Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

When PowerPanel is executed, you can put the computer in Video Standby mode. However, if it is not executed, you cannot put the computer in Video Standby mode.

You cannot put the computer in Video Standby mode without executing PowerPanel because this is one of the specifications. In ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) of Windows, the power management function is controlled by the operating system instead of BIOS. However, since the operating system (Windows) does not have detailed power management functions such as Video Standby, utility programs running on Windows must cover those functions. PowerPanel is a utility to cover functions that ACPI of the operating system (Windows) does not have.
