Power



























AC Adapter

  • AC
    adapter: This ac-to-dc converter supplies the necessary power to the
    computer. The ac adapter also charges the battery pack when it is
    installed in the computer.

  • Universal AC adapter (72 W):

    • Input is 100/240V AC, 1.4/0.7A, 50/60Hz
    • Output is 16 V dc, 4.5


Battery

  • The
    battery pack is an internal power source to the computer when the ac
    adapter is not available. The battery pack is rechargeable and is
    charged using the ac adapter with the system.
  • You can manage the battery power by using the Battery MaxiMiser and Power Management Features utility.
  • A
    different Li-Ion battery pack fits into the Ultrabay Slim so that two
    batteries can be installed to increase battery operating time.
  • A six or nine cell Li-Ion battery pack is shipped with the system.

  • Li-Ion battery pack:

    • six cell, 10.8V, 4.4Ah
    • nine cell, 10.8V, 6.6Ah


  • Approximate operation and charging hours are:

    • Power off/suspend charging (*1): 3.6hr
    • Charging during operation (*1)(*2): 3.6 to 6.0 hr

    • Battery operation times(*2):

      • Six cell Up to 5.5 hours
      • Nine cell Up to 7.5 hours
      • Nine cell plus bay battery Up to 9.5 hours




Notes:




(*1) Recharge time also varies.

(*2) These model numbers achieved eTesting Labs, Inc.'s BatteryMark
4.0.1 or the Ziff Davis Media Inc.'s Business Winstone 2002
BatteryMarkTM Version 1.0 Battery Rundown Time of at least the times
shown above. This test was performed without independent verification
by VeriTest testing division of Lionbridge Technologies, Inc.
("VeriTest") nor Ziff Davis Media Inc.; neither Ziff Davis Media Inc.
nor VeriTest makes any representations or warranties as to these test
results. A description of the environment under which the test was
performed is available at: www.ibm.com/pc/ww/thinkpad/batterylife.html.
Battery life (and recharge times) will vary based on many factors
including screen brightness, applications, features, power management,
battery conditioning and other customer preferences.



















Security



























System

  • Security Chip on selected models
  • Locking device in the security slot provides physical security.
  • The
    ThinkPad Embedded Security Subsystem (TCPA compliant) provides for
    authentication and encryption of data communications. The integrated
    802.11b wireless lets you connect to a LAN without wires or cables. To
    connect to the Internet, the optional ThinkPad High Rate Wireless
    Access Point 500 and an Internet phone number are required.

Password


  • A Power-on password (POP) protects the system from unauthorized use. If
    a POP is set, the password prompt appears:
    • Each time the system is turned on

  • When the system is returned to normal operation from suspend mode

  • A Supervisor Password provides a higher level of security than the POP.
    The Supervisor Password protects the system functions from being used
    by unauthorized users,and protects the hardware configuration from
    unauthorized modification. The Supervisor Password prompt appears:
    • When the BIOS setup screen is accessed.


  • A HDD Password (HDP) protects HDD data from unauthorized users. Once
    HDP is set, data on the HDD cannot be accessed without the correct HDP.
    Because the HDP is stored in the HDD, the data remains protected even
    if the HDD is removed to another system. The HDP password prompt
    appears:
    • Each time the system is turned on

Wow It really seems like mister here did his homework! Great effort in constructing this information, I really got a new sense of what's going on. Well, at least we can call it an update to what I already knew. But it's good to have yourself really looking into this stuff and putting it out there. I probably would have not investigated this material in wow g-d knows how long. I can really say I picked up some knowledge from this piece and you can most definitely count me referring some readers to your page, thanks! Really enjoyed and it was my pleasure to read on!
