Q: How do I customize the power settings on the Gateway M675 notebook?A: Power settings can be customized from the Microsoft® Windows® Control Panel by selecting power schemes, setting power alarms, adjusting advanced power settings, and enabling Hibernate mode.
Power schemes, or groups of power settings, let you change power saving options such as when the monitor or hard drive is automatically turned off. You can also select one of the defined power schemes or create a custom power scheme.
Note: The processor installed in your notebook may use Intel® SpeedStep technology to conserve battery power. A SpeedStep-equipped processor can change its operating speed according to the power source. Your notebook's default settings operate the processor at full speed while connected to AC power and at reduced speed (which uses less power) while using battery power. Power schemes also set the speed of an Intel SpeedStep-equipped processor in Windows XP.
Alarms can alert you when the battery charge is low.
Advanced power settings let you assign different power saving modes to the power button and STANDBY key. You can also select which power saving mode is activated when you close the LCD panel.
Hibernate mode, also called Save to disk, writes all current memory information to the hard drive, and then turns the computer completely off. The next time you turn on the computer, it reads memory information from the hard drive and opens the programs and documents that were open when you activated Hibernate mode.
