Using Your Notebook Computer n N 46 Using Power Saving Modes Sony Notebook Computer User Guide If the battery level falls to below 10 percent, you should either attach the AC adapter to recharge the battery or shut down your computer and insert a fully charged battery. Using Power Saving Modes When you use a battery as the source of power for your computer, you can take advantage of power management settings to conserve battery life. In addition to the normal operating mode, which allows you to turn off specific devices, your computer has two distinct power saving modes: System Suspend and System Hibernation. When using battery power, you should be aware that the computer automatically enters System Hibernation mode when the remaining battery charge drops below 7 percent, regardless of the power management setting you select. See your Software Guide in Controlling Power Management for more information. If you press the power button and hold for more than four seconds, the computer will switch off automatically. When the computer is in System Suspend or System Hibernation mode, you cannot insert a disk. When returning from System Hibernation mode, the system status stored on the hard disk is erased and the computer starts normally if you slide the power switch and hold for more than four seconds.
