If anyone is not up by 6am wake them up. They are wasting the whole day away.

Almost all of the adults I know get up by 6am anyway.




You need a better class of friends. I like to be well-rested for Happy Hour. I'm rarely out of bed before the crack of noon.

I am in bed before 9pm 90% of the time. And most of my friends are drinking around 5pm on weekdays and 10am on weekends. Us drunks go to bed early. I think I have been up past midnight once in the last 10 years.

Sometimes I don't even go to bed till 6am. I don't think I have had the same schedule for more than a week or so in many years. I cant remember the last time I slept for for than 6 hours at a time.

requesting tech help

would like to know what the 3 buttons on the left bottom and 4 buttons on the right bottom of my 6 year old Lenovo flat screen desktop do - what is their function?
curiosity has gotten the better of me
could not find out from googling
did not want to mess with them because I've done that on other computers and it was hard to get back to the default

thanks guys:


left bottom:





right bottom:

My guesses are....

On the right: The button with the arrow is called something like a DDC or CCD, it helps make it easy to connect, control, communicate with and use your monitor/display(or its just and input button). Perhaps the one with the slash a on/off button or perhaps the input button, not sure (I would defiantly touch it) The arrows are probably for scrolling though menu options (I assume for the monitor)

Are you sure "the buttons on the left are actually buttons? the one on the far left should blink off and on when your computer is using the hard drive. The one n the middle is for Wi Fi

Many manufacturers make user manuals available for different models online. Maybe here:

yeah, thanks Axel and rx
you're right - on the left its not buttons just indicators
I don't think I need anything on the right - was just curious

The buttons on the right look like they could be menu navigation buttons, possibly to adjust the display (color, brightness, etc.).

My guesses, left-to-right, are:
Enter Menu
Scroll Left/Adjust Lower
Scroll Right/Adjust Higher
Exit Menu
"Dealer has 'rock'... Pay 'paper!'"

Left bottom are status lights not buttons.

First light is disk activity, second is WiFi, not exactly sure what the third is. If there are buttons there its probably to turn WiFi off.

The first button on the right is to switch the input source on the monitor. The other two are to navigate the monitor settings menu.

Anyone think those paid robocall blocker services are also the same company that makes robocalls?
