power options properties help me understand


Q

qcanpc18

I have recently re done my laptop, running windows xp, sp3, I am unsure what
to set in the power options properties. My laptop is always plugged into
power sourse, so I do not keep battery in all the time. I was told to , by
dell, to shut down over night when not using it. Ok, but in the daytime if I
am away where do I leave it in- do I log off, go to standby or hibernate?I
do not see a sleep button on my keyboard- very confusing- at the moment this
is what I have done-turn off moniter-never-plugged in-turn off hard
disks-never- system standby-never- system hibernates-never-under advanced-
close lid-do nothing-press power buttonon pc shutdown- when I press sleep,
whereever it is located? I chose standby- I checked enable hibernation, right
or wrong? I do not even know how to enter hibernation- I would love some
guideness - a grandmother who is confused- thankyou all-

Just turn it off when you aren't going to use it for an hour or two.

Start
Turn off computer
Turn off
