Reduces power consumption when applications and devices are idle. The power
manager device driver conforms to the Advanced Power Management (APM)
specification. This device driver must be loaded by a <DEVICE> command in
your CONFIG.SYS file.
DEVICE=[drive:][path]POWER.EXE [ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN]|STD|OFF] [/LOW]
Specifies the location of the POWER.EXE file.
Conserves power when applications and hardware devices are idle. In
some cases, performance may be affected if an application is active
instead of idle. Use MAX for maximum power conservation. Use REG,
the default setting, to balance power conservation with application
and device performance. Use MIN if the performance of an application
or device is not satisfactory when you specify MAX or REG.
If your computer supports the Advanced Power Management (APM)
specification, STD conserves power by using only the
power-management features of your computer's hardware. If your
computer does not support the APM specification, STD turns off
Turns off power management.
Loads the POWER.EXE device driver into conventional memory, even if the
upper memory area is available. By default, POWER.EXE is loaded into the
upper memory area if the upper memory area is available.
