For what ever reason I cannot get the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" check box to stay unchecked for my Intel NIC. Every time I uncheck the box and reboot it will automatically be checked again. I've tried this through Computer Management, Network Connections and System Properties. I know they all lead to the same place, but I was just hoping that one way would work. I don't know if it has to do with XP Power Options or Lenovo's Power Manager. I've checked both of their settings and see nothing on them.
Here is the hardware/software breakdown:
- Lenovo ThinkPad T61
- Intel 82566MM Gigabit
- Windows XP SP3 (All available updates)
- All available device drivers are done (known of through Lenovo System Update or Microsoft Update)
Thanks for the help
