Thinkpad Power Manager settings vs Window 7 stock power plan

2013-09-29, 19:35 PM



As much as I can see, many of my ThinkPad w530 stock Power Manager options are the same as in Windows 7 power options (power plans). But I was not able to find anywhere an answer to my quite obvious question, which of them settings have a priority in the event, that they are different? Say, if I choose "Enter system standby" value "after 30 min of idle" in ThinkPad Power Manager, but set the value of the same option to "Never" or "5 minutes" in Windows power options, which should work? Or may be the both simultaneously? 





Certainly I can check it myself which a series of simple tests, how it actually works. But my question has a bit another point, that is how these things should work. (I have some minor issues, say, laptop does not go to sleep/standby when works on AC, although previously it did it exactly as it is configured in Power Manager idle settings. So in order to detect possible cause I whish to understand, how it should work.)
