PostSubject: Use Hibernate and Standby to Conserve   Sun Aug 26, 2007 5:39 am

The Hibernate function in Windows XP Professional can make the batteries in your laptop computer last longer.





Windows XP supports the industry standard power management technology
known as the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI), which
enables the operating system to control power to your computer and
peripheral devices. The power management features in Windows XP include
Hibernate and Standby. Hibernate saves an image of your desktop with
all open files and documents, and then it powers down your computer.
When you turn on power, your files and documents are open on your
desktop exactly as you left them. Standby reduces the power consumption
of your computer by cutting power to hardware components you are not
using. Standby can cut power to peripheral devices, your monitor, even
your hard drive, but maintains power to your computers memory so you
dont lose your work.




Power Management Performance





Windows XP wakes from Hibernate faster than any earlier version of
Windows. So you can preserve your batteries without taking time to
close all your files and shut down, and then restart and open all your
files when youre ready to work again. If you need to leave your
computer, you can just leave it. Windows XP can automatically put your
computer into Hibernate mode after a specified period of inactivity. Or
Windows XP can detect when your batteries are running low, and then
automatically put your computer in Hibernate mode to save your work
before the battery fails. To put your computer into hibernation, you
must have a computer that is set up by the manufacturer to support this
option.




To automatically put your computer into hibernation





You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.





1. Open Power Options in Control Panel. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.)





2. Click the Hibernate tab, select the Enable hibernate support check box, and then click Apply.





If the Hibernate tab is unavailable, your computer does not support this feature.





Click the APM tab, click Enable Advanced Power Management support, and then click Apply.





The APM tab is unavailable on ACPI compliant computers. ACPI
automatically enables Advanced Power Management, which disables the APM
tab.




4. Click the Power Schemes tab, and then select a time period in System
hibernates. Your computer hibernates after it has been idle for the
specified amount of time.

To manually put your computer into hibernation





You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of either the
Administrators or Power Users group in order to complete this
procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy
settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.




1. Open Power Options in Control Panel. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Power Options.)





2. Click the Hibernate tab, and then select the Enable hibernate support check box.





If the Hibernate tab is not available, your computer does not support this feature.


3. Click OK to close the Power Options dialog box.





4. Click Start, and then click Shut Down. In the What do you want the computer to do drop-down list, click Hibernate.


If you are using Windows XP Home Edition, or Windows XP Professional
with Fast User Switching turned on, the Shut Down menu will present the
options to Stand By, Turn Off, or Restart your computer. Hold down the
Shift key, and the Stand By button will change to Hibernate.
