Managing Battery Power

The OmniBook conserves power by using Advanced Power Management (APM), software that controls battery charging and power drain. The OmniBook provides several safeguards so you won’t be surprised by a dead-battery condition, including the following: ♦ The battery status indicator shows the remaining battery charge. ♦ Built-in warnings are displayed for low battery conditions. ♦ The OmniBook automatically turns off when the battery charge gets too low—your session continues when you start recharging the battery or insert a fresh battery. Data on any of the drives is not affected by a low battery—unless the battery runs down completely while writing data to the drive, or if the battery in a PC RAM card is also low. The OmniBook uses Advanced Power Management (APM) to conserve battery power. You can take steps to optimize your battery operating time. This section describes how to ♦ Save battery power. ♦ Set time-outs. ♦ Get the most from your battery. ♦ Create the hibernation partition.

To save battery power

Follow these suggestions to conserve battery power. • Plug in the ac adapter, especially while using the floppy disk drive, the CD-ROM drive, or any external connections. • Put the OmniBook in Suspend mode whenever you are not using it for a short while: press the blue power button for approximately 1 second, or select Start menu, Suspend. • Put the OmniBook in Hibernate mode whenever you want to save your current session, but will not be using the computer for several hours or more (Fn+F12). • Shut down the OmniBook whenever you will not be using it for several hours or more. Click Start, Shut Down. The current session is not saved. • Turn the brightness of the display down to the lowest comfortable level. This reduces the backlight power and extends the life of your OmniBook display. • Set the automatic time-out settings to emphasize saving power. • If you work with an application that uses the serial port or a PC Card, exit the application when you are done using it. 2-11, Operating the OmniBook XE2 Managing Battery Power • If you have an I/O PC Card—that is, a PC Card having an external connection, such as a modem or network card—remove it when you are not using it. Some I/O cards use significant power, even while they’re inactive.

To set time-outs

The BIOS Setup utility includes settings for automatic time-outs at specified periods of inactivity. There are four different time-outs for different levels of power and conservation. 1. From the Start menu, shut down then restart the OmniBook. 2. When you see the HP logo, press F2 to enter the BIOS Setup utility. Active keys are described along the bottom of the screen. Help information for the highlighted item appears in the right-hand sidebar in the display. 3. Select the Power menu. 4. Select Power Management Settings. 5. Press F10 to save and exit the BIOS Setup utility.

To get the most from your battery

The following are some further suggestions for the best management of your OmniBook batteries. • Do not leave batteries unused for long periods of time. If you have more than one, rotate them. • If you normally use ac power, make a practice of at least once a week using the battery as your power source. • Unplug the ac adapter when the computer is not in use. • To preserve the life of your battery, be sure to charge the battery regularly. • For long-term storage, the battery must be charged at 20-50% to save capacity loss by self-discharge and to avoid deterioration of battery performance. In a discharged condition, the battery voltage decreases faster. Storage in a 100% charged condition can cause higher self-discharge and deterioration of discharge capacity—even after recharging—compared to storage in a 20-50% charged condition.

To create a Hibernate partition

There must be a hibernation partition large enough to hold the contents of memory on the hard disk before the OmniBook can hibernate. By default the hibernation partition is large enough to hold the maximum amount of memory 2-12, Operating the OmniBook XE2 Managing Battery Power allowed in the OmniBook. If you have repartitioned the hard disk, purchased a new hard disk, or would like to make the partition smaller, follow the instructions below. CAUTIONThis procedure erases the hard disk. Be sure to save any data on your hard disk before starting this procedure. You’ll need the OmniBook, its CD-ROM drive, and the OmniBook Recovery CD to create a hibernate partition. 1. Connect the ac adapter to the OmniBook. 2. Insert the bootable Recovery CD in the CD-ROM drive. 3. Reboot, press ESC twice and select the ATAPI CD-ROM as the boot device. 4. When prompted, click “2 Continue” 5. Click “2 Advanced”. Choose the desired hibernation partition size. 6. Select Do not load operating system. 7. Click “1 Continue”. 8. Click OK. Do not interrupt the Hibernate partition process or unplug the ac adapter until the process is complete. 2-13, Operating the OmniBook XE2 Software System Resources

Testing the Operation

The OmniBook hardware diagnostic program provides two levels of testing: • Automated testing using the basic hardware test. • Advanced testing using the individual hardware tests. You can run the OmniBook hardware diagnostic program from the OmniBook Hibernation partition on the hard disk or from a floppy disk. The tests are designed to run after the system reboots. This ensures that the computer will be in a predictable state, so the diagnostic program can properly test the hardware components. The tests are non-destructive and are intended to preserve the state of the computer. The OmniBook reboots when you exit the program so drivers can be loaded.

To create a diagnostic floppy disk

After inserting a formatted floppy disk in the floppy drive, do one of the following to create a diagnostic floppy disk: • On an OmniBook with a factory software installation, run DIAGINST from the \DMI\HPDIAGS directory on the hard disk. –or– If HP TopTools is installed, use the DiagTools page to create the disk. • On any computer with World Wide Web access, download the OmniBook Hardware Diagnostic software package from the OmniBook website (http://www.hp.com/omnibook), run this file to unpack the files, then run DIAGINST to create the diagnostic disk. 2-18, Operating the OmniBook XE2 Testing the Operation

Hewlett-Packard Limited Warranty Summary

The following table summarizes Hewlett-Packard’s limited warranty. The OmniBook Support and Service booklet contains complete warranty information. 8-12,

Features and Support Information Removing OmniBook Passwords Removing OmniBook Passwords If you forget your password, Hewlett-Packard has a procedure to allow you to

remove it. There is a master password that will unlock each OmniBook. You must call Technical Support and give acceptable proof-of-ownership of your

OmniBook. The fact that the OmniBook is in the hands of an HP representative

is not evidence of ownership. In addition, HP will not remove a password from an OmniBook for anyone other than the owner, even if it involves law enforcement agencies.

To remove the password Send the following documentation by fax or mail

• Acceptable proof-of-ownership (sales receipt, purchase order, etc.) with the following information: o OmniBook’s serial number. o Owner’s name. o Where purchased. o Date of purchase. • A written password removal request should have the following information: o Date of request. o Requester’s name, address, and telephone number. o From whom was the OmniBook acquired (company, store, gift, etc.). o The OmniBook model number (such as OmniBook 7100). o The OmniBook's serial number. o The requester’s signature. (no typed or electronic signatures). o If available, a secondary signature (supervisor, manager, spouse, previous owner). 8-13, Features and Support Information Removing OmniBook Passwords When you call HP Technical Support, follow these steps. You’ll need to generate a master password before you can remove a user password. The encoded master password is a unique alphanumeric sequence that the OmniBook generates each time the appropriate key are pressed in the BIOS Setup Utility. Because of this, a master password can be used only once. If you forget your password again, you must place another call to Technical Support. 1. Restart the OmniBook and press F2 when you see the HP logo. 2. Press F12 at the Password prompt. The OmniBook generates and displays an encoded master password. 3. Read the encoded password to Technical Support. 4. Technical Support runs a program that decodes the encoded master password. 5. Press ENTER, then type the decoded alphanumeric password Technical support generates. The OmniBook decodes the master password and compares it to the password entered: • If the passwords match, the OmniBook unlocks. The user’s original password is erased. Technical Support can then guide you through the process of entering a new password. • If the passwords do not match, repeat the previous sequence until the correct master password is entered. The password removal program for the HP OmniBook PCs is protected as HP Company Confidential information. This program may not be copied, backed- up, printed or distributed. The number of password removal programs worldwide is very limited. Each time the program is used, the owner’s name, the OmniBook’s serial number and the date and time are recorded. This log is subject to HP’s standard record-retention process and review. 8-14, Features and Support Information Using Electronic Serial Numbers

Using Electronic Serial Numbers

Beginning with the OmniBook 3000 and OmniBook 800 notebooks, Hewlett-Packard ships OmniBooks with an electronic serial number. This will be continued on all future products. An electronic serial number can help IT managers track assets and software configurations. The serial number can also be used for tracking lost or stolen notebooks. The Desktop Management Interface (DMI) TopTools application shipped with our new products can be used to read the serial number locally or remotely across a network.

To ensure serial number security

To support electronic serial numbers, HP will check for the serial number at configuration of the Motherboard, in manufacturing, and through support services. Manufacturing All OmniBooks will have electronic serial numbers set in manufacturing. Service If an OmniBook motherboard is replaced, the HP authorized repair facility must program the electronic serial number before returning the unit to the customer. OmniBook motherboard Configuration If for some reason the electronic serial number is not set, the OmniBook will prompt with the following message and wait for a key press when powered on for the first time: Invalid Electronic Serial Number Press any key to continue After a key press, the OmniBook continues the normal boot process. Hewlett-Packard has also provided a utility called ESN.EXE in the C:\OMNIBOOK directory to set the serial number. This program must be run in MS-DOS. This Utility does the following: 1. Checks to make sure no electronic serial number is set. 2. Prompts to confirm that you want to set the serial number. 3. Prompts for the serial number and gives the location (bottom of unit). 4. Confirms the Serial Number is valid. If it is, it asks you to verify the serial number. If it is not correct, it prompts for the serial number again. 8-15, Features and Support Information Using Electronic Serial Numbers 5. It burns the electronic serial number into flash memory and prompts you to restart the OmniBook.

To correct an incorrect serial number

If for some reason the customer receives an OmniBook with an incorrect electronic serial number, the customer can run the ESN and it will do the following: 1. Ask the user to verify the serial number is correct. 2. If the user answers no, it will give the user a pass number. The user must call HP customer support and give the pass number. 3. The HP customer support representative will give the user a password that will remove the current serial number. 4. Restart the system and follow the instructions above to set a new serial number. Note Y ou can safely update the OmniBook BIOS without impact to the serial number. BIOS updates do not erase the electronic serial number located in the motherboard. 8-16,
