To choose a power scheme


Open Power Options in Control Panel.


Under Power Schemes, select the power scheme you want. The power settings you see will change depending on the power scheme you choose.


To open Power Options, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click Power Options

Preset time settings appear in the Turn off monitor and Turn off hard disks lists on the Power Schemes tab. You can change these settings by clicking the arrow and then clicking the time you want.

You can create a new power scheme by clicking the time settings you want, clicking Save As, and typing a name.

Using Power Options in Control Panel, you can adjust any power management option that your computer's unique hardware configuration supports. Because these options may vary widely from computer to computer, the options described may differ from what you see. Power Options automatically detects what is available on your computer and shows you only the options that you can control.
