APM on desktop

Utilizing system check by SiSoft Sandra the following warning was initialized.  Using APM on desktops my result in reduced performance or delays.  Please advise my course of action to comply with the above mentioned warning.  Solley55.
1 Solution
The best way is to disable APM in Bios setup - set 'Power Management' to 'Disabled'.
Solley, this message from the Sandra utility is advisory in nature, not mandatory. If you are running the full version of Sandra and review that advisory, you'll note that it depends on the type of motherboard and other issues such as whether the motherboard supports the new APM model or implements ACPI (Advanced Configuration Power Interface).

Also, by merely shutting off the APM features in the motherboards bios (depending upon which motherboard your system is using) may result in the loss of other features.

You may want to review the manual for your motherboard in order to determine whether this change is advisable.
