Chapter 25. Special Features for Noteboo... > Understanding Power Management

Understanding Power Management

New portable and desktop PCs feature power management capabilities that let you specify schemes for conserving power (and battery life) by shutting down devices (such as hard disks, CD-ROMs, parallel and serial ports, and so on) after a specified time of inactivity. Windows 98 takes advantage of these new hardware designs and offers a software control for power management schemes under the Power Management object of the Control Panel.

Tip

To use the Windows 98 power management features, your PC must support power management through its BIOS. Read your PC's documentation to find out whether the machine supports power management and to determine how to enable the capability in the BIOS.
