PC Power Settings

I need my PC's power to remain on from Sunday evening to Friday evening (my time is AEST). Where do I find my power settings to do this, and what do I need to select. Also, does a PC use a lot of power being left on all this time? Thank you

If you are using Vista, please do this: Start-Control Panel-Classic View-Power Options-Select Power Saver. If you want it to be just on but is okay to go to sleep mode or to Hibernate, you can select click on Change Plan Settings and make the necessary changes there as well as in Change Advance Power Settings (such as hibernate). Hope this helps. Thank you.

What causes PC to shut down during idle?


This might be down to the power settings, by default the hard drive is set to shut down after 15 mins of inactivity, to check open control panel and select Power Options, this will show you the current plan settings, click the Change plan settings and then Change Advanced power settings, expand the Hard disk option and then Turn off hard disk after, this will show the time this can be set to 0 which will stop it shutting down.
You can also adjust display settings etc. in this area at the same time.

My pc times out and quits downloading, would like to let it run all night if needed.


A couple things to check.

1. Check your network adapter under Network and Sharing Center then on to Change Adapter Settings. Right click on the adapter in question and select properties and click Configure. Go to the Power Management tab and make sure the Allow the computer to turn this device off to save power is not selected.

2. You might also want to turn auto tuning off for Windows TCP settings as well.

Start a DOS command prompt as administrator and type this

netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled

and

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Reboot your computer.

Computer wont stop timing out


Whether you use your computer for home or for work, it is important that it be available when you need it. If your computer keeps timing out, it will take precious time to bring it back to life so you can use it. Fortunately there are some simple changes computer owners can make to keep their computers from timing out and going into sleep mode.

Log on to your computer and click on the "Start" button. Choose "Control Panel" from the menu. Double-click on the "Power" icon in your computer's control panel. Look at the power settings for each option. Adjust the power options so that the computer's hard drive, monitor and system resources do not turn off. Many computers are set to time out after a period of inactivity, but it can be time consuming to wake them from their hibernation. By changing the power options you can prevent your PC from timing out and make sure it will be there when you need it. Hope this helps.

Clock on pc keeps going wrong


Hello,
Your computer system has a RTC (Real Time Clock) Battery that usually stores the correct time and other settings of the motherboard when you power down. If this battery is dead or faulty, it will reset Get it replaced and set your time once and it should remain correct as long as the battery is good.

Thanks,
Lolita

My xbox live doesnt work


the reason for this part to fail differs along with the difference of the type of connection you are using to connect your Xbox 360 console as follows:

a. Direct connection to modem:

1. Make sure first no other devices connected to the modem at the same time as some modems has an Ethernet port along with a USB port so, you might think you can use both at the same time & connect the PC through USB with the console through Ethernet & that's incorrect so, we need to disconnect the PC first.
2. Turn the modem off then turn it back on after couple of seconds (by turning the modem off I mean to unplug it from the wall outlet even if you have a power button for it), then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Restore to Factory Defaults" and when it ask you to Apply Settings select "Test Xbox Live". 3. If it's still not working we need to get the Physical Address of your PC to put it on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console as some cable companies are preventing any unknown MAC Addresses from connecting, to get the Physical Address of you PC connect the PC only to the modem then follow these steps here, the physical address will look like this 00-E0-98-C1-88-C2.
4. Go on the dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Edit Settings” then “Additional Settings” tab then select “Advanced settings” & put the Physical Address of your PC without the dashes on the “Alternate MAC Address” part and select "Done", when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.

b. Wired connection to router:

1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
2. Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
c. Wireless connection to router:
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore To Factory Defaults", when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live"
2. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to the "system" area then "Network Settings" then "Edit Settings" then select your wireless settings part down there "Wireless Mode, Network Name,..." the console will automatically then search for your wireless network and when it find it and you select it, it will ask you to enter your wireless key which is called WEP or WPA key - you can find it written on your wireless router or then you need to contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to get it from them - when it ask you to apply settings select "Test Xbox Live".
3. Just a kind of higher security that some router may use than the WEP & WPA key, you have also to accept the Xbox 360 connection to your wireless network on the router settings, you have to access to your router settings as mentioned before to check on the wireless security part whether your router apply a MAC filtering option, which is an option that blocks any unknown MAC address (the ID of any device) from accessing to your wireless network, and if it applies that kind of security you’ll find your Xbox 360 MAC address on the list there so, allow the Xbox 360 to get connected to the network, or even you can just turn off the MAC access control option instead of that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can put the Xbox 360 console - as a trial - in a closer position to the router to see wither it's going to pick up an IP address or not.
5. If even after you turn off the MAC filtering option on your router settings your Xbox 360 can't still get connected to Xbox Live you need then to update your router firmware (The router software) and if you don't know how to do so then call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to assist you with that, then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
d. ICS (Internet Connection Sharing):
1. Go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then “Restore to Factory Default" when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
2. Allow the ICS option on the PC as mentioned before, then test Xbox Live.
3. If it's still not working, set the IP Settings manually to be:
IP Address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Then go on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console to “System” area then “Network Settings” then "Test Xbox Live Connection".
4. If it's still not working, you can get the IP address of your connection from the PC as mentioned before then set your IP manually on the Dashboard of your Xbox 360 console using this IP address, when it asks you to Apply Settings choose “Test Xbox Live”.
If you faced any other kind of troubles with this part failing even after you tried these steps please check me man
