4. BIOS SETUP
4.5 Power Menu
The Power menu allows you to reduce power consumption. This feature turns off the
video display and shuts down the hard disk after a period of inactivity.
Power Management [User Define]
This option must be enabled to use any of the automatic power saving features. If
this menu item is set to [Disabled], power management features will not function
regardless of other field settings on this menu. The [User Define] option allows you
to make your own selections in the Power menu. When set to [Max Saving], system
power will be conserved to its greatest amount. The Suspend Mode field will then
be set to predefined value that ensures maximum power savings.
This field acts as the master control for the power management modes. [Max Sav-
ing] puts the system into power saving mode after a brief period of system inactiv-
ity; [Min Saving] is almost the same as [Max Saving] except that the system inactiv-
ity period is longer; [Disabled] disables the power saving features; [User Define]
allows you to set power saving options according to your preference. Configuration
options: [User Define] [Disabled] [Min Saving] [Max Saving]
IMPORTANT: Advanced Power Management (APM) should be installed to keep
the system time updated when the computer enters suspend mode activated by
the BIOS Power Management. For DOS environments, you need to add the
statement, DEVICE=C:\DOS\POWER.EXE, to your CONFIG.SYS file. For
Windows 3.x and Windows 95, you need to install Windows with the APM
feature. For Windows 98 and later, APM is automatically installed. A battery
and power cord icon labeled Power Management will appear in the Control
Panel. Choose Advanced in the Power Management Properties dialog box.
