Default Power settings problem - 09-04-2010, 06:25 PM

Ok so I have a mini 10v with xp. When i go to graphics properties/display settings/ power settings/ it always reads running on battery even when its plugged in and gives me no choices to change anything. What gives? been like this since I got it 4 months ago. I would really like to be able to change the settings on this thing to help save battery. any help would be great. thanks.

If you set the screen resolution with F4 & F5 keys. Set it with the power lead on and it remembers it. Then unplug lead and lower the the setting with battery power only and it remembers it. So when lead is plugged in the screen gets brighter, and when mobile on batteries it stays lowered resolution for less power consumption. Hope this helps.
