United States

USA and Canada Safety Requirements and Notices

The FCC with its action in ET Docket 93-62 has adopted a safety standard for human exposure to radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC certified equipment. The Intel® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection products meet the Human Exposure limits found in OET Bulletin 65, 2001, and ANSI/IEEE C95.1, 1992. Proper operation of this radio according to the instructions found in this manual will result in exposure substantially below the FCC’s recommended limits.

The following safety precautions should be observed:

Do not touch or move antenna while the unit is transmitting or receiving.

Do not hold any component containing the radio such that the antenna is very close or touching any exposed parts of the body, especially the face or eyes, while transmitting.

Do not operate the radio or attempt to transmit data unless the antenna is connected; if not, the radio may be damaged.

Use in specific environments:

The use of wireless devices in hazardous locations is limited by the constraints posed by the safety directors of such environments.

X

M645

Preface

The use of wireless devices on airplanes is governed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The use of wireless devices in hospitals is restricted to the limits set forth by each hospital.

Antenna use:

In order to comply with FCC RF exposure limits, low gain integrated antennas should be located at a minimum distance of 20 cm (8 inches) or more from the body of all persons.

Explosive Device Proximity Warning

Warning: Do not operate a portable transmitter (such as a wireless network device) near unshielded blasting caps or in an explosive environment unless the device has been modified to be qualified for such use.

Antenna Warning

Warning: To comply with the FCC and ANSI C95.1 RF exposure limits, it is recommended for Intel® PRO/Wireless Network Connections installed in a desktop or portable computer, that the antenna for this device be installed so as to provide a separation distance of al least 20 cm (8 inches) from all persons and that the antenna must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or radio transmitter. It is recommended that the user limit exposure time if the antenna is positioned closer than 20 cm (8 inches).

Use On Aircraft Caution

Caution: Regulations of the FCC and FAA prohibit airborne operation of

XI

M645

Preface

radio-frequency wireless devices because their signals could interfere with critical aircraft instruments.

Other Wireless Devices

Safety Notices for Other Devices in the Wireless Network: Refer to the documentation supplied with wireless Ethernet adapters or other devices in the wireless network.

Using the Battery Pack

Battery Safety Tips

Replacing or handling the battery incorrectly may present a risk of fire or explosion, which could cause serious injury.

wOnly replace the main battery pack with the same or equivalent type of battery.

wDo not disassemble, short-circuit or incinerate batteries or expose them to temperatures above +60° C (+140° F).

wDo not temper with batteries. Keep them away from children.

wDo not use rusty or damaged batteries.

wDispose of batteries according to local regulations. Check with your local solid waste officials for details about recycling options or for proper disposal in your area.

Conserving Battery Power

Efficient battery power is critical to maintain a normal operation. If the battery power is not managed well, the saved data and customized settings may be lost.

Follow these tips to help optimizing battery life and avoid a sudden power loss.

wSuspend system operation if the system will be idle for a while or shorten the Suspend Timer’s time period.

wTurn off the system if you won’t be using it for a period of time.

wDisable unneeded settings or remove idle peripherals to conserve power.

wConnect an AC adapter to the system whenever possible.

Charging the Battery Pack

The battery pack can be recharged while it is installed in the Notebook. Please pay attention to the following tips before recharging the battery:

wIf a charged battery pack is not available, save your work and close all running programs and shut down the system or Save-to-Disk.

wPlug in an external AC/DC power source.

wYou can use the system, suspend system operation or shut down and turn off the system without interrupting the charging process.

wThe battery pack uses Lithium-ion battery cells that have no “memory effect.” You do not need to discharge the battery pack before you begin charging. However, to optimize the life of battery, we suggest that consuming the battery power completely once a month is necessary.

wIf you do not use the Notebook for a long time, it is suggested to remove the battery pack from your Notebook. This may be helpful to extend your battery life.

wThe actual charging time will be determined by the applications in use.

1.Cursor Movement Area

This pressure-sensitive area of the touchpad, allows you to place your finger on it and control the cursor on the screen by moving your finger.

2.Left Button

3.Right Button

Acts as the mouse’s left button.

2-32

M645

Getting Started

Using the Touchpad

Read the following description to learn how to use the touchpad:

nPositioning and Moving

Place your finger on the touchpad (usually using the forefinger), and the rectangular pad will act as a miniature duplicate of your display. When you move your fingertip across the pad, the cursor on the screen will move simultaneously in the same direction. When your finger reaches the edge of the pad, lift your finger and replace it on a proper location of the touchpad.

nPoint and Click

When you have moved and placed the cursor over an icon, a menu item or a command that you want to execute, simply tap slightly on the touchpad or press the left button to select. This procedure, called as point and click is the basics of operating your Notebook. Unlike the traditional pointing device such as the mouse, the whole touchpad can act as a left button, so that your each tap on the touchpad is equivalent to pressing the left button. Tapping twice more rapidly on the touchpad is to execute a double-click.

nDrag and Drop

You can move files or objects in your Notebook by using drag-and-drop. To do so, place the cursor on the desired item and slightly tap twice on the touchpad, and then keep your fingertip in contact with the touchpad on the second tap. Now, you can drag the selected item to the desired location by moving your finger on the touchpad, and then lift your finger from the touchpad to drop the item into place. Alternately, you can press and hold the left button when you select an item, and then move your finger to the

2-33

M645

desired location; finally, release the left button to finish the drag-and-drop operation.

Using the Touchpad

Move the cursor by sliding your fingertip.

Put your wrist on the desk comfortably.

nConfiguring the Touchpad

You can customize the pointing device to meet your personal needs. For example, if you are a left-hand user, you may want to swap the functions of the two buttons. In addition, you can change the size, shape, moving speed and other advanced features of the cursor on the screen.

To configure the touchpad, you can use the standard Microsoft or IBM PS/2 driver in your Windows operating system. The Mouse Properties in

Control Panel allows you to change the configuration.
