TERTIARY FUNCTIONS OF APPLICATION AND NAVIGATION BUTTONS
While you are booting up your system, the Application
Buttons and Navigation buttons can be used for entering
and navigating through the Basic Input-Output System
(BIOS), and for invoking the Advanced Options Menu,
where you can enter different modes (such as Safe
Mode).
The BIOS is a program and a set of parameters that are
stored in ROM, which tests and operates your Tablet PC
from when you turn it on until it loads your installed
operating system from disk. Information from the BIOS
is transferred to the operating system to provide it with
information on the configuration and status of the hard-
ware.
The system is booting up while the Fujitsu logo is
displayed immediately after turning on the system. The
table below indicates how the buttons act while the
system is booting up and while you are in the BIOS.

Using Your Stylistic ST4000
Using the Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC
This chapter covers the fundamental concepts, basic
system operation and use, and system functions of the
Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC. Y ou should familiarize
yourself with this information before you attempt to
operate the system.
SYSTEM STATES
Before you begin using the Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet
PC, review the different system states (or modes) that the
system can use. Being familiar with these states will help
you determine whether it is appropriate to turn on,
resume, suspend, hibernate or shut down the system
when you begin or end a session. System behavior for
each system state is described briefly in the following,
with each system state listed in decreasing order of power
usage:
 On state: The system is running and the display
screen is on.
 Idle state: Some system functions are regulated or
turned off to conserve power. The display screen may
be turned off. The system returns to the On state
when pen activity or other input is detected.
 Suspend-to-RAM mode (S3): System operation is
suspended. Most system functions are turned off to
conserve power. Power to memory is on, maintaining
data in programs that were running before system
operation was suspended. The system does not
respond to the pen or other input when in Suspend-
to-RAM mode. Refer to the “Resuming System
Operation” section later in this chapter for
information on returning the system to the On state.
 Hibernate mode (Save-to-Disk) (S4): System
operation is suspended. All system functions are
turned off to conserve power. Active data in programs
that were running before suspending system
operation is stored on the hard disk drive. The system
does not respond to the pen or other input. Refer to
the “Resuming System Operation” section later in this
chapter for information on returning the system to
the On state.
 Off state: All system functions are turned off to
conserve power. The system does not respond to the
pen or other input. The system boots at the next
system power-on.
Y our system may be configured to enter some of these
states automatically after a period of inactivity to
conserve battery power.
When you use the Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC, you
can change the current system state in a number of ways,
depending on the system’s current state. T o determine the
current system state, observe the Power icon in the Status
display. Table 2-1 on page 20 gives the different system
states represented by the Power icon and describes how
you can change the system state from the current state.
POINT
Prior to using your system, be sure to fully charge the
battery if you plan to run on battery power. Failure to
do so may result in erratic performance.
POINT
The system consumes the same amount of power
whether it is in Hibernate (Save-to-Disk) mode or the
Off state.
Alb_UG_Active B.book Page 19 Monday, October 21, 2002 12:15 PM20
Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC User’s Guide – Section Two

Table 2-1 Changing System States
* Information in Table 2-1 on page 20 is supplied to help you understand which system states your system can enter from
the current system state. Refer to the procedures on starting the system, shutting down the system, suspending system
operation, and resuming system operation given later in this chapter.

Your system may be configured to use either Suspend-to-RAM mode or Hibernate mode.
POWERING UP THE TABLET PC
Follow the procedure below to start the Stylistic ST4000
Series Tablet PC. Before you begin, confirm that the
system is in the Off state. To do so, observe the Status
display. If the Power icon is not visible in the Status
display, the system is in Off state or in Hibernate (Save-
to-Disk) mode and it is safe to perform this procedure. If
the Power icon is visible (either blinking or on continu-
ously), do not perform this procedure. See “System
States” earlier in this chapter for details on modes repre-
sented by the Power icon.
1. Ensure that the battery in your Tablet PC is
sufficiently charged, or connect an external power
source such as the AC adapter or auto adapter to
your Tablet PC.
2. Press the Power On/Suspend/Resume button to start
the system.
After performing initialization, the system starts the
operating system installed on the hard disk drive. Once
the operating system is running, you can use the system.
SHUTTING DOWN THE SYSTEM
Follow these steps to shut down and turn off your
system:
1. If system operation has been suspended, resume
system operation. See “Resuming System Opera-
tion” later in this chapter for details.
2. Save your work and close all running programs.
3. Choose Shut Down from the Windows Start menu.
4. Carry out the Shut Down command.
The system is now in the Off state.
SUSPENDING SYSTEM OPERATION
The Tablet PC allows you to suspend the system opera-
tion without closing programs or exiting the operating
system. Use this feature to conserve battery power when
a system shutdown is not practical or when the battery
needs to be changed.

POINT
If you have set your system to turn power off from the
Power Options utility in the Control Panel, the
following procedure will not be possible, since pressing
the button shuts the system down rather than
suspending it. To change your power options, go to
Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Power Options.
Alb_UG_Active B.book Page 20 Monday, October 21, 2002 12:15 PM21
Using Your Stylistic ST4000
T o suspend system operation:
1. Press the Suspend/Resume button, or carry out the
Standby command from your operating system or
power management program. (If your system is
configured to suspend operation using Hibernate
(Save-to-Disk) mode, which is explained later in this
procedure, a message is displayed while data is saved
to your hard disk.)

2. The Power icon either flashes (Suspend-to-RAM) or
is not displayed (Hibernate) when system operation
is suspended, depending on how your system is
configured. At this point, programs that were
running are stopped, active data is saved, and the
system enters one of two different low-power states,
or suspend modes, as explained in the following
paragraphs.
3. Observe the Power icon in the Status display to deter-
mine which suspend mode your system is using.
 Power icon is blinking: Suspend-to-RAM mode.
In this mode, active data is saved by maintaining
power to RAM while most other system components
are powered off. The Battery Gauge icon in the Status
display indicates the battery charge level.
 Power icon is not displayed: Hibernate (Save-to-Disk)
mode.

In this mode, active data is stored on the hard disk
drive and power usage is reduced to the same level
used in the Off state. When the system is in Hibernate
mode, the Battery Gauge icon is not visible in the
Status display. In this mode, there is no danger of
losing data if battery power is lost.
If you have successfully performed this procedure,
system operation is now suspended. Refer to
“Resuming System Operation” later in this chapter to
resume system operation. Also, note the following
with regard to suspending system operation:
 Y ou can remove the battery while the system is in
Suspend-to-RAM or Hibernate modes in order to
install a charged battery. T o prevent losing unsaved
data, wait until system operation has suspended
before you remove the battery. Note that after you
remove the battery, you have approximately five
minutes to replace it with a new battery or to plug in a
power supply before the bridge battery is depleted.
 Y our system may be configured to suspend operation
automatically after a period of inactivity.
 Y our system may be configured to enter Hibernate
mode automatically after a period of time in Suspend-
to-RAM mode.
 The system uses a small amount of battery power
when in Suspend-to-RAM mode. Eventually, the
battery will become fully discharged.
 If the battery charge drops to a Low-Battery Warning
level while the system is running, the system will beep
periodically. If this occurs, suspend system operation,
shut down the system, or attach an external power
source, such as the AC adapter, to the Tablet PC.
 If the battery charge drops to a Critically Low level
while the system is running, the system is forced into
a pre-selected mode (Suspend-to-RAM or
Hibernate). If this occurs, you must either install a
charged battery, or connect an appropriate external
power source such as the AC adapter before you can
resume system operation. (If the battery charge drops
to a Critically Low level while the system is in
Suspend-to-RAM mode, the system stays in Suspend-
to-RAM mode until power is restored or totally
dissipated.)
 Suspending system operation interrupts data
communications; therefore, some programs may
block the system from suspending to prevent an
interruption.
 The suspend action of the Suspend/Resume button
may be disabled to prevent accidental interruption. If
this is the case, pressing the Suspend/Resume button
will not suspend system operation as described here.
(In this case, suspend mode can only be achieved
using the system software). Contact your local help
desk or reseller if your system configuration is not
suitable.
CAUTION
If you are replacing the battery, wait until system
operation is suspended and the power icon is flashing
before you remove the battery. Failure to do so could
result in loss of your unsaved data. (Note that if the
Resume On LAN function is enabled in the BIOS setup,
you should not remove the battery unless the system is
shut down. When Resume ON LAN is enabled, the
bridge battery is disabled in order to optimize battery
life.)
POINT
If you will not be using the system for an extended
period of time, shut down the system rather than using
Suspend-to-RAM mode.

Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC User’s Guide – Section Two
 If your system is equipped with a PC Card that allows
you to connect to a wired or wireless network, you
may be logged off the network after a period of
inactivity while system operation is suspended.
Contact your network administrator or help desk, or
call Fujitsu Service and Support at 1-800-8Fujitsu (1-
800-838-5487) for details on log-off parameters for
your network.
RESUMING SYSTEM OPERATION
T o resume operation from either Suspend-to-RAM or
Hibernate modes, press the Suspend/Resume button.
 From Suspend-to-RAM mode
Status lights indicate that the system state is
changing. It may take up to a minute before the
system returns to the On state and system operation
resumes. Note that the display turns on shortly
before the pen becomes active due to the power-up
sequences observed by the system.
 From Hibernate (Save-to-Disk) mode
Active data is read from the hard disk drive, and the
system returns to the On state after a short time.
 Use the system as you normally would once system
operation resumes.
All programs resume at the point where execution
stopped when system operation was suspended.
ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY BRIGHTNESS
There are two ways to adjust the brightness of your
display:

Click the Tablet icon in the system tray at the bottom
right of the screen. (When the cursor is on top of the
icon, a message stating “Change tablet and pen set-
tings” is displayed.) When the Tablet and Pen Settings
window appears, select the Display tab, and move the
Screen Brightness slider to change the brightness.

Click Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Tablet and
Pen Settings. Select the Display tab, and move the
Screen Brightness slider to change the brightness.
USING THE PEN
Y ou can use the Stylistic ST4000 Series pen to generate
and create electronic “ink” , to select items, and to navi-
gate through programs on the Tablet PC. Programs that
support handwriting recognition also allow you to write
characters directly on the screen with the pen. Y ou can
also use the pen as a drawing tool.
Figure 2-1. Stylistic ST4000 Series Pen
The screen reacts when the pen tip is approximately 1/8
inch (3-5mm) from the screen. The pen has three
switches: a tip switch and a barrel button toggle switch
with switches at both ends. When activated, the tip
switch corresponds to the left mouse button, and the
front toggle (closest to the pen tip) barrel button switch,
when used in combination with the tip switch, corre-
POINT
Note that power to several system components must be
restored before system operation resumes. Allow
sufficient time for system operation to resume before
attempting to use the system. If your system uses
Hibernate mode, it will take longer to resume operation
as compared to using Suspend-to-RAM mode. Time is
needed to read data from the hard disk drive.
POINT
Depending upon whether you are running your system
on battery or AC power, the default screen brightness
settings will be different. The screen brightness default
for running on battery is lower than that on AC power
in order to optimize battery life.
POINT
The Stylistic ST4000 pen is a sophisticated, high-quality
electronic instrument that can be damaged if used
improperly. Treat the pen as you would any precision
device. The following list contains guidelines for proper
pen handling:
 Do not gesture with the pen, use it as a pointer, or
tap it on surfaces other than the Tablet PC screen.
 Do not try to turn the thumb grip on the pen; it is
designed for inserting and removing the pen from
the pen holder and for attaching a pen tether.
 Never store the pen with the tip bearing the weight
of the pen (e.g., sitting tip down in a pencil cup).
Storing the pen tip down could distort the internal
mechanism over a period of time (especially in higher
temperatures), causing the tip to act as if it is always
depressed. To avoid damage, the pen should be
stored in the pen holder when not in use.

sponds to the right mouse button. The rear toggle of the
barrel button switch acts as an electronic ink “eraser” .

Here are some hints that may help you use the pen more
effectively:
 T o activate the tip switch, tap or hold the pen tip
against the screen.
 T o activate the barrel button switch, press and hold
the end of the button you wish to use (front toggle is
the right mouse button switch; the rear toggle acts as
an electronic “eraser” .
 To move the cursor, hold the pen tip within 1/8 inch
(3 – 5mm) from the screen and move the pen.
 To start a program, double-tap the pen tip (tap the
pen tip twice rapidly) on the program icon as you
would double-click a mouse.
 T o select an object, tap the pen tip on the object once.
 To “double-click” an object, tap twice on the object
quickly.
 T o move, or “drag” , an object on the screen, place the
pen tip directly over the object, then as you hold the
pen tip against the screen, move the pen.
CALIBRATING THE PEN
For information about calibrating your pen, refer to the
literature that came with the operating system.
INSTALLING A PEN TETHER
T o prevent dropping or losing your pen, you should
attach it to your system using the pen tether that is
included with the system.
T o attach the pen tether to your Tablet PC, perform the
following steps:
1. Attach the end of the pen tether with the smaller loop
to your pen. Do do so, push the end of the tether
through the hole in the pen, then thread the opposite
end of the tether through the loop. (See Figure 2-2.)
Figure 2-2. Installing a Pen Tether
2. Attach the end of the pen tether with the larger loop
to the attachment point on your pen tablet. T o do so,
insert the end of the pen tether through the attach-
ment point, then feed the pen through the large loop
in the tether.
REPLACING THE PEN TIP
With use, the pen tip may become worn or may pick up
foreign particles that can scratch the screen. A damaged
or worn tip may not move freely, causing unpredictable
results when using the pen. If your pen exhibits these
problems, you should replace the pen tip. T o do so, use
the pen tip removal tool included with your pen.
Figure 2-3. Tip Removal Tool
T o remove the tip, position the tip in the gap between the
two ends of the tool. Pinch the tool together so the tip is
firmly clasped, then pull it from the barrel. If the tip is
worn or damaged, discard it.
T o replace the tip, retrieve one of the new tips that
accompanied your pen. Insert the flat end of the tip into
the barrel and push it in firmly until it is seated.
If you need more tips, they can be ordered from the
Fujitsu Web site at: www.fujitsupc.com.
CAUTION
 Ensure that a screen protector is installed on the
Tablet PC screen before you use the pen. The
warranty does not cover a scratched screen.
Use only the pen provided with your Tablet PC. Do
not use substitutes that were not designed for the
Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC.

CHARGING THE BATTERY
The Stylistic ST4000 Series battery can be charged while
it is installed in the Tablet PC.
To do so:
1. Connect a DC power source, such as the AC adapter,
to the DC input connector on the Tablet PC. The
DC Input icon appears in the Status display. If the
battery charge is below 90%, the battery begins
charging and the Charging icon appears in the
Status display. If the battery charge is 90% or higher
when you connect DC power, the battery will not
charge, preventing battery overcharging.
2. Look at the Battery Gauge icon in the Status display
to determine the percent of charge in the battery. See
“Status Display” in Chapter 1 of this manual for a
description of the Battery Gauge icon.
As long as DC power remains connected to the Tablet PC,
the charging process continues until the battery charge
reaches 100%. Charge times shown in Table 2-2,
“Battery Charging Time” are for a fully discharged
battery charging both while the T ablet PC is and is not in
use.
Table 2-2 Battery Charging Time
* Depends upon the applications in use.
Also note the following with respect to charging the
battery:
 Y ou can use the system, suspend system operation, or
shut down and turn off the system without
interrupting the charging process; however, using the
system while the battery is charging will cause the
battery to charge at a slower rate, as noted in Table 2-
2, “Battery Charging Time”.
 As noted in the procedure above, the system will not
begin charging the battery if the battery charge level
is 90% or higher when the system is initially
connected to external DC power. (This prevents the
battery from being overcharged.)
 The battery uses Lithium ion battery cells which have
no “memory effect.” Y ou do not need to discharge
the battery before you begin charging.
REMOVING AND INSTALLING THE BATTERY
The battery can be removed from the Tablet PC and
swapped with a charged battery. The battery can then be
charged in an external charger if one is available. To
remove the battery from the Tablet PC:
1. Choose one of the following:
 If a charged battery is available, you can suspend
system operation. A built-in “bridge” battery will
maintain the system in Suspend-to-RAM mode for
about 5 minutes while the battery is removed; this
allows time for replacement with a charged battery.
 If a charged battery is not available, save your work
and close all running programs, then shut down
the system or Hibernate (Save-to-Disk).
 Plug in an external DC power source.
2. Slide the battery release latch in the direction
indicated. (See Figure 2-4 on page 24 for location).
3. Pull the battery away from the system, as shown in
the illustration and remove the battery from the
Tablet PC.
If you are using an external battery charger, refer to the
instructions provided with the battery charger.
To install the battery:
1. Orient the battery with the slides in the empty
battery tray. Slide the battery into the tray and press
it firmly until it is seated. When it is properly seated,
the battery release latch should return to position
and lock the battery.
Figure 2-4. Removing the Battery
Once the battery is installed, you can resume system
operation or start and use your system normally.

Using Your Stylistic ST4000
TIPS FOR CONSERVING BATTERY POWER
Y ou can extend the charge life of your battery by
conserving battery power. (Y our results may vary
depending on your application and how the system is
configured.) Here are some suggestions to help you
conserve battery power:
 Use an external power source such as the AC adapter
whenever the system is docked.
 Suspend system operation if you know that you won’t
be using the system for a while.
 Shut down the system if you won’t be using the system
for an extended period of time.
 Use power management (available on the desktop) to
help you conserve power automatically.
 Battery life is dependent upon the operating system,
power settings, and applications in use.
Operation of the Bridge Battery
When installed in the Tablet PC, the battery provides
power to some system components—even when the
system is in the Off state. When the battery is removed,
power is supplied to these components by a “bridge”
battery that is built into the Tablet PC.
The bridge battery is not designed for long-term opera-
tion. T o maintain the bridge battery properly, observe the
following measures:
 T o prevent draining the bridge battery, always store
the system with a charged battery installed.
 If the bridge battery becomes drained, it takes
