    MC 5 Windows 7 64bit and Power scheme warning

    Ok so whats the solution to removing the power scheme warning at launch?

    I've solved it on 2 machines but have a 3rd machien that defies fixing.

    I've created a power plan called Always On and set that to max performance.

    The console command powerman doesn't seem to do anything.

    So how best to not get that nag every launch?

    Thanks

    Just did a clean install to Windows 7 64 bit from Vista64 so I'm resetting some of my settings, what worked for me in removing those pesky messages although not nearly so bad as Vista64 was.  Go to search programs and files, type in Power Options select  High Performance go into change plan settings and select Never, Never for display and Sleep. Hope this helps!

    Pat, I had a similar problem some years back.  It turned out to be caused by a wrong BIOS setting.  Try checking whether you have power management active in the BIOS.

    Pat,

    make sure the power management does not switch off disks or other equipment (as said by scocklin) select never in the various categories. Also make sure that no screen saver is active.

    Yes I tried that. Initially it comes set to balanced. I changed it to high perfomrance and then modified it to have everything never sleep and nothing less than 100%

    That didn't work it still moans on Avid launch. So I then made a new plan called always on and set that to be 100% and never sleep and active and Avid still moans.

    Checked BIOS and power management is on.

    What's strange is it moans about Home/office power management profile and there isn't even one!

    Re: MC 5 Windows 7 64bit and Power scheme warning

    I've excperienced such a problem on some XP machines before... the easiest way for me to fix it was to copy the powerconfig-settings from a "good" system to the one that moaned. you said you have 2 systems that behave fine? so you can try this:

    -Go to one of your "healthy" systems and launch the Registry Editor (Start Menu->Run->type
    in "regedit")

    -go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER directory

    -Go into the Control Panel directory and find PowerCfg

    -Right click on PowerCfg and select export

    -You should see a radio button selection on the bottom of the window for Export
    Range.  Make sure that Selected branch is active

    -Export the reg file and bring it to the other system

    -On the other system, simply open Regedit and select import from the file menu.

    -Navigate to your healthy PowerCfg registry file, and hit OK

    The error should go away once you have done that.  You may or may not need to reboot the system for the fix to work.
    I've done this successfully various times on XP32bit systems, never tested it on Win7 but it's probably worth a try!

    best of luck!
