Windows 7: Enable and disable hardware command...?

Enable and disable hardware command...?

Hi,

I recently disabled several hardware items on my laptop (CDROM, PCMCIA, etc.) to save the battery life.

My question is, is there a way to setup a "command" to enable and disable these hardware without going to the Control Panel, etc.?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards,

A shorter route would be Start > right click on Computer > Properties > Device Manager. Is that any help?

Hello Ekopaxus,

You can use this Device Manager shortcut to make it easier to do.

Hope this helps,
