Category Function

REPLICATOR SCSI Configures computer for use with Advanced

Port Replicator. SCSI drivers will load automatically if a SCSI device is connected.

REPLICATOR NETWORK Enabling this category and installing is_net.exe utility allow user to configure network drivers for use with Advanced Port Replicator.

Configures the ring speed for the Advanced Port Replicator.

Displays type of microprocessor installed.

Displays amount of system memory.

Displays amount of external cache memory.

Shows the type of Dell Latitude Advanced Port Replicator that is attached to the computer. There are no user-selectable settings for this option.

Displays computer's five-character service tag number.

Displays computer's customer-programmable asset tag. This category only appears if user has entered an asset tag number.

POWER MANAGEMENT Enables computer's power conservation features.

BATTERY One of the categories of POWER MANAGE

MENT. Set different time-outs for the following options when the computer operates from battery power: DISPLAY TIME-OUT, DISK TIMEOUT, SUSPEND TIME-OUT, S2D TIME-OUT, SMART CPU MODE, and BRIGHTNESS.

Changing the BATTERY option takes effect immediately (rebooting is not required)

AC One of the categories of POWER MANAGE

MENT. Set different time-outs for the following options when operating the computer from alternating current (AC) power: DISPLAY TIME-OUT, DISK TIME-OUT, SUSPEND TIMEOUT, S2D TIME-OUT, SMART CPU MODE, and BRIGHTNESS.

BATTERY STATUS

Determines how long computer operates without detecting I/O activity before display is switched off to conserve battery power. This option should be disabled if software compatibility problems occur.

Determines how long hard-disk drive is idle before drive motor turns off to conserve battery power.

Determines how long computer is idle before suspend mode is activated.

Determines how long computer is idle before suspend-to-disk mode is activated.

Allows microprocessor to slow down when inactive. If software runs particular slowly, this category should be set to DISABLE.

Determines the brightness used when running from the battery.

Determines if computer exits suspend mode if an installed modem receives an incoming call.

Determines if computer resumes normal operation from suspend or standby mode if an alarm from RTC is detected.

Indicates whether the computer enters suspend mode when the display is closed or whether only the display is turned off when the display is closed. SUSPEND (the default) indicates the computer is in suspend mode when the display is closed. ACTIVE turns off the display, but does not put the computer into suspend mode.

Determines if power switch serves as a conventional on/off switch, or toggles computer between suspend-to-disk operation and normal operation.

Displays percentage of charge remaining in battery.

Category Function

INTELLISPIN Compensates for unbalanced CDs that cause the computer to vibrate when the CD-ROM drive is in use. Allows use of discs that might otherwise be unreadable. Available for CD-ROM drives with speeds of 6X or higher. HIGH PERFORMANCE (the default), lets the CD-ROM drive run at the highest speed. VARIABLE automatically lowers the CD-ROM's speed to reduce or stop the vibration.

PRIMARY PASSWORD Displays the current status of the primary pass word and allows you to assign or change this password.

ADMIN PASSWORD Displays current status of computer's adminis trator password security feature. Also used to assign and verify a new administrator password.
