I am trying to be "Greener" and have set my Power Options to Turn off as follows. Monitor 10 Minutes HD 30 Minutes Standby 30 Minutes Hibernate 1 Hour (Enable Hibernation is ticked) Nothing happens at all, I did a search in the forum and it seems others have the same problem, but no solution click here I am on XP Pro SP2 all up to date. Any further ideas please
I couldn't find anything like "let op system handle power options" but I have changrd 2 settings which I thought may be similar. "Remote Wakeup" was OFF, now turned ON. "AC Power Recovery" was OFF, now is On. I do not really understand either setting so if you have further advice I am ready to listen. I will leave the computer alone now and see if it has made a difference.
Thanks for that, I have put all the settings back to how they were (ie OFF) I will check the motherboard drivers as the computer is over 4 years old and those drivers have never been updated.I am going out this evening so it will be tomorrow before I can check, I will report back.
I can't find anything in BIOS that would seem to be related regarding power I only have Auto Power On/ Disabled Remote Wake Up Off AC Power Recovery Off Fast Boot On Suspend Mode says S3 the only alternative is S1 and I have no idea what either of these mean. I have been unable to find driver updates. My machine is a Dell Dimension 4300 there is no other name other than Dell regarding the MB
