1Computer displayComputer displayThe high-resolution, thin-film transistor (TFT) display provides clear and brilliant text and graphics.
2Power/System-status indicatorsPower/System-status indicators

The power-status indicators show whether the computer is in standby, hibernation, or normal mode, and show the charge level of the battery.

Your computer has an indicator to show when the wireless LAN is in use, and four system-status indicators: Drive in use, Numeric lock, Caps lock, and Power on.

Note: Only models equipped with the wireless LAN function have the wireless LAN indicator.

3Power switchPower switch

Use the power switch to turn on the computer. To turn off your computer, use the Start menu shutdown options. The power switch can also be programmed to shut down the computer or put it into standby or hibernation.

Note: Standby by the power switch is not supported by Windows 98.

If you cannot turn off the computer by this method, press and hold the power switch for 2 seconds.

If your computer stops responding, and you cannot turn it off, press and hold the power switch for 4 seconds or more. If the system is still not reset, remove the ac adapter and the battery.

4Forward and Back keysForward and Back keysThe Forward and Back keys on your keyboard near the cursor-control keys are used with your Internet browser, such as Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer. They function like the forward and back arrows in the browser that move you back and forward to pages you have viewed in the order that you opened them.
5 TrackPoint pointing stickTrackPoint

The keyboard contains the unique TrackPoint cursor-pointing device. Pointing, selecting, and dragging are all part of a single process that you can perform without moving your fingers from typing position.

The TrackPoint and its buttons provide functions similar to those of a mouse and its buttons.
