Hello, just bought x61s (type 7669) and want to know whether (and how) I can set fingerprint login for power-on password.
On Lenovo web I found only "BIOS password (also known as power-on password) replacement is currently available on select ThinkPad notebook systems" which is not really helpful for me
Solved! Go to Solution.

This solution works, but...
After I scanned my fingerprint at boot, I still have to enter my power-on password.
I was hoping to enter the power-on password by swiping the fingerprint reader.
After a power-down, the power-on password is also handled by the fingerprint reader. It even logs on automatically to Vista ! Great !
Thanks for the solution !

Maybe you still have to enable fingerprint reading within BIOS?
BIOS -> Security -> Predesktop Authentication -> [ENTER] -> Enabled
 You're welcome! [/edit]
