Taking the computer home





Note: If the Sleep indicator is off, the computer has entered 
Hibernation mode and is turned off. If the power indicator is off 
but the Sleep indicator is on, the computer has entered Sleep 
mode. In both cases, press and release the power button to turn 
the computer back on. Note that the computer may enter 
Hibernation mode after being in Sleep mode for a period of time.

What to bring to meetings

If your meeting is relatively short, you probably do not need to bring anything 
with you other than your computer. If your meeting will be longer, or if your 
battery is not fully charged, you may want to bring the AC adapter with you to 
plug in your computer in the meeting room.

If the meeting room does not have an electrical outlet, reduce the drain on the 
battery by putting the computer in Sleep mode. Press <Fn> + <F4> or close the 
display cover whenever you are not actively using the computer. To resume, 
open the display (if closed), then press and release the power button.

Taking the computer home

When you are moving from your office to your home or vice versa.

Preparing the computer

After disconnecting the computer from your desktop, follow these steps to 
prepare the computer for the trip home:

Check that you have removed all media and compact disks from the 
drive(s). Failure to remove the media can damage the drive head.

Pack the computer in a protective case that can prevent the computer from 
sliding around and cushion it if it should fall.

Caution: Avoid packing items next to the top cover of the 
computer. Pressure against the top cover can damage the screen.

What to take with you

Unless you have some items at home, take the following items with you:

AC adapter and power cord
