Does Mind's built-in battery allow it to function normally when the power supply is detached?
Mind’s built-in battery capacity is 5.55Wh, which supports standby for about 25 hours when the device sleeps or hibernates. To turn on and use the device, the power adapter needs to be connected. It is not recommended to use the built-in battery as a standalone power supply.
How do I set the system mode that Mind enters after power is disconnected? What's the difference between each mode?
There are 4 system modes that Mind can enter upon disconnecting power: remain awake, sleep, hibernate, and turn off the monitor.
- Remain Awake: After disconnecting power, the device will remain awake and the CPU will run at a reduced speed. When the battery power drops below 10% (after about 30 minutes), the system will automatically force a shutdown.
- Sleep: After disconnecting power, the device will go to sleep. After reconnecting power, the device will reawaken automatically.
- Hibernate: After disconnecting power, the device will hibernate. After reconnecting power, press the power button to wake up the device.
- Turn off the display: After disconnecting power, any attached monitors will turn off, and the CPU will run at reduced speed. After reconnecting to power, the device and any attached monitors will reawaken automatically.
To set your preferred system mode, there are two methods:
1. Change Windows system settings: From the search bar, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Power Options > Choose what the power button does > Select the mode you want to enter when you press the sleep button from the drop-down menu (On battery and Plug in items) > Save changes.
2. Set it up using the Mind App.
After saving your preferred settings, once power is disconnected, Mind will automatically enter the mode that you had set. Sleep is the default mode. If you wish to disconnect power for a long time, it is recommended to set the device to sleep or hibernate to prevent data loss.
What can the Mind's power button do?
