Lighting
Proper lighting can improve legibility of the display and reduce eyestrain. Position the computer so that sunlight or bright indoor lighting does not reflect off the screen. Use tinted windows, shades or other screen to eliminate sun glare. Avoid placing the computer in front of bright light that could shine directly in your eyes. If possible, use soft, indirect lighting in your computer work area. Use a lamp to illuminate your documents or desk, but be sure to position the lamp so that it does not reflect off the display or shine in your eyes.

Work habits

A key to avoiding discomfort or injury from repetitive strain is to vary your activities. If possible, schedule a variety of tasks into your workday. If you must spend long periods at the computer, finding ways to break up the routine can reduce stress and improve your efficiency. Sit in a relaxed posture. Good positioning of your chair and equipment as described earlier can reduce tension in your shoulders or neck and ease back strain. Vary your posture frequently. Occasionally stand up and stretch or exercise briefly. Exercise and stretch your wrists and hands a number of times during the day. Frequently, look away from the computer and focus your eyes on a distant object for several seconds, for example 30 seconds every 15 minutes. Take frequent short breaks instead of one or two long breaks, for example, two or three minutes every half hour. Have your eyes examined regularly and visit a doctor promptly, if you suspect you might be suffering from a repetitive strain injury. A number of books are available on ergonomics and repetitive strain injury or repetitive stress syndrome. For more information on these topics or for pointers on exercises for such stress points as hands and wrists, please check with your library or book vendor. Also refer to the computers Instruction Manual for Safety & Comfort.

When the AC adaptor is not connected, the computers main power source is a removable lithium ion battery pack, also referred to in this manual as the main battery. You can purchase additional battery packs for extended use of the computer away from an AC power source. Do not change the battery pack while the AC adaptor is connected.Before you remove the battery pack, save your data and shut down the computer, or set the computer to Hibernation Mode. While entering Hibernation Mode, the computer saves the contents of memory to the hard disk drive. However, for safety sake, it is best to save your data manually.

Figure 6-2 Battery pack

The battery pack is a lithium ion battery, which can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled or disposed of. Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or regulations. Use only batteries recommended by TOSHIBA as replacements. Do not remove the battery pack while the computer is in Standby mode. Data is stored in RAM, so if the computer loses power it will be lost. When the computer is powered off in Standby mode, and the AC adaptor is not connected, the main battery pack supply power to maintain data and program in memory. If the battery pack(s) is completely discharged, Standby mode does not function and the computer loses all data in memory. To ensure that the battery pack maintains its maximum capacity, operate the computer on battery power at least once a month until the battery pack is fully discharged. Refer to Extending battery life in this chapter for procedures. If the computer is continuously operated on AC power through an AC adaptor for an extended period, more than a month, the battery may fail to retain a charge. It may not function efficiently over the expected life of the battery and the Battery indicator may not indicate a low-battery condition.

Real Time Clock battery

The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal real time clock and calendar. It also maintains the system configuration. If the RTC battery becomes completely discharged, the system loses this data and the real time clock and calendar stop working. The following message appears when you turn on the power:

**** RTC battery is low or CMOS checksum is inconsistent **** Press [F1] key to set Date/Time.
The computers RTC battery is a Ni-MH battery and should be replaced only by your dealer or by a TOSHIBA service representative. The battery can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled or disposed of. Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or regulations. You can change the setting of RTC by pressing F1 key. After configuring the time and date for the Real Time Clock battery, we recommend that you turn the power status of your computer to "ON" so that the Real Time Clock battery is charged.

Heat can cause a battery pack to explode and possibly cause serious injury. 2. Never attempt to disassemble, tamper with or repair a battery pack. The battery pack could overheat and ignite. Leakage of the caustic alkaline solution or other electrolytic substances could cause fire, possibly resulting in death or serious injury. 3. Never short circuit the battery pack by either accidentally or intentionally bringing the battery terminals in contact with another conductive object. This could cause serious injury or a fire, and could also damage the battery pack. Always wrap the battery pack in plastic (or place it in a plastic bag) whenever transporting it, to avoid exposing the terminals to another conductive object which could result in serious injury. Always cover the metal terminals with insulating tape when disposing of the battery pack, to prevent accidental short circuiting which could result in serious injury. 4. Never drive a nail or any other sharp object into the battery pack, hit battery pack with a hammer or other object or step on it. Doing so could cause a fire or explosion possibly resulting in serious injury. 5. Never charge the battery pack by a method other than as instructed in the User's Manual. Doing so could cause a fire or explosion possibly resulting in serious injury. 6. Never connect the battery pack to a plug socket or a car cigarette plug socket. The battery pack could rupture or ignite causing a fire or explosion possibly resulting in serious injury. 7. Never allow a battery pack to become wet. A wet battery pack will overheat or ignite causing rupture or fire, possibly resulting in death or serious injury. 8. Never store a battery pack in an area of high humidity. This could cause a fire or explosion possibly resulting in serious injury. 9. Never expose a battery pack to abnormal shock, vibration or pressure. The battery pack's internal protective device could fail, causing it to overheat or ignite resulting in caustic liquid leakage, or explosion or fire, possibly resulting in death or serious injury. 10. Never subject a battery pack to heat, and never store it or use it near a heat source. The battery pack could ignite or explode when heated or burned, possibly resulting in death or serious injury. Subjecting a battery pack to heat could also cause caustic liquid to leak. It can also cause failure, malfunction, or loss of stored data. 11. Always use the battery pack supplied as an accessory or an equivalent battery pack specified in the User's Manual. Other battery packs have different voltage and terminal polarities. Use of non-conforming battery packs could generate smoke or cause fire or rupture, possibly resulting in serious injury.

Monitoring battery capacity
Remaining battery power can be monitored in TOSHIBA Power Saver. Wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. The computer needs this time to check the batterys remaining capacity and to calculate the remaining operating time, based on the current power consumption rate and remaining battery capacity. The actual remaining operating time may differ slightly from the calculated time. With repeated discharges and recharges, the batterys capacity will gradually decrease. Therefore, an often used, older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when both are fully charged. In this case, TOSHIBA Power Saver will indicate a 100% charge for both the old and new battery, but the displayed estimated time remaining will be shorter for the older battery.
Maximizing battery operating time
A batterys usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a single charge. How long the charge lasts in a battery depends on: How you configure the computer (for example, whether you enable battery-power saving options). The computer provides a battery save mode, which can be set in TOSHIBA Power Saver, to conserve battery power. This mode has the following options: CPU Processing speed Screen brightness Cooling Method System standby System Hibernation Monitor Power off HDD Power off How often and how long you use the hard disk, optical disc and the floppy disk drive. How much charge the battery contained to begin with. How you use optional devices, such as a PC card, to which the battery supplies power. Enabling Standby mode conserves battery power if you are frequently turning the computer off and on. Where you store your programs and data. Closing the display when you are not using the keyboard saves power. Operating time decreases at low temperatures. The condition of the battery terminals. Make sure the battery terminals stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before installing the battery pack.
Retaining data with power off
When you turn off your computer with fully charged batteries, the batteries retain data for the following approximate time periods. High Capacity battery pack (8800 mAh) about 8 days (Standby mode) about 160 days (Boot mode) Battery pack (4700 mAh) about 5 days (Standby mode) about 85 days (Boot mode) RTC battery 30 days

Extending battery life

To maximize the life of your battery pack: At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source and operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges. Before doing so, follow the steps below. 1. Turn off the computers power. 2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computers power. If it does not turn on go to step 4. 3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time, continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged. If the Battery indicator flashes or there is some other warning to indicate a low battery, go to step 4. 4. Connect the AC adaptor to the computer and the power cord to a power outlet. The DC IN 15V indicator should glow green, and the Battery indicator should glow orange to indicate that the battery pack is being charged. If the DC IN 15V indicator does not glow, power is not being supplied. Check the connections for the AC adaptor and power cord. 5. Charge the battery pack until the Battery indicator glows green. If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use. If you will not be using the system for an extended period, more than one month, remove the battery pack. Disconnect the AC adaptor when the battery is fully charged. Overcharging makes the battery hot and shortens life. If you are not going to use the computer for more than eight hours, disconnect the AC adaptor. Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.
