Hi Ztruker,

Thank you! The only option there is below on screenshot translated it says "selective suspension enabled". I found other setting in the device mgr. but the attached energy report is still complaining about a setting I cannot locate.

Thank you for your help, henk

what exact setting do you want to change and Why do you want to change it?

The energy file (recommandation SF) attached points out that some USB settings are not optimal, that is the only reason plus my curiosity that I cannot find where to change these settings, thanks henk

Whether the settings are optimal or not really is your opinion. They may be optimal for the OS and the hardware in your system and power config. Otherwise why would they be set that way?
You still haven't stated what problem you are having with the settings as they are and what setting it is.

No I don't feel like downloading a ZIP file to page through and find what you think is wrong when you can just state it in a post. Doing that is like a test, a scavenger hunt. See if you can find the problem I am talking about. Sorry I don't do Tests.

Edwar, I really do not understand your reaction. My conclusion must therefore be that you also have no clue where to find the USB settings that should be optimised according to the SF energy test (tutorials). Better say that next time. It is all about battery life and battery drain while in standby mode, sorry being interested in that. My question is and was WHERE are these additional USB settings, nothing more nothing less. I showed that they are not available where Ztruker pointed out.

It is just the way I am. Instead of posting all those ZIP files you could of simply stated what setting you want to change and the problem you are seeing in that report.

I looked at one of them and some were highlighted in yellow, IIRC, but nothing really popped out at me saying THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG AND SHOULD BE CHANGED.

Could simply be they are hard coded into the OS and can't be changed. I run several notebooks and in all honesty I have never had a problem with the USB ports draining the battery if nothing is plugged into any of them.

I'll run that test myself and post back. I don't have my Dell E6420 at home right now but I do have a Macbook Pro running Win 7.

Sorry if you feel insulted.
