Display the current power setting:

POWER


Parameters
drive: ( ADV[:MAX|REG|MIN] v6.0)
Conserves power when applications and hardware devices are idle. In some cases, performance may be affected if an application is active instead of idle. Use MAX for maximum power conservation. Use REG, the default setting, to balance power conservation with application and device performance. Use MIN if the performance of an application or device is not satisfactory when you specify MAX or REG.
OFF (v6.0)
Turns off power management.
STD (v6.0)
If your computer supports the Advanced Power Management (APM) specification, STD conserves power by using only the power-management features of your computer's hardware. If your computer does not support the APM specification, STD turns off power management.
