Many newer computers support power schemes, which allow you to turn off your monitor and hard disk, and put your computer on standby. For laptops, power schemes allow you to select different settings for when you’re plugged in and when you’re running on batteries. To set power schemes:
- From the Start menu, point to Settings and click Control Panel.
- Open Power Management.
- Click the Power Schemes tab.
- Select a power scheme and make adjustments to the preset options.
- Click Apply and then OK.
