HP Notebook PCs and Chromebooks - Enable ship mode for longer term storage

When storing a computer for a long period of time, the battery of the computer can reach a critical charge level, after which it cannot be recharged. This is a safety feature of the battery. To minimize battery drain, use ship mode when the computer must be stored for a long period of time.

Placing the computer in ship mode allows the battery to remain viable longer than when the computer is turned off. If a computer must be stored for a long period of time, such as a school break, place the computer in ship mode before storing.

Note:

Not all notebooks support ship mode. See the computer user guide to determine if it supports this feature.
