power off immediately and let the computer dry completely - in these circumstance you should get the computer inspected by an authorized service provider in order to assess the scope of any damage.

Clean the plastics of the computer using a slightly water dampened cloth.

You can clean the display screen by spraying a small amount of glass cleaner onto a soft, clean cloth and then wiping the screen gently with the cloth.

Never spray cleaner directly onto the computer or let liquid run into any part of it. Never use harsh or caustic chemical products to clean the computer.

Moving the computer

While the computer is designed for flexible day-to-day usage you should exercise a few simple precautions when moving it in order to help ensure trouble-free operation.

Make sure all disk/disc activity has ended before moving the computer.

User's Manual 1-17

Turn off (shut down) the computer.

Disconnect the AC adaptor and all peripherals before moving the computer.

Close the display panel.

Do not pick up the computer by its display panel.

Before carrying your computer, shut it down, disconnect the AC adaptor and allow it to cool down - a failure to follow this instruction may result in minor heat injury.

Be careful not to subject the computer to impact or shock - a failure to follow this instruction could result in damage to computer, computer failure or loss of data.

Never transport your computer with any cards installed - this may cause damage to either the computer and/or the card resulting in computer failure.

Always use a suitable carry case when transporting the computer.

When carrying your computer, be sure to hold it securely so that it does not fall or hit anything.

Do not carry your computer by holding any of its protruding elements.

Mobile phones

Please be aware that the use of mobile phones can interfere with the audio system. The operation of the computer will not be impaired in any way, but it is recommended that a minimum distance of 30cm is maintained between the computer and a mobile phone that is in use.

Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort

All important information on the safe and proper use of this computer is described in the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort. Be sure to read it before using the computer.

Safety Icons

Safety icons are used in this manual to bring important information to your attention. Each type of message is identified as shown below.
