- a method for logging in to a terminal based on fingerprint identification in a standby state (0002), comprising the following steps: - a fingerprint scanning and identification step (0019-0020), figures 1 and 2, 'The fingerprint sensor 266 senses the fingerprint of the fingertip, and authenticates the fingerprint."): in the standby state, scanning and identifying fingerprint information input by a user;
- an awaking step (0019-0020）, figures 1 and 2, "When the authentication result is affirmative, the fingerprint sensor 266 generates the laptop power-up command."): if the fingerprint information is successfully identified, awaking a control chip, and sending acknowledgement information indicative of successful fingerprint identification to the control chip; and
- an unlocking step, figures 1 and 2, "The electronic lock 242 is unlocked, and the laptop computer 20 is powered up according to the laptop power-up command."): upon receiving the acknowledgement information indicative of successful fingerprint identification, unlocking, by the control chip, the terminal, such that the user successfully logs in to the terminal.
D1 therefore discloses all features of claim 1, the subject-matter of which is therefore not new Article 54(1) and (2) EPC.
The same reasoning applies, mutatis mutandis, to corresponding independent claims 6, 7 and 14, which, as discussed in Sl above claim identical matter. The subject matter of said claims is therefore also not new Article 54(1) and (2) EPC. Dependent claims 2-5, 8-13 and 15 do not appear to contain any additional
