    Question Camera pops on during startup and shutdown and start button inconsistent

    Greetings, I'm a newbie and I think I will love (mostly) my T100! Can't find anything else close in value and features.

    I absolute LOVE this forum, it has been extremely helpful to me! Here's two questions I have:

    1) During startup and shutdown my camera indicator light pops on for an instant. Is this supposed to happen? I did update the bios to 220, which helped because before the camera would stay on much longer. But it still comes on for an instant (like it is taking a picture, maybe??).

    Call me paranoid, but I don't like the thought of someone out there somewhere taking a quick picture every time I start up or shut down. Yes, I know the NSA can take photos without activating the light (yikes!) but still... If it's normal I'll just cover the lens but if it's not normal I'd rather exchange the unit.

    2) I also have the issue of the start button having to be pressed and held down for a few seconds for the unit to come on, sometimes it works and sometimes I have to try a few times. Shouldn't the start button just work if you press it, without having to hold it down?

    Are these two things normal, do I need to change settings, or exchange for a new T100?

    Thank you!

    1 and 2 are normal from "shut down" powered off situation but... I'd suggest you use sleep mode rather than power off mode. With sleep mode, your restarts (and return from "sleep") will be almost instantaneous.

    Also I'm not 100% sure but the LED next to the camera coming on when powering up is not an indicator of the camera being enabled but rather an indicator that something in the PC is happening before you see an action indicator on the screen. Maybe? Or are they really watching all of us? LOL

    Apparently in another forum, someone has noticed that 250 photos where taken when on shut down o/night. The camera switched on and drained battery. This is an issue. Im new also.
