I’d like to know what other users of the NC10 set their power options on. I keep changing mine because I don’t know what is the best way to set it. Right now I have the battery settings to have my monitor turn off after 5 minutes, turn off hard disk after 20 minutes, standby 30 minutes and hibernate in 45 minutes. For AC power I have the monitor off in 15 minutes, turn off hard disk 30 minutes, standby never and hibernate in one hour.
Do these seem efficient settings? I am really confused about the best way to optimize the power for my Sammie when I want to use it all day long.
Again, thanks everyone. I don’t know where I’d be without this forum’s help!! 😮December 28, 2008 at 11:18 pm #177717AlfiharParticipant
On mine I currently have it set so that on battery it turns the display off after 5 minutes and sleeps after 15 minutes. When the battery is critically low it will hibernate.
On AC power I have it set to turn the display off after 20 minutes and sleep after 30 minutes.
Hard drive wise I have mine set to standby after 1 minute, though this may be dangerous and cause extra wear on the drive. Additionally I don’t use a screensaver at all.
As with choosing whether to use sleep, hibernate or shut down. It’s best to choose a setting which is best for you e.g. make sure it doesn’t turn off the screen too quickly so you are constantly waking it up.December 28, 2008 at 11:46 pm #177719PanManMember
Unless I know I’m not going to have access to a mains power point for an extended period I leave Sammy on Vistas High Performace setting(detailed below if anyones interested), still looking at 5hrs plus ordinary usage (well ordinary for me) and suits the way me & Sammy work 🙂

connecting the phone (se c702) up in phone rather than mass storage mode kills the battery life as it also charges the phone ;o)December 29, 2008 at 12:11 am #177718Sweet-PMember

How do you assign it to go into hibernate when the battery is low?? That would be great if I could do that!!
