<Notes>                                                              <Index>

                                   POWER
 
Turns power management on and off, reports the status of power management,
and sets levels of power conservation.
 
Syntax
 
    POWER [ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN]|STD|OFF]
 
To display the current power setting, use the following syntax:
 
    POWER
 
Parameters
 
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.
