used with an external ENERGY STAR qualified monitor, this feature
also supports similar power management features of the monitor.
To take advantage of these potential energy savings, the power
management feature has been preset to behave in the following ways when the system
is operating on AC power:
■■ Turn off the display after 15 minutes
■■ Initiate Sleep after 30 minutes
hh Waking the System Up
The computer shall be able to wake up from power saving mode in response to a
command from any of the following:

Energy Saving Tips:
■■ Turn off the monitor by pressing the monitor power button after a period of user
inactivity.
■■ Tune the settings in Power Options under Windows OS to optimize your PC’s
power management.
■■ Install power saving software to manage your PC’s energy consumption.
