----------------------- MS-DOS v6.22 Help: POWER.EXE -----------------------
<Examples>                                                           <Index>

                                 POWER.EXE
 
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.
 
Syntax
 
    DEVICE=[drive:][path]POWER.EXE [ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN]|STD|OFF] [/LOW]
 
Parameters
 
drive:path
    Specifies the location of the POWER.EXE file.
 
ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN]|STD|OFF
 
    ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN
        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.
 
    STD
        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 power
        management.
 
    OFF
        Turns off power management.
 
Switch
 
/LOW
    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.

                             POWER.EXE--Example
 
To specify that POWER.EXE is located in the DOS directory of drive C and
that the default setting be used, add the following command line to your
CONFIG.SYS file:
 
    device=c:\dos\power.exe
 
The POWER.EXE device driver will be loaded into the upper memory area, if it
is available.
