Power Management (300-700 Series)

  Power Management 300-700 Series

Power Management

Power management reduces the power consumption of certain components of the computer such as the system power supply, processor, hard disk drives, and some monitors (if monitor supports DPMS). Advanced Power Management and Rapid Resume Manager are features of some personal computers.

Advanced Power Management

Energy-saving settings can be viewed and changed by using the Advanced Power Management menu in the Configuration/Setup Utility program.

  If a device, such a monitor, does not have power-management capabilities,
it can be damaged when exposed to a reduced-power state
Before making energy-saving selections for the monitor, check the documentation supplied with the monitor to see if it supports Display Power Management Signaling (DPSM).

Automatic Hardware Power Management Features:

There are three levels of specified time that the computer must be inactive before the power management options that are selected take effect. Select the amount of time that is offered within each level.

At each level, you can define the amount of energy savings by specifying values for the following options:
