    battery charged for school each day.

Carrying Laptops
  • Laptops should always be carried within the
    carrying case.
  • The carrying case can hold other objects (such as
    folders and workbooks), but these must be kept to
    a minimum to avoid placing too much pressure and
    weight on the laptop screen.
  • The laptop must be turned off before placing it
    in the carrying case.

5
Safe Guards
  • Your laptop is identified with the following
    These should be on your equipment at all times!!
  • A tag on the case.
  • Labels on the laptop and power adaptor.
  • Dont save your passwords on your laptop.
  • You should save all important work files to your
    CD.
  • NEVER allow anyone else to use your laptop.
  • Do NOT place anything heavy on the laptop.

6
Laptop Care
  • Do not lean on the top of the laptop when it is
    closed.
  • Do not place anything on the laptop that could
    put pressure on the screen.
  • Do not place anything in the carrying case that
    will press against the top of the laptop.
  • Do not place food or drink bottles in your case.

7
Laptop Care Cont……
  • Do not touch the screen.
  • Do not place anything on the keyboard before
    closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, disks, etc).
  • Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth.
  • An old cotton T-shirt works great!!!

8
Laptop Care
  • If your hands are extremely dirty, wash them
    before using the computer.
  • Dont leave your computer in a very dusty or
    dirty environment.
  • Keep the laptop away from magnetic fields
    generated from magnets, electrical appliances,
    and so forth.

9
More……
  • Dust off the screen using a dry, lint-free, soft
    cloth. Do not press too hard on the screen, as
    that can cause damage to the LCD panel.
  • Do not spray any type of cleaning agent directly
    onto any part of your laptop (fluids are bad).

Just a few more…

    organized.

take care of the equipment.
