To Set Up Power Management Modes

When you plan to stop using your computer for a short period of time, you can
set your system to automatically enter a power management mode. Your
computer may have difficulty resuming from a power-saving mode, if the power
scheme is not set up correctly.

Setting up your system’s power management

Sony recommends following these steps for optimum power management:


Click Start in the Windows® taskbar and select Control Panel.


Select Performance and Maintenance. The Performance and Maintenance
window appears.


Click Power Options. The Power Options Properties window appears.


Click the Hibernate tab and verify that the Enable hibernation check box is
selected. Click Apply.


Click the Power Schemes tab. Select the Home/Office Desk power scheme.


In the section, “Settings for Home/Office Desk power scheme,” use the drop-
down list to set a time value for System stand by or System hibernates. Do
not set time values for both settings. Click Apply.


Click the Advanced tab. In the Power buttons section, “When I press the
power button on my computer,
” use the drop-down list and select Hibernate.
Click Apply.


Click OK.
