ACQUITY Console, Automation

<p> I've recently seen, in the lower left status panel,  a black status indicator and the word "Automation".  It's situated imediately above the usual green status indicator. The help files and user guide refer to sample organizer information, but our system is not equipped.  I've found that it usually pops up when communication with one or more modules is not quite right.  There's a good chance that you wont successfully complete a sample set because one of the modules drops off line (comms).  What does this status indicator mean?  Thanks!</p><p></p><p>Eric</p>
