These options control when the monitor is turned off, when the computer goes to sleep, and when the computer will go into a hibernation state. Laptops will have more options than desktop computers since there are battery options on a laptop. Click on the Start Menu and then Control Panel, then Power Options. The first screen offers the option to turn off your hard drive after a set number of minutes. The video continues discussing the different options on the Advanced tab and the UPSs tab.
