"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
