Caring for your MacBook

Battery Life

  • In order to get the most out of your battery, first let the battery run until roughly 20% of its charge is remaining.  
  • Charge the battery to 100%
  • One fully charged, remove the charger.
  • Do not keep the charger plugged into the charger when fully charged. 
  • This will help the battery run through the cells and should then be able to operate for 7-8 hours at a time. 

Cleaning

  • For the keyboard, air canisters can be used to clean off dust.
  • Use screen wipes for the screen only, but wring them out thoroughly first.
  • Do not use window cleaner.

Trash

Make sure to empty your trash and clear your downloads periodically.

 

Documents

  • Store your documents in correct folders.
  • The documents section is where you should create more folders and utilize storage and organization.

Ejecting USB

  • Always correctly eject jump drives, cameras and other USB cords.
  • A quick way to eject is to drag the icon to the trash can.
  • When the icon is no longer visible, it is safe to remove the USB drive.
