Power management

This computer has a built-in power management unit that monitors 
system activity. System activity refers to any activity involving one or 
more of the following devices: keyboard, mouse, floppy drive, hard 
disk, peripherals connected to the serial and video memory. If no 
activity is detected for a period of time (called an inactivity timeout), 
the computer stops some or all of these devices in order to conserve 
energy.

This computer employs a power management scheme that supports 
ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface), which allows for 
maximum power conservation and maximum performance at the same 
time. Windows handles all power-saving chores for your computer.
