When laptops are returned:

  1. Check in the laptop in LibCal.
  2. Return the laptop to it's numbered space in the laptop carts.
  3. Plug the laptop into the charger (should be in the back of the slot, if not, turn the cart around to open the rear doors and find the appropriate charger). 
  4. Write the time returned on a red dry erase magnet. Laptops need to have been returned more than 2 hours ago to be fully charged and ready to check out again.
