Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Power management, part of CompTIA A+ Exam Prep (220-901) Part 6: Laptops and Mobile Devices.
- I don't know about you but it feels like my entire life…today is nothing more than me moving from one charger…to another charger without my different laptops…and mobile devices and everything else.…So what I want to talk about in…this episode is power management.…Power management basically means to make…your device use less power in one way or another.…Now, power management has been around for a long time.…The original standard, advanced power management or APM.…Dates from the early 90's.…
It was quickly replaced with a much more…advanced standard called,…advanced configuration and power interface.…Better known as ACPI,…which is what we use and love to this day.…You'll hear the term APM, and it is listed as an objective.…ON the A plus but it's really we lived…and have lived fro decades in an ACPI world.…So, with that understanding in mind,…the first thing I want to talk…about what does power management mean.…Now, if you have an intel based system,…it's going to have power management…built into the CPU itself.…
