BIOS Settings - Power Management
This section contains the various settings that you can use to control your system's automatic power management settings. The pros and cons of using it are in this section on system care.
Note: In many ways,
automatic power management is still "not ready for prime time", at least in my
experience. Enabling power management can cause problems in your system because many
software programs aren't prepared to properly deal with having the processor power down or
the hard disks turn off, etc. You can certainly use power management, but be prepared to
disable some of the settings if you have problems with them. I strongly recommend
disabling all power management features when initially assembling a new system or
performing upgrades or new software installations. If you do not, you will have a hard
time figuring out what is causing any problems you might experience.
