APM

Option name:

APM

Possible values of an option:

[Enabled], [Disabled]

The option description:

The given option is responsible for support of the expanded control by a supply (APM — Advanced Power Management). This technology allows to translate at computer idle time it in one of modes with the under power consumption.

Usage APM is actual now only for the out-of-date computers which are not supporting more perfect interface of expanded configuring and control by a supply (ACPI — Advanced Configuration and Power Interface), or for old versions of operating systems (Windows 98 and earlier), nothing "knowing" about ACPI. If it is your case, install for an option value [Enabled], in all remaining cases APM it is possible to disconnect, selecting a variant [Disabled].

Expanded control of a supply provides that the computer can be in one of four states. The first is a normal operation (Normal). The second state (Doze) provides operation of components on the under frequencies with the reduced consumption of capacity. The third (Standby) — a doze mode. Some components of the computer are thus disconnected, but fast enough reset to operating conditions is provided. The fourth state (Suspend) provides more "scale" switch-off of a supply from components. It is necessary to mention and physical switch-off of a supply — thus the computer is completely de-energized.
