48 - Power Management
Before turning off the power, check that the hard drive/optical drive access indicator is off. If you turn off
the power while accessing a disk there is a risk of data loss. To ensure that your notebook shuts down
without error, use the Windows shut down procedure.
Using the correct procedure to shut down from Windows allows your notebook to complete its operations
and turn off power in the proper sequence to avoid errors. The proper sequence is:
Click the [Start] button, and then move the mouse over the small arrow at the bottom right of the right-
hand pane. Select Shut Down from the list.
