  1. 1. QuickTimeª and a TIFF (Uncompressed) decompressor are needed to see this picture. iBook Care iBook Care Whether you’re a teacher, student, or parent in HCPS, you need to know how to take care of a laptop. Proper care of these expensive machines is everyone’s responsibility. This guide will give you tips on taking care of the iBook. First, let’s take a look at the outside of the iBook. The iBook battery is located on the bottom of the iBook. Do not remove this battery. You can check the power by pressing the button. Four lights indicate full power. It is the responsibility of every student to bring a fully charged iBook to school daily. The charger port is located on the right of the iBook. To charge, plug in the charger until it lights up. If it does not light up, it is not charging. It is safe to leave the iBook plugged in overnight.
  2. 2. Always plug in the iBook near an outlet and do not stretch the cord. Stretching the cord increases the chance that someone will trip over it and break the tip of the charger in the computer. This repair can take several days! Take special care of your charger. Wind it up when not in use and never leave it unattended. The CD/DVD tray is located next to the charger port. Insert with the shiny side down. If a CD or DVD gets stuck in the computer, try holding down the mouse when the computer restarts. If this does not work, do not attempt to pry it open or stick objects into the tray. This will cause permanent damage to the laser in your CD drive.
  3. 3. The iBook is equipped with several ports on the left hand side. The included ports are a modem, Ethernet, firewire, 2 USB ports, video port, and a headphone jack. To open the iBook, press on the silver button and gently lift the screen. Do not push the screen back too far as it will cause the hinge to break and your screen to stop working. Special care should be taken when moving the laptop. Picking it up from the screen will cause the hinge to break and will cause the screen to stop working. Walking with the laptop open is a disaster waiting to happen. Always close your laptop when walking. Should your screen ever get dirty, you can clean it with water and a soft tissue ONLY. Never use cleaners on the iBook screen or case! To turn on the laptop, press the power button located in the upper right hand corner.
  4. 4. The laptop will come to a blue screen and then to your login screen. Teachers and students should change computer passwords upon receiving the iBook. To operate the mouse, it is best to use one hand and make an “L” shape. The iBook is also capable of two-finger scrolling.
