    I just noticed for the first time, whenever my x230t wakes up from sleep mode, in the center of the screen is a camera icon. I got this as a factory refurbished unit, and it has the stock windows 7, plus all windows/drivers updates. I haven't done anything with the webcam or any camera utilities, etc.

    I do have it set for fingerprint login, so I swipe my finger, and then as it is waking up, overlaid on the screen is the camera icon. It seems to be a hardware overlay (like when you hold the function key and hit one of the F keys), not part of the OS.

    Is this normal? Is it taking a snapshot of whoever is waking the computer (I have heard of this, but not ever used it)? How do I find those images, if so (I searched and cannot find any)?
