When computer starts up or resumes from hibernation or standby mode, ODD application will check if there is a disc in optical driver. If there is, the computer will prompt users to turn off the power of optical driver for longer battery life.

    * If there is a disc in optical driver when starting up or resuming, no prompt will appear.
    * Users can power on the optical driver from ODD mode by pressing software eject button in multimedia control buttons.
    * Users can modify some settings of ODD mode in VAIO power management.
