Hanlin v5 Newbie Questions

I'm still playing with my Hanlin v5 after getting it the other day. I've got a couple of questions.

a) Do I need to turn it off when I'm not using it, or can I just leave on the last page I had open? What is better for the battery?

b) I've got a Powerbook with OS X 10.4. When I connect the Hanlin to the computer via the USB stick, it appears as a mounted drive when I click the OK button on the Hanlin. So far so good. But when I try and disconnect the Hanlin through the OS, it immediately remounts itself. Even clicking extra quickly to eject it doesn't do any good as soon as I tell the software to disconnect it, it reconnects. I have to pull the USB cord out manually. When I do this, I get a warning that my Hanlin could be damaged because I didn't dismount the drive properly. Any ideas?

There is typically no need to turn off Hanlin's when they are not being used. The battery will still last for weeks. You can lock the keyboard if you need to.

I typically exit the ebook, back to the file menu, to ensure that the last read location is saved. I'm not sure this is necessary though.

I leave mine turned on all the time, since sleep power consumption is very low. THe way that I use mine I think that I get longer battery run time that way, since otherwise I would be turning it on and off multiple times during the day. If you only turn on once a day the battery might last a little longer by turning it off. I guess what I am trying to say is that usage patterns probably make a difference in which gives the longest battery charge life. The boot up has the processor running at full speed for quite a bit of time, and that does load the battery heavily then. I have mine on for weeks at a time without charging the battery.

Sorry, but I do know anything about your Mac question.

When the indicator light is not flashing,right-click the "Removable disk"icon on your computar,then select "Eject" from the menu,only then it's safe to disconnect the USB cable.

Hi Allen,

My main problem is that I'm on a Mac (OS X 10.4), not Windows. To eject a mounted drive, like a USB stick, normally I just click the eject arrow where it appears and I can remove it. With the Hanlin connected, when I click on the Finder window to eject it, it quickly remounts itself again before I can pull the cord. Any ideas?

Hi,Khelbiros
After you click on the finder window to eject,you can pull out USB cable,it's OK. Don't care of remounting.
