Power options

I have an Acer 5920G laptop running Vista. The Power Management options keep resetting themselves randomly, e.g. time before turning off display, putting computer to sleep, display brightness, etc. It also sometimes switches between the various modes, e.g. Power Saver & High Performance.


Any ideas how to fix this?

Disable Empowering Technology because it overrides Windows power management...

:D

I did wonder about this, but the options in Empowering Technology always seemed to have the same values as Windows. Anyway, I have done as you suggest, so hopefully this will solve the problem. Thanks!
