Disable NIC powersave in registry
Posted on 2002-06-05
One of the settings within XP Pro allows you to diable its ability to turn off power to a certain device. This may be a USB or a NIC card. I have 80 computers I want to deploy a change to and don't want to have to do it by visiting each one. I'm sure there is a registry setting for this but I can't seem to find it. Here's the problem. Under Properties -> Power Management of my NIC card there is a checkbox for "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Currently all of the XP boxes have that box checked. I want them all to have that box unchecked. Can anyone tell me where in the registry I may be able to find the setting to do that? If I can get the registry setting I can distribute it through the logon script and save a ton of time. Thanks for any info!
