Disable power-saving modes

If you have trouble with power conservation, you can work around it by disabling the “standby” mode. Tuesday, April 10, 2001 Disable power-saving modes If you have trouble with power conservation, you can work around it by disabling the “standby” mode.

Modern PCs are designed to use versatile power management modes to save valuable energy while the system is idle. Unfortunately, not all combinations of hardware, BIOS, and operating systems work together to handle power management properly, and this can cause crashes when the system tries to return (recover) from a power-saving mode. If you have trouble with power conservation, you can work around it by disabling the “standby” mode. Click Start, Settings, and Control Panel. Double-click the Power Management icon. In the “Settings for Home/Office Desk power scheme” entry, select Never from the drop-down menu, click Apply, then click OK to save your changes. Now the system will not go into “standby” mode, so it shouldn’t crash.
