[. . . ] Instead it employs a lid switch, located near the center of the display hinge, that tells the notebook when it should wake up or go to sleep.
When you close the display lid, the notebook enters suspend-to-memory or suspend-to-disk mode before turning off the power, depending on the When Lid is Closed parameter setting in Setup (see section 6. 5. 1). When you open the lid, the notebook resumes from where you left off before closing the lid. Suspend-to-memory, suspend-to-disk and other power management issues are discussed in detail in section 3. 2.
The "Lid Closed" State When the lid is closed (i. e. , the "lid closed" state), the notebook suspends its normally busy tasks to make itself electronically and mechanically more stable. When the lid is opened, the notebook briefly checks its environment and always re-initializes devices newly added in or removed from the notebook. [. . . ] To simplify the keyboard legend, the cursor-control key symbols are not printed. Table 2-3 tells how to use the embedded keypad.

The eject menu commands allow you to perform various eject-related functions for the notebook. This option forces the notebook to enter suspend-to-disk mode, so that you can replace the battery with a charged one, and then return to where you left off. To resume, close the display lid and open the display lid again.
Open the CD-ROM drive. These slots accept credit-card-sized cards that enhance the usability and expandability of the notebook. PC Cards (formerly PCMCIA) are add-on cards for portable computers, giving you expansion possibilities long afforded by desktop PCs. Common type II cards include flash memory, SRAM, fax/data modem, LAN and SCSI cards. Type III cards most often used are 1. 8-inch ATA drives and cellular modems.
Inserting a Card
Insert the card into the desired slot and make the proper connections (e. g. , network cable), if necessary. For type III cards, insert the card into the lower (bottom) slot.
Ejecting a Card
1. Flip out the slot eject button of the slot where the card is inserted.
Press the slot eject button to eject the card.
If you want to install a card, refer to your card's user's manual for details on how to install and use the card. Multimedia Ports Connecting external audio devices to these ports automatically shuts off the corresponding internal audio device. For example, if you connect external speakers, the internal speakers automatically shut off.
To use Mic-in or Line in, insert the plug of the desired device and make sure to turn off the appropriate input from the mixer. See the multimedia section of your Windows 95 manual.

Standard notebook configuration includes 16-bit stereo audio with built-in FM synthesizer. [. . . ] Not only can you transfer data between two SIR-capable computers, you can also send data to SIR-"aware" peripherals like infrared printers without the need to connect cables. The infrared port is IrDA-compliant, allowing it to transfer data with speeds of up to 115. 2 kilobits per second (kbps) at a distance of up to one meter. Using the Infrared Port Line up the SIR ports of the two SIR"aware" devices no more than one meter apart and no greater than ±15 degrees. Begin the file transfer program on both machines and you're ready to go. [. . . ]
