In suspend mode, the following occurs, in addition to standby mode:
- The LCD is powered off.
- The hard disk is powered off.
- The CPU stops.
Note: Suspend mode in Windows 98 is called standby mode in Windows 95.
Events that cause the computer to enter suspend mode:
- The Fn+F4 keys are pressed.
- The LCD cover is closed. If you add a check mark to the Will not suspend even if LCD is closed box in
the Power Management Properties window., the computer will not enter suspend mode even if the LCD is closed. The LCD
only turns off.
- The Suspend button is selected in the Fuel-Gauge program.
- The specified time has elapsed from the last operation with the keyboard,
mouse, hard disk drive, parallel connector, or diskette drive, or the AC Adapter is plugged in.
- In Windows 95, the timer is set by the Suspend Timer selection in the Power Properties window.
In Windows 98, the timer is set by the System standby timer selection in the Power Management Properties window.
- The battery power indicator blinks orange indicating that the battery power is low.
If you add a check mark to the Hibernate when battery becomes low box in the Power Management Properties window, the
computer enters hibernation mode under this condition.
NOTE: Even if you don't set the low-battery alarm, the charge indicator will let you
know that the battery is low, and then the ThinkPad will automatically enter the power-saving mode.
This default low-battery behavior is independent of the operating system, so the computer might behave differently from your
setting if you set the low-battery alarm. The computer chooses appropriately between your setting and the default setting.
NOTE: The computer cannot enter suspend mode if it is attached to a docking station.
The following events cause the computer to resume operation from suspend mode:
- The Fn key is pressed.
- The LCD cover is opened.
- The ring indicator (RI) is signaled by a serial or PC Card device.
- The power switch is turned on.
- The resume timer is set. In Windows 95, you can set the time with the Resume on timer selection in the
Power Management Properties window.
In Windows 98, the Scheduled Tasks setting has priority over the Resume on timer selection in the Power
Management Properties window.
NOTE: The computer does not accept any event immediately after it enters suspend mode.
Therefore, wait a few seconds before taking any action to reenter operation mode.
