preboot fingerprinter without power on

2018-02-07, 8:46 AM

I used to have a W530.  I had sinced upgrade to P50.  On my old 530, I used to be able to swipe my finger on the reader w/o pushing the power on button to start the booting.  On my P50, I don't see this function.  I did check all my bios settings and I don't see any settings that can change that.  Is the P50 not able to do that?  TIA

Thanks a lot!  It is a bummer but not a deal breaker.
