HP Jornada 560 Series Pocket PC and 928 Wireless Digital Assistant - Managing Power

Managing power
Because the data and files saved on the HP Jornada are stored in RAM (Random Access Memory), maintaining a continuous power supply to the HP Jornada at all times is extremely important. If the HP Jornada runs out of power, all information stored in RAM is lost. Although the operating system and programs written to the HP Safe Store folder cannot be erased, any entered information, added programs, and custom settings are erased if power to the device is lost.
 note:
Data stored in Flash ROM on a CompactFlash card will be saved, even if the HP Jornada PC loses power. To protect the data, use HP Jornada backup to back up regularly to Flash ROM or to a CompactFlash card.
Battery endurance
How long the device can operate without recharging the battery depends on the features and functions used most. Under typical use conditions, the battery included with the HP Jornada will provide approximately 12 hours of use (without the backlight). Note that some functions, such as listening to music or using CompactFlash cards, use considerable power and may reduce this time significantly.
Low battery
When the HP Jornada displays a dialog box warning of low power, respond as soon as possible by recharging the main battery or replacing the backup battery. If you continue to use the HP Jornada until power reaches a critical low condition, a “Battery very low” message appears, and the HP Jornada shuts down automatically. The HP Jornada will not function unless it is connected to AC power. The backup battery does not provide enough power to operate the HP Jornada; it is intended only to preserve the data until the main battery can be recharged.
Charging the battery
Because the main battery is charged automatically whenever the HP Jornada is connected to AC power, simply connect the AC power adapter or place the HP Jornada in the USB cradle (connected to AC power) to recharge it when the power is low. While the HP Jornada is connected to AC power, the Notification button/LED indicates the charging status:
  • Amber indicates that the battery is charging (connected to AC power).
  • Green indicates that the battery is fully charged.
Checking the remaining power
The remaining power is displayed on a status bar in the Power control panel. Under certain conditions, the Power Status icon is displayed on the Command bar in the Today screen. Simply tap the Power Status icon to open the Power control panel.
  1. On the Start menu, tap Settings.
  2. On the System tab, tap the Power icon.
Power tips
Follow these tips to ensure the longest use of the HP Jornada between charges:
  • Turn off the backlight. Use the Backlight control panel to set the backlight to turn off after a short period of inactivity.
  • Turn off the display manually. For playing music or using other functions that do not require the display, turn off the display by pressing and holding the NOTIFICATION button/LED. (Turn on the display by pressing the NOTIFICATION button/LED again.)
  • Suspend frequently. Use the Power control panel to shorten the length of continuous idle time before the HP Jornada auto-suspends.
  • Press the POWER button to turn off the HP Jornada when it is not in use, even for a short time.
  • Always use AC power when connecting the HP Jornada to a desktop PC. Note that the HP Jornada will not auto-suspend while it is connected.
  • Turn off sounds. Use the HP Jornada settings application to mute the speaker, or use the Sound & Volume control panel to turn on only the most necessary system sounds.
  • Avoid using CompactFlash card accessories while on battery power. Some CompactFlash cards use considerable power and will quickly drain your battery.
  • Do not “listen” for Infrared transfers. Although you can set your HP Jornada to constantly monitor the infrared port for files sent from other devices, doing so will quickly drain the batteries.
  • Use the AC adapter to plug your HP Jornada into external power whenever possible, especially when connecting to a desktop PC, when using a CompactFlash Card modem, network interface card (NIC), or other peripheral.
  • Do not let the alarm notification LED flash for a long time.
