Compatibility The ThinkPad 345C and CS system is designed to be compatible with the IBM Personal System/2 (*). The ThinkPad 345C and CS system contains BIOS/Easy Setup/Diagnostics in their Flash ROM and also provide a Graphical user interface to set up the system and power management features for OS/2 and Windows users. BIOS provides the hardware instructions and interfaces designed to support the standard features of the ThinkPad 345C and CS system and to maintain compatibility with many software programs currently operating under DOS and OS/2 on the Personal Computer XT(TM) , Personal Computer AT(*) and the IBM Personal System/2 family. The high performance BIOS uses 96KB of system memory. Limitations: o If additional Operating systems and/or applications software are added to what is already pre-loaded on the system, the user may want to install additional system memory to improve performance. o When the PC Card Director is used with IBM OS/2, the user must install the PC Card Director for OS/2 that is on the PCMCIA Card Director Diskette. PC Card Director for Windows cannot be used under the Win-OS/2 environment. o The system has been designed so that the customer can install or remove the PCMCIA card without turning off the system if the PCMCIA card supports this function. Refer to the instructions that come with the PCMCIA card. o PC Card point enablers may write directly to the hardware, bypassing Socket and Card Services. Writing directly to the hardware may cause problems that can not be anticipated. Also point enablers may interfere with Client Device Drivers that do communicate with Socket and Card Services. Additional customer testing in their specific environments is recommended. o High Speed PCMCIA Data/Fax Modem v.32bis data compression is limited by applications that utilize the BIOS controlling the serial port. Data compression for applications that do not bypass the BIOS is limited to 19.2Kbpc. Many applications bypass the BIOS , hence, they allow data compression approaching the theoretical limit of 57.6Kbps or four times the data compression. Suspend Mode Operational Considerations: o Do NOT remove or install PC cards during Suspend mode. o When the computer communicates with other systems via any communication PC card, the following precautions must be kept in mind before using the Suspend function. WHEN THE COMPUTER IS POWERED BY THE BATTERY PACK: the computer automatically turns power off to the PC card before entering Suspend mode so that the duration of Suspend mode will last longer. Therefore, the computer will not restore the communications application when it returns to normal operation from Suspend mode. To reestablish communication after Suspend mode, restart the system or the application program. Setting the automatic power saving timer (SYSTEM SUSPEND) in the Set Advanced Features Menu is valid when entering suspend mode when any PC card is in use. on-disruptive battery exchange allows the user to put the system in Suspend mode and exchange battery packs without any loss of data or function

Security, Auditability and Control

Passwords: A Power-on Password (POP) protects the system from unauthorized use. If a POP is set, the password prompt appears:
- Each time the system is turned on
- When the system is returned to normal operation from suspend mode by
  opening the LCD of the computer or by pressing the Fn key.
  If the return to normal operation is caused by the timer
  or an incoming call through modem, the password prompt does not appear.
The LCD remains blank until the correct password is entered. Physical Security: The user can attach an optional Kensington MicroSaverTM lock to the keyhole on the side of the computer. This prevents the keyboard from opening and secures the internal devices. User management is responsible for evaluation, selection and implementation of security features, administrative procedures and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.
