Power On
Power/Suspend/Resume Button 
The Power/Suspend/Resume button is used to turn on your LifeBook notebook from its off state. Once 
you have connected your AC adapter or charged the internal Lithium ion battery, you can power on your 
LifeBook notebook. 
To turn on your LifeBook notebook from its off state, press the Power/Suspend/Resume button, located 
above the keyboard to the right. When you are done working you can either leave your notebook in 
Suspend mode (see “Sleep Mode” on page 45), or you can turn it off (see “Powering Off” on page 48).
When you power on your LifeBook, it will perform a Power On Self Test (POST) to check the internal 
parts and configuration for correct functionality. If a fault is found, your LifeBook notebook will emit an 
audio warning and/or an error message will be displayed. See “Power On Self Test Messages” on page 91. 
Depending on the nature of the problem, you may be able to continue by starting the operating system or 
by entering the BIOS setup utility and revising the settings.
After satisfactory completion of the POST, your notebook will load your operating system.
