No Power Management tab in Wireless Properties

Q: No Power Management tab in Wireless Properties

Hi, I have the linksys WMP300N wireless card on Win7 32bit. Anyway in the linksys properties there is no power management tab.. I want to uncheck the box that let's windows power down the device. But without the tab I can't. I know it is probably a driver issue for the WMP300N doesn't have the best driver support for win 7 but it works. Anyway was wondering if anyone knew of another way I could access the power management other then wireless properties.. Maybe through the registry?

Any help would be great

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No Power Management tab in Wireless Properties

That means that the device driver doesnt have the feature implemented, nothing you can do.

You can try going into "power options" in the control panel and seeing if you have the option there, but thats the only other place i can think of.

Hey all some weird problems I just bought a new Alienware laptop Benchmarks like DMark were great and consistent with reviews for properties with hidden of power help management... Need the machine But I had to reinstall the OS Win Pro x and in doing so I experienced a noticeable slowdown in Need help with hidden properties of power management... the benchmarks Now I did the song and dance of drivers etc - using the drivers included from Dell on the enclosed DVD using the drivers from the Dell website themselves using drivers from the rd party manufacturers Nothing helped- benchmarks were consistently a slower by the same amount than when I got it clean from the factory After trying and trying and trying I found that one program from Alienware - the control center - did seem to make a difference when I installed it It didn't get me the full amount back but it did move the needle Control center basically includes several programs in it The main one that's relevant here is the one that manages power profiles I quickly realized it's just a wrapper around Windows's own power management options Anyway I dug and dug and dug deeper and deeper into power management Oddly on balanced mode I'd get a score of say But then on high performance mode the score would drop to this was consistent after many trials back and forth So I painstakingly went through every power option to find what the culprit was Turns out it was Minimum Processor State Changing that one variable in balanced mode changed the benchmark To test this out I then switched to high performance mode and literally changed every variable to the same value as in balanced including Min Proc State And yet still stuck at This was when it dawned on me that the visual GUI wrapper for power Need help with hidden properties of power management... management was not exposing all the settings despite me clicking on every quot Advanced quot button on there Enter powercfg exe This was the tool that finally exposed for me all the settings using -qh So now I have a bunch of processor power management variables I have to play with that are different between balanced and high performance But before I get into that I thought I would post on here and see if someone really knows power management knows why high performance would underperform balanced mode and hopefully how I can get back to the original original performance I used to get before reformatting Basically given the whole mix of variables drivers OS updates background processes Nvidia control panel etc power management seems far and away the most likely culprit and I'm dying to hear from those who really know how to manage it and for whom this might ring familiar Thanks

Okay, I know there's a problem with the devices going to sleep, and I know that people have a fix which works. The only problem is, my device doesn't have power management:
I really don't know what to do, but I'm definitely not going back to Vista, so will someone please help me?

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the driver installed successfully, and there aren't any updates for it.

A:Wireless Power Management

hello Copyright and welcome to the forums
if you see below where it says power state mapping which says which are supported..
from what i can see this should be supported....
like i said my tut here disables the adapter before the computer goes to sleep so it shouldnt matter whether its power state is enabled...
i cant tell completely if you dont have power management but if you look lower like i have here...

you can see that the S1 S3 states (i think you know what means) are translated into D1 D3 ect and are arranged like you see here in mine i dont have dcap wake from D(X) and my computer can come out sleep fine (used to happend on 7000 x64 but not anymore on 7048)

unless i can see the lower half i can be for certain
if you want you can give vista drivers if you have not tried them..

Hello All,

In the last two weeks I have been experiencing something very strange with my Windows 10 Pro. When my laptop resumes from sleep the Wireless is turned off in Windows. I don't believe it was an update because I have defer updates enabled. Unfortunately, I just noticed System Restore was turned off.

1) I have checked the power settings in Device Manager and the device is NOT checked to use power management)
2) I have updated to the latest wireless driver available.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: I believe this issue has something specifically to do with Sleep because when I reboot or shutdown/power-on the Wireless is enabled and working fine. It only seems to be when Windows goes into sleep mode.

A:Wireless turned off after lid closed or sleep (Not Power Management)

It is common behavior for any devices to be powered down if you close the lid to place into sleep mode.

I recently re-installed Windows 7. I have 2 internal drives and the drives properties seem incorrect in disk management.

The System drive's properties are listed as
Disk 1 (Boot, Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)

The data drive's properties are listed as
Disk 0 (System, Active, Primary Partition)

I believe the System drive should have System as one of it's properties

...and the data drive should not have System, Active as properties.

Should I change these properties and how can these properties be changed? Also the Disk number are reversed. Should the disk numbers be corrected also?

I stumbled upon this thread, but it's pretty old, so I thought I'd start a new one. In XP in Computer Management, you could right click on the computer and get a Properties option. This was especially useful if you were connecting to a remote computer. For example, you could edit the environment variables of a remote system. In Window 7, the Properties option is gone. (See attachments.) Is there any way to get it back, or else another way to remotely administer environment variables? Note: I know how to get to the Properties of the local system; that's not what I'm looking for. I want to be able to access the Properties of a remote system.

I change from Balanced to Power Saver and fps in benchmark went from 180fps to 50fps. Is there any hardware related changes due to swap from Balanced to Power Saver ?

A:Windows Power Management - Power Saver - is this safe for graphic card

Power Saver attempts to save power by reducing the CPU’s speed all the time and lowering screen brightness, among other similar settings and that may account for your fps drop when benchmarking. Doesn't sound like a good choice for your purposes.

It is most likely that your battery needs replacing. If it lasted 18 months, you should be thankful.

But you could try recalibrating by letting the battery run down until the machine shuts off and then charging it fully (as possible).

A:Power Management

Any number of things can prevent a computer from going into standby mode. Nearly any program running in the background can cause the problem. The only way to figure out which one is to start disabling things. Unfortunately, security software is a frequent culprit, and you don't want to disable that.

I have my computer set up to turn off the monitor, go to standby, etc after a set time. It used to be that when it went into standby and I moved the mouse some time later, the monitor would light up and the blue log in screen would appear and then I would click the appropriate user and go from there. Now, after I move the mouse and the monitor turns on, there is no log in screen, it takes me right to the desktop of the last user. How do I get it to function the way it used to with the log in screen when it turns back on from standby mode?

A:Power Management in XP

There are so many factors in Windows that can affect Standby Mode that it can be very frustrating trying to figure out what is going on. Standyby feature has always been a 'thorn' in Windows side so to speak. Some people can use it and never have problems, some can't use it at all and some just have lockups when it worked fine. My opinion?? Leave the standby feature off, have your monitor shut off after XX amount of minutes. Set the hardrive to shut down XX amount minutes later. That way, when you log off to the logon screen, the monitor will shut down as per your settings. I know this isn't a fix for something that worked for you before. Did you install or make any changes to software/hardware before this happend? Anything different in your settings before? The only other thing in your case is maybe some software program activates and logs back on to the last person's profile.

I'm running Windows XP Home. I know how to get to my POWER OPTIONS PROPERTIES WINDOW. I know how to adjust my Monitor settings to shut my monitor down, however how do I get my computer to Sleep? What is the difference between SYSTEM STANDBY and SYSTEM HIBERNATES options? Which function should I use if I want my computer to basically shut down if I'm not using it after a certain peroid time? Also under Power Schemes options I have it set for "always on". Where should be set? Thanks

A:Power Management

To get your computer to sleep go to the advanced tab on the power options. There you can set different reactions for your actions like sleep when I push the power button. My understanding of standby is that during stand by the computer essentially shuts down with the exception of the memory. This way the data for the current system state are still stored there allowing quicker restart while the battery, if it is a laptop, lasts or the power is plugged in. Hibernation is similar except the data from the memory is stored in a temporary file on the hard drive and the computer shuts down completely. When it restarts it reloads the data from the drive to the memory and restarts much the same as sleep mode from there. Problems with both of these modes is that changes to things such as the last good configuration, registry or profile are not completely saved which can cause certain issues if these are used all of the time. As far as the settings for your power scheme the right one is the one that makes the computer do what you want it to do. Other than that it doesn't matter. For myself unless it is a laptop I have it set to always on and turn all of the items underneath to never so I don't have to wait for anything.

I have always set all the power saving options to Always On and leave the screen saver off. When I am leaving the PC for more than a few minutes, I turn the monitor off. If there's an open project I'm working on, it's always there when I return. Using the Standby mode and other handy features, raises the possibility that you will loose it when the darn thing doesn't "wake up" when you want it to. It only takes a few seconds for the monitor to come up and you know you have it just like you left it.

A:Power management

Many times Power Management options as originally designed do not work well. If the system was designed specifically to be compatable with power management all will go well until something changes. In your case it could be addition of a video card or updated drivers. Or incompatable drivers to start with. The only suggestion I would have is go to your Video cards manufacturers website and see if newer drivers are available. If you have on Motherboard video then to the Motherboard manufacturer you must go.

If you could upload a copy of the BSOD details, it would help diagnose the problem To do so, go to and select the Choose File box (down the page a bit) and browse to the C:\Windows\Minidump\  folder and select one of the recent .dmp files, and then select the Upload Dump button.    After a short period of time, it will dispaly the details of the BSOD, which you can then select, copy and paste into your next post here.     Hopefully the BSOD details will point to the culprit. Cheers,

I've recently been getting annoyed by the noise my PC makes, specifically the 2 HDDs. It's the high pitch whirring noise of the 7200rpm spindle spinning constantly. It's very noticable when my room has gone completly quiet.

I see the power options to shut off hdds after 10mins, i could hear the difference straight away, the whirring noise has near enough gone.

Is there anything wrong with doing this as my second 'storage' drive only warms up when i need to access it rarely say when just using Word and hdds have gone to sleep in background until i save or something.

remember they goto sleep after x minutes of idle time so if i'm surfing and C: drive is occasional in use with the IE cache, it stays alive.

it makes more immediate difference then anything else i've tried b4.

A:Power Management and HDDs

You really shouldn't spin down a HD if you're going to start it again more than 3-4 times a day.

I don't know if there is a way to spin down only one HD. There were such utilities for DOS, but I haven't seen such a thing for newer OS.

Have you tried a thick sock around the HD?

This problem was far more prevalent in XP than it is in Vista and Windows 7, but still occurs. Make sure you have the latest correct network driver. If it is an integrated adapter get the driver from the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site.

Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure.

If the problem still occurs you could try a different adapter or router. The workaround I use (less trouble than a reboot) when I run into this is to disconnect before Sleeping, and then reconnect after awakening.

Hey, I'm sorry if I don't use proper terms, but I'm using a Dutch Windows XP Home version, so I'm just trying to translate the names.
My problem is I can't get the Power Management back to work. I was playing a bit with the names, but accidentally entered a name for a new scheme which was already in use, and now my Power Management doesn't work no more. I can't select Schemes no more, they're all gone, nor can I enter values to shutdown my monitor etc. The fields are all plain grey..
Btw I'm using a laptop, don't know if it makes any difference. I also tried several solutions regarding the registry, but none of them worked.
Can anyone help me?

Does anyone know of a quick way to change between power management schemes? For a desktop setup - I'm thinking of a utility that sits in the taskbar that allows you to quickly change schemes.

A:Power Management Utility?

Here I simply right clicked on the power options item once going into the Start>Control Panel there to make a copy for a custom toolbar. The shortcut can be renamed and dragged right onto the taskbar itself in order to save steps.

For themes those are actually custom plans created in the power options section itself. You can create any number there and have ready access with the shortcut pinned. No 3rd party utility needed.

Hi there. Since I bought my new mouse and illuminated keyboard, when I use the PC a lot, they have spontaneously been stoping for a period of time and then they work fine. I didn't have this problem before because I had a ps2 keyboard. Now I have USB mouse and keyboard and this happens. I do believe there is a problem with the power management.

A:power management on laptop

Under the Advanced tab of Power Options do you have Hibernation enabled? Standby or Hibernation would be the other options for "lid closed", NOT shutdown. Likewise, those are the options for 'inactivity'. Shutdn is a manual operation...push the button.

I don't believe that this is a "driver" issue at all.

A:Power management bios

I haven't seen the option to power on a machine at a certain time on any sort of modern machine.  Is it really that slow to boot that you need it to turn on automatically?  If so you should probably address that issue.  Also, a machine that new will use next to no power when it's in standby so that may also be an option if you need to get it up and running quickly.,156220.0.html

My Power Management used to work. I have it set to turn off monitor after 1 hour and hard disks after 2 hours. It never shuts down. I tried checking the standby box and it doesn't work either. I tried checking hibernate and THAT seemed to work, but it had to completely restart.

I only want it to turn off monitor and hard disks. Why does this no longer work?

It used to work just fine! Please help!!!!

A:XP Power Management Does not Work!

The power management features don't always work right - as you've found out.

Set the power scheme to "Always On", set everything else to "Never", set the power button command to "Shut down", set the sleep button command to "Do nothing", and turn off hibernation. Then get in the habit of turning off your computer when you're done. There's no need to turn off the monitor because it'll go to sleep when you turn off your computer, and then it'll wake up when you turn your computer back on. It's good to restart your computer once a day anyway.

Hello guys,

I quite frequently leave my PC on when i go to bed, to let it finish a task, and i want it to shutdown when the task is complete...

I im in the power saving mode, and i can set times for:

Monitor off
Standby mode
Hard disks off

For one, what does shutting the HD off do if the PC is still running?

My big question, are the times that i set for standby after i don't touch the computer, or after the computer is finished its tasks...


A:Question about Power management...

im sure leaving it on all the time will hurt it in some way shape/form. but i do the same thing. but i do set it so the monitor/screen does turn off. cause images will get burned into the screen. and u would set the standby for after task complete.
also depending on what you're running u can go into the bios and actually set a shutdown standard time and even a turn on standard time.

Greetings friends.
We still do have 30 Windows XP Computers in our Network which are not in domain. Yes we're migrating slowly towards windows 7.
Recently we have standardized our computer settings to be 10 minutes of inactivity to turn off screen and 20 minutes of inactivity to sleep. It was really tedious to go to each and every computer change the settings manually.
So i made a batch file to implement the standard settings created in one of the xp machines
"powercfg /export powerStd /file filename.
Now to invoke that batch file a NORMAL account allow in xp to change the powercfg.
When i do runas /u:administrator "powerStd.bat, The power settings are created instead for the administrator user.
I hope i clearly mentioned my problem.
Many Thanks

I have to close the pc entirely to connect to mains power again. But if I start on mains power connected and disconnect to use the internal battery no problem, until I try to reconnect to mains power again. WHY?

As an update to this:

I ran powercrfg -events and powercfg -requests last night to try to determine where the hang up was, and apparently something is using my audio driver, preventing it from going to sleep properly.

I can put it to sleep via the start menu with no problems, it just won't do it automatically for some reason.

My next step is going to be to either find an updated driver that hopefully won't do this, or simply uninstall the driver and let Windows use its own driver. I've searched the net, and this seems to be a common issue with the SigmaTel HDAudio drivers.

Now that I've built my new system, my "standby" functions do not work as before. I'm pretty sure it is something i can set up, or does anyone know if the GA-7DX cannot do this?

When I press "standby" the drives do shut down, but the fans are all operating. How can I make the fans sleep as well?

Also, once my ssytem is in "sleep" the kbd or mouse will not wake it. Nothing wakes it. I have to press the power button and then it looks like it retarts! How do I make the keyboard & mouse come out of sleep?

Is that the same thing as Suspend To RAM? I dont have Suspend To RAM enabled - I'd have to set a jumper for that. I thought that sleep and suspend to RAM were different.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L -A- with an integrated Li-ion battery The removal of this Toshiba battery is quite complicated it is necessary to open the case unscrewing screws and remove the dvd unit The battery itself is fixed to the motherboard with screws and a pin connector See this instructive youtube video My main concern is that I need to use my notebook daily for L50-A-161 management power Satellite a prolonged period of time many hours a day often from morning to night and I rarely need the battery as a source of power working in places where Satellite L50-A-161 power management the AC power is always available To some extent I would mainly need and use the battery as an AC filter Many in fact suggest not to remove it so to avoid to expose motherboard and hard disk to power surges and also not everybody can afford a UPS for every place he is supposed to move to With this in mind I am wondering what practice suits me best keep the laptop connected to the AC grid and calibrate the battery once a month with occasional partial discharges charges would be safe Battery University writes that Most users do not remove the AC power and this practice is safe but of course this goes against the Partial charge better than a full charge guidance rule keeping the laptop connected to the AC grid would keep the battery always at charge Besides Battery University points out that quot charging stops when the Li-ion battery is full quot and that it is not necessary to remove the battery when it is full because the charger turns off does this also apply only when the machine is turned off or also when I am using it To sum up in my case the battery is useful in Satellite L50-A-161 power management case of AC power blackout and against power surges With the necessity of working all day I cannot rely only on the battery it lasts just about hour and a half What would you suggest me to do Is it safe for the battery to keep the laptop always connected to the AC grid

My laptop's LAN card is bad so I got a dongle, the problem is that when I plug the dongle in the USB port Power Management activates (checks) "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". This means that the dongle gets turned off causing a fault if not active for a period of time if I forget to change the setting. Is there a way to completely disable the setting?

System Update tells me that I have to install a essential power management driver on my T460s. After installing the driver I run system update again and the message is the same: I've to install the power management driver. It's clear that the driver is nog installed. Does anybody has the same porblem and knows the solution?

In trying to modify my Power Management Scheme in the Display Properties menus on my trusty old XP SP3 system, I couldn't get changes to stick or a newly-named scheme to get added to the dropdown list.

However, I did manage to delete the default Desktop scheme itself and now I have NO power management scheme at all!

How do I restore my power management capability and get it to accept modifications in timing to shut down the display?

By the way, the system does seem to shut down the display after some inactivity but I can't see the timing any more.

A:Lost Power Management Scheme

I find a boatload of possible fixes/workarounds depending on circumstance.

Many report this issue after installing Service Pack 3.

Things to try:
>Disable Hibernation
>Set power management settings in Safe Mode, then reboot.
>Update Video Drivers--especially among those using OEM versions of ATI and nVidia cards like Dell users. Same with Intel onboard graphics drivers
>Disable Java's QuickStarter program--add on and in msconfig.

Others who use Uninterruptible Power Supplies report conflicts between that UPS driver and Windows power management.

Recently my laptop has developed a wierd problem out of nowhere. I think its a problem with the power management profiles or something. I can boot my laptop with the power cord plugged in and its fine. I can then pull out the power cord and its still fine. It switches back to battery power quick and easily. Heres the problem: When I plug the power cord back in now the screen goes black and instead of popping back up on "plugged-in" power, the screen just stays black and I have to restart it. This has never happened before and I'm not sure why it is doing this out of the blue. Thanks for any help.

Hello MBlackburn, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might run a sfc /scannow command to see if it can find and fix any bad system files that may be causing this.

System Files - SFC Command

If this does not help, then you try a System Restore using a restore point dated before you had this problem.
