Status Indicator Panel
The Status Indicator displays symbols that correspond
with a specific component of your LifeBook notebook.
These symbols (when visible) tell you how each of those
components is operating. (Figure 2-8)
The Power indicator symbol states whether your system
is operational. It has several different states, each of
which tells you what mode your LifeBook notebook is in
at that time.
Steady On: This means that there is power to your
LifeBook notebook and that it is ready for use.
Flashing: This means that your LifeBook notebook is
in Suspend mode.
Steady Off (not visible): This means that your system
is either in Save-to-Disk mode, or that your LifeBook
notebook has been turned off with the power switch.
If you are charging your battery, the Power indicator
symbol will remain on even if your LifeBook notebook is
shut off. The Power indicator symbol will also remain on
if you have either adapter connected and are shut down
from Windows, but have not turned off the power
AC ADAPTER INDICATOR
The AC Adapter indicator states whether your LifeBook
notebook is operating from the AC adapter, the Auto/
Airline adapter or the batteries. This icon has two
different states that can tell you what power source your
LifeBook notebook is using.
On: This means that either of the adapters are
currently in use.
Off: Power is only coming from the batteries, and you
do not have an adapter connected.
BATTERY LEVEL INDICATOR
The Battery Level indicator states whether or not the
primary Lithium ion battery is installed. In addition,
this symbol states how much charge is available within
the battery. The symbol will only be displayed for a
battery that is currently installed in your LifeBook note-
book. (Figure 2-9)
