Question about Computers & Internet
Set it up so when it's on AC power, nothing is shutdown. On battery, I set mine to shut down after 30 minutes of inactivity.
I never let power mgmt turn off the hard drive in either mode. It doesn't save much when on battery, and usually causes problems with certain programs.
Internet access wouldn't be affected by these settings.
Another power setting that should not be on, is found under
Control Panel/System/Device Manager/Network Cards.
Right click on the network cards, go to Properties/Power Management.
Clear the boxes that allow the computer to turn off the card. Another setting that's more trouble than it's worth.
