Solution for Powersettings


 Share

Recommended Posts

I found a sollution to change your Power Settings for Windows XP.

Use the tool Powercfg.exe. You can find it in: C:\windows\system32

Use Powercfg /? for all options you can use.

I created a batch file to put the power settings off.

Powersettings.cmd

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /monitor-timeout-dc 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /monitor-timeout-ac 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /disk-timeout-dc 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /disk-timeout-ac 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /standby-timeout-dc 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /standby-timeout-ac 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /hibernate-timeout-dc 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /hibernate-timeout-ac 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /processor-timeout-dc 0

POWERCFG /CHANGE "Home/Office Desk" /processor-timeout-ac 0

Options:

POWERCFG [/list | /QUERY [name] | /CREATE name | /DELETE name |

/SETACTIVE name | /CHANGE name settings |

/HIBERNATE {ON|OFF} | /EXPORT name [/FILE filename] |

/IMPORT name [/FILE filename] | /GLOBALPOWERFLAG {ON|OFF} /OPTION flag |

/BATTERYALARM {LOW|CRITICAL} [settings] |

/DEVICEQUERY queryflags | /DEVICEENABLEWAKE devicename |

/DEVICEDISABLEWAKE devicename | /?]

Description:

This command line tool enables an administrator to control

the power settings on a system.

Parameter List:

/LIST, /L Lists the names of existing power schemes.

/QUERY, /Q Displays the configuration of the specified power scheme.

If no name is specified, the configuration of the currently

active power scheme is displayed.

/CREATE, /C Creates a power scheme with the specified name. The new

scheme is created with the properties of the currently

active scheme.

/DELETE, /D Deletes the power scheme with the specified name.

/SETACTIVE, /S Makes the power scheme with the specified name active.

/CHANGE, /X Changes settings of the specified power scheme. Additional

switches specify the changes as follows:

/monitor-timeout-ac <minutes>

/monitor-timeout-dc <minutes>

/disk-timeout-ac <minutes>

/disk-timeout-dc <minutes>

/standby-timeout-ac <minutes>

/standby-timeout-dc <minutes>

/hibernate-timeout-ac <minutes>

/hibernate-timeout-dc <minutes>

/processor-throttle-ac <throttle>

/processor-throttle-dc <throttle>

AC settings are used when the system is on AC power.

DC settings are used when the system is on battery power.

Setting a timeout to zero will disable the corresponding

timeout feature. Supported throttle settings are NONE

CONSTANT, DEGRADE, and ADAPTIVE.

/EXPORT, /E Exports the power scheme with the specified name to a

file. If no filename is specified, the default is

SCHEME.POW. This additional parameter is supported:

/FILE <filename>

/IMPORT, /I Imports the power scheme from a file under the specified

name. If no filename is specified, the default is

SCHEME.POW. If a scheme with that name already exists, it

is replaced with the new one. This additional parameter

is supported:

/FILE <filename>

/HIBERNATE, /H {ON|OFF} Enables/Disables the hibernate feature. Hibernate

timeout is not supported on all systems.

/NUMERICAL, /N Allows the power scheme to be operated upon to be specified

using a numerical identifier. When using this switch, in

place of the name of the power scheme on the command line,

specify its numerical identifier. This switch may be used

in combination with the /QUERY, /DELETE, /SETACTIVE,

/CHANGE, /EXPORT, and /IMPORT commands.

/GLOBALPOWERFLAG, /G {ON|OFF} Turns one of the global power flags on/off.

Valid flags (to be used after "/OPTION ") are:

BATTERYICON: Turns the battery meter icon in the

system tray on/off.

MULTIBATTERY: Turns on/off multiple battery display

in system Power Meter.

RESUMEPASSWORD: Prompt for password on resuming the

system.

WAKEONRING: Turn on/off wake on ring support.

VIDEODIM: Turn on/off support for dimming video

display on battery power.

/AVAILABLESLEEPSTATES, /A Reports the sleep states available on the

system. Attempts to report reasons why sleep states are

unavailable.

/BATTERYALARM, /B {LOW|CRITICAL} Configures the battery alarm. The

following switches can be specified:

/activate <on|off>

Enables or disables the alarm.

/level <percentage (0 - 100)>

The alarm will be activated when the power level

reaches this percentage.

/text <on|off>

Turns the text notification on or off.

/sound <on|off>

Turns the audible notification on or off.

/action <none|shutdown|hibernate|standby>

Specifies the action to take when this alarm goes

off. Not all actions are always available.

/forceaction <on|off>

Force stand by or shutdown even if a program stops

responding.

/program <on|off>

Specifies a program to run. schtasks.exe /change

may be used to configure the program.

/DEVICEQUERY <queryflags> will return a list of devices that meet the

criteria specified in <queryflags>. Possible values

for <queryflags> are:

wake_from_S1_supported - return all devices that support

waking the system from a light sleep state.

wake_from_S2_supported - return all devices that support

waking the system from a deeper sleep state.

wake_from_S3_supported - return all devices that support

waking from the deepest sleep state.

wake_from_any - return all devices that support waking

from any sleep state.

S1_supported - list devices supporting light sleep states.

S2_supported - list devices supporting deeper sleep.

S3_supported - list devices supporting deepest sleep.

S4_supported - list devices supporting system hibernation.

wake_programmable - list devices that are user-configurable

to wake the system from a sleep state.

wake_armed - list devices that are currently configured to

wake the system from any sleep state.

all_devices - return all devices present in the system.

all_devices_verbose - return verbose list of devices.

/DEVICEENABLEWAKE <devicename> enable the device to wake the system from a

sleep state. <devicename> is a device retrieved using

the '/DEVICEQUERY wake_programmable' parameter.

/DEVICEDISABLEWAKE <devicename> disable the device from waking the system

from a sleep state. <devicename> is a device retrieved

using the '/DEVICEQUERY wake_armed' parameter.

/HELP, /? Displays information on command-line parameters.

Examples:

POWERCFG /LIST

POWERCFG /QUERY scheme

POWERCFG /QUERY

POWERCFG /CREATE scheme

POWERCFG /DELETE scheme

POWERCFG /SETACTIVE scheme

POWERCFG /CHANGE scheme /monitor-timeout-dc 15

POWERCFG /CHANGE scheme /monitor-timeout-dc 0
