Power States

Sliding the power button toward the front of the computer initiates a change from the current power state to a different state. The protocols for the power state changes are as follows:

• If the computer is off (no indicators on) and the display is open and/or an external monitor is attached to the computer, sliding the power button initiates a boot operation.

• If the computer is off, if the display is closed, and if no external monitor is attached, sliding the power button causes the computer to run the POST and then turn off.

• If the computer is on and the SYSTEM SWITCH option in System Setup is set to ON/OFF, sliding the power button turns off the computer.

• If the computer is on and the SYSTEM SWITCH option in System Setup is set to S2D/RFD, sliding the power button causes the computer to enter suspend-to-disk mode.

• If the computer is in suspend mode (the power/suspend indicator flashes every 8 seconds), if the SYSTEM SWITCH option in System Setup is set to ON/OFF, and if the display is open or an external monitor is attached, sliding the power button turns off the computer.

• If the computer is in suspend mode (the power/suspend indicator flashes every 8 seconds), if the SYSTEM SWITCH option in System Setup is set to S2D/RFD, and if the display is open or an external monitor is attached, sliding the power button causes the computer to enter suspend-to-disk mode.

• If the computer is in suspend mode (the power/suspend indicator flashes every 8 seconds), if the display is closed, and if no external monitor is attached, sliding the power button has no effect on the power state. The computer remains in suspend mode.

• If the computer is in suspend-to-disk mode, sliding the power button causes the computer to initiate the resume-from-disk operation.
